I saw that. It would be nice if Apple did the same for WMP users.
This plugin isn't created by Microsoft. It's just being endorsed on the Windows Media site.
That said, I agree - it would be nice to have a DirectShow filter that would allow us to play back QuickTime movies in WMP. :)

Don't see why everyone is linking it from the Microsoft site: http://www.flip4mac.com/wmv.htm

It's not even a new product, I was using it months and months ago in beta. The fact that it's free is a new aspect is all.

edit: for reference, it doesn't work with the latest version of Quicktime that most people will have upgraded to recently. However, it's a known issue that's been worked on. Niff.

Didn't know. Just saw it posted in a few places earlier today, figured some of you here would be interested, and posted it. :D

It is a nice product, I will say that. It works great. Just not so much at the moment... at least until a fix for the new QT is released :)

I was about to post about this here and then saw the thread. I've been putting off getting this because of the $10 price tag. Well, it's free now! :D

QT Alternative

I'm sure you are well aware of this, just thought I'd throw it on in here.

err. was talking bout Windows?
I took it as NetRyder talking about Windows, yes.

I would be nice if Mac users could view WM* files using QuickTime or whatever and Windows users being able to view QuickTime files in WMP. To be honest I don't see why in heck they can't come to a mutual business agreement to do this. Maybe someday.

I give Microsoft credit for suggesting another product since they are ending production and support for a Mac version of WMP.

PS: It's not like I like QT or WMP but I do think that by default one should be able to play the differing formats on said OS w/o extra BS involved.
