    I have a Sirius account and I would like to listen to it on the internet but the problem is listed below
    I have windows media 9 installed and the lastest flash installed also and all I get are the messasges listed, any help would be great, thanks....

    Safari can’t display content on this page.

    Some content on this page requires an Internet plug-in that Safari doesn’t support. The application “Windows Media Player” may be able to display this content. Would you like to try?

    the playlist format is not reconized

    Flip4Mac

    I don't know if this will help for Sirius or not, but have you downloaded Flip4Mac? I had to do that to listen to DC101 online.

    He is correct Flip4Mac is the answer. The free plugin is funded by Microsoft noted in this press release ---> Here

    You can download the quicktime plugin ---> Flip4mac

    I am also a huge sirius listener (as well as a losing investor). I would recommend Sirius Mac. It's a third party app and it works great. I believe the website is siriusmac.com. It's basically a little app that looks like a stiletto. You can get the high quality stream with it as well.

    Oh, and heres another one. starplyr.com. This one is in a free alpha stage (I think you may have to pay for it later). It has a lot more features though.

    Where do you get that? Microsoft endorsed Flip4Mac when it dropped Windows Media Player 9.0 for MacOS X. The Flip4Mac plug-in was free before Microsoft endorsed it. It was free after Microsoft endorsed it. Microsoft did, however, provide a link to download Flip4Mac. Nowhere at no time did anyone say that Microsoft would fund Flip4Mac, either in the press release or anywhere else.
