***STAY AWAY*** They still keep this available for a simple reason: To keep Apple OS X installed Macs UNSTABLE if owners are tricked to install it. This is a Carbon monster which can't even work fine on PowerPC Macs, I can't begin to imagine what would it do to Intel Macs especially after Leopard/ Snow Leopard release. Do not install, it won't play any modern wmv file and wmv streaming is in fact depreciated even on MS puppet sites. Install flip4mac quicktime components but be careful, they slip silverlight to it. Also you need to hunt its plugin files in /Library/Internet Plugins and move them to trash, just dragging application to trash won't fix a thing. Every single legitimate plugin in /Internet Plugins will be loaded by every browser which runs on your OS X. It may even force Safari&Others to "Rosetta" mode which you end up running a emulated browser right on your mac. Oh BTW, this is the real face of Microsoft for you.

It seems Microsoft WMP9 is gone. Link eventually takes you to Flip4Mac. Unfortunately there are still cases where WMP9 is useful such as when one encounters WM Voice Codec.

Oh, man, this is terrible. It won't even launch half of the time on my Mac, and it doesn't even have Intel support! Flip4Mac is the way to go!

Does anyone know how to view CNBC videos on a powerbook? I downloaded Flip4Mac (again). I already have the required version of WMP. Neither seem to activate/work when I click on a video on CNBC. davidminehart@yahoo.com

I hate WMP. It just dosent work at all. It buffers all the time (I mean I have real player and works perfectly). WMP dosent work with safari. C'mon were in 20 century and bill gates and his cronies have stopped making WMP for mac. Whats with that. I always watch CBC news with their online video service, this week they have converted to Windows media player. It buffers, then when it does start to play, the picture freezes when the video is playing - you can hear it, but no picture. CBC - Why bother putting this service up when you know it dosent work. Its like building a house - the plans call for bricks to be used, but you decide wood. And wonder why it dosent work. I dont know. I dont download WMP files as I cant be bothered any more.

Has anyone had any trouble with WMP and their "Intel" mac. I have a Macbook (Intel) and my window media player plug in for Safari just won't work. The player opens for other stuff...but Safari, nope!

Flip4Mac has replaced WMP. Yes, even on Intel.

WMP (or 'wimp') hasn't been updated in years, and is terrible anyway. It lacks a standard interface, and can't open over half of the windows media files out there. I'd use QuickTime any day.
