Play unplayable AVI/WMV files
Authored by: aegisdesign on Jan 09, '06 08:25:16AM

Seems like a lot more bother than downloading the flip4mac WMV codec and using Quicktime.

http://www.flip4mac.com/wmv.htm

$9.99 after the trial period.

That's not a panacea. I use flip4mac and have many AVI files that will not work. For what it's worth. many of these same AVI's don't work in Window Media Player 9 (on my PC) either.

Uh, are you sure that program will play FourCC WMV3 files embedded in .AVI containers? A brief google search seems to indicate not.

when using Flip4Mac, I have no problems playing any wmv file inside of Quicktime.

My experience is different. Many of the newer files do not play with this or WMV Mac
