    i want to be able to listen to my favorite morning radio station from my mac... but when i go to their website to listen, safari says it can't, and i'm assuming it's cause it's windows media player and not quicktime or whatever. is there a work around for this? maybe a plug in that needs to be downloaded? if so, can someone point me in the right direction as to which one and where to find it?

    THANKS!!

    Just FYI, for other video content aside from Windows Media, Perian works well.

    i installed the flip4mac but it didn't work... this is the error message i'm getting when i click the "listen live" link on this website: 97xonline.com

    error: The page “97X..” has content of MIME type “application/x-oleobject ”. Because you don’t have a plug-in installed for this MIME type, this content can’t be displayed.

    Did you restart Safari, QuickTime Player, iTunes, etc. after installing? If it still doesn't work, log out then back in.
