    so I got my new Macbook Pro last week, played around with it and its really good. I just run in to a bunch of problems... like when I try to play videos from the www.wwe.com website, it doesn't show eventhough I have the plugins it told me to download.
    Also, when I want to open flash .swf files, it ends up opening the whole Flash program instead of just the .swf. Also when I want to open a .html file I created in dreamweaver, it ends up opening the whole dreamweaver editing program instead of the actual webpage. So I would have to right click > open in FireFox or whatever. Its annoying. How do I fix this stuff?

    This will allow you to play SWF files: http://mac.eltima.com/freeflashplayer.html and it's free.

    For your .html files, you need to Right-click on one, Get Info and change the default application associated with them from Dreamweaver to Safari or Firefox.

    for video files, just do yourself a favour and download and install the latest drivers from divx. They'll make most formats possible. But don't pay for divx, just download the free bundle, you don't want the player, just the drivers.

    Good luck.

    He's obviously got flash. All he needs to do is the same thing vanmacguy suggested for the html-filetype with swf-files.
