Mac owners

You can now get the excellent Flip4Mac Windows Media Player components right from Microsoft’s site… and the playback components are now free. Do yourself a favor if you haven’t tried these in the past, as they are miles ahead of Msoft’s player, and getting better all the time.

Nice. Thanks!

Cool beans!

Only posting this, since my link might have cause a few folks grief :)

if you upgrade to QT 7.04, WMV files will crash QT, and Safari if the file is viewed from the browser. The files will play fine, the crash occurs when you close QT, or when you browse to another web page.

Known issue… the guys released the new version of the codec the day Apple released the QT update, and the update broke something.

The fixed version (2.01) was pushed out today:
