oh, sry, to play a wmv or wma file, flip4mac or VLC nightly are both better than mediaplayer.

Do you have an intel mac? I believe it doesn't work on intel macs so you should try Flip4Mac and that will serve you better.

DO NOT install Windows Media Player!!! It's a nightmare, won't uninstall without a hassle, and does not work properly under Intel.

DO install Flip4Mac...It's fantastic, works great, and is actually what Microsoft wants you to install now instead of the unsupported WMP.


But in case you come across other programs like WMP, yes, you need StuffIt Expander. Google it; It's free.
