    hey guys i got the newest macbook pro and i want to know if it came with quicktime pro player? or did it just come with the basic free one?

    also i wanted to play this video but this is what came up

    The document “Composition_Of_Functions-1.wmv” could not be opened. The movie is not in a format that QuickTime Player understands.
    You may need to install additional software to open this type of file.

    if it didnt came with quicktime pro player do u think it i get it, then will i be able to play the video?

    thanks

    QuickTime X should have come with your computer, and as far as I know it's analogous to QuickTime 7 Pro.

    To play WMV files you'll need Windows Media Components.

    I say "as far as I know" because I don't have Snow Leopard. They should have the same feature set, anyway.
