I don't know about the earlier comments about this not working. I have yet to run across a WMV file it wouldn't play. Fairly smooth integration into browsers via QuickTime.

Someone add the icon: http://www.flip4mac.com/images/0_wmv_101.jpg

DOES NOT decode a large proportion of streams. For instance, go here http://www.ed.ac.uk/explore/av/gifford/ and click the first link for the Chomsky Video (the second link is audio only).
Flip4mac pro simply states "invalid transport" as does real player (what the Univ Edinburgh recommends).
Using WMP however, results in flawless playback of the stream.
Ditto hundreds of other wmv files I've come across on the net.

Not too impressive then :(

When Microsoft answered that they had stop supporting WMP, I downloaded this app and nothing worked. I got rid. About 2 days ago i decided to give it another try so far it seems to be working.

wow its even faster than the beta!

2.1 universal released!!


might work, might not work. is a 50:50 thing. The old stand alone MS WMV player at least played, but with this one its a gamble. On my Mac Mini it works, on my PowerMac it just does not at all.

Reluctant user

the beta works well for my macbook 1.83. i'm an xmradio subscriber and wasn't able to listen to this (or NPR.org) until i installed the universal beta.

the new beta works fine on my intel MacBook
