I just downloaded wmp 9 for os X and it has been working great. But, when I went to a website I get this "WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER NOT INSTALLED
Windows Media Player is not installed or was not correctly registered as a plug-in.

Please click visit www.microsoft.com to install the latest version of Windows Media Player."

Well you shouldn't be going to that website anyway, try this one. Have you guite and restarted your web browser. If that doesnt help try out flip4mac

Microsoft themselves recommend Flip4Mac over their dated version of Windows Media Player. You'd more than likely have more luck trying that. :)

EDIT: beaten by less than 60 seconds by dpaanlka. Ah well:p

That looks like it's because you have Windows Media Player installed. Try uninstalling it and then try installing Flip4Mac. :)
