Viewing Into Movies From The Other Site On Apple Mac Book

6 posts in this topic

Hi

On the other site some girls have free intro movies and when i try opening them on my Apple Macbook Pro 15" a black screen comes up and the sound plays but no video!

It used to take me to windows media player on my old windows computer and play there..

i tried d/l a programme VLC but that didnt make a difference...dunno if i have to change some settings?

thanks in advance for any advice

I'd have thought you should be using Quicktime to view movies.

The other thing is have you got the latest Flip4Mac plug in intalled, and ditto Adobe Flash player.

Are you using Safari or Firefox, as there is an ongoing dispute between Adobe and Apple, and movies wont work in Safari. I have this problem with BBC clips, so use Firefox.

Works fine for me on Firefox.

I also have Flip4mac installed, but I think I only need that for Safari...

sounds like they are .wmv files

you can download Windows Media Player for Mac OSX in order to be able to play these.
