I did all what advised corentin, but nothing changed, the same ipod comes back again and again; What to do next if the dance around the computer fails? But anyway, licensing stuff seems to be offtopic att osnews, so I should have asked it on slashdot anyway. It might still fail, but at least you'll have tried the correct approach. I bet I'm not alone in wondering what's the thinking behind the plugin development for browsers which development has been abandoned. We all know how that would go over within the mac community. This will enable users of Mac to enjoy audio and video content with Windows Media and ensure that content providers can encode their content once to reach the broadest possible audience. I haven't heard bad things about that, yet. The parent in this thread was asking about 6.
Don't forget Quicktime for Windows. Sporting a new brushed steel skin for Apple's newest operating system, this new version of our player opens the world of Windows Media 9 content to Mac users, enabling them to access the best audio and video on the Web. You get a higher quality product for only like 2 extra bucks at most if you don't shop at expensive record stores. View the software on its merits. Your current content will still be protected. If you tell me it's 11 or 16 or even 32, though, I'll agree it's annoying. I love iTunes even for Windows.
I just recommended it to my friend this weekend - he wanted something that could play pretty much everything he threw at it and save him from the jumbled mess that is windows media player. Again, I ask, what could be of such earth-shattering importance? Firstly, it's got a shiny metal skinned interface which goes again the Windows interface guidelines. The installer left my Classic version of Windows Media Player 7 alone, so I can't imagine it effecting 6. In fact, that's Microsoft's selling point -- that it features that nifty brushed-steel appearance. More information about Windows Media can be found at.
Recent editions are better, but only some versions will play some movies, and so forth. Stifled competition in the Office Suite market is largely thanks to people like you who support proprietary formats. As opposed to search Amazon, order, wait a week. My files wmv always show the same stupid ipod advertisment! There are other better players for other formats. Then someone thought he should be punished, which I find unfair it has happened to me, too.
I basically use something if I have a need for it. There's no way to tell Media Player to install anywhere other than the Applications folder, and apparently no way to move the Applications folder to another drive, so I guess I'm stuck. Though I can understand your preference otherwise. Microsoft is offering Mac users shitty knockoffs of Windows software. About Windows Media Windows Media is the leading digital media platform, providing unmatched audio and video quality to consumers, content providers, solution providers, software developers and corporations.
I keep a Windows build of mplayer, patched for Tivo files, around for that reason, also. Perhaps your installation got screwed up?

I've already downloaded and installed this and it is without a doubt one of the worse releases of a piece of software I've seen. Ultimately it's convenience vs quality which means there's room for both. I don't think it was the Mac interface standards that he was having a problem with. Pretty it may be, but it doesn't look like a normal app. That's double standards, to me.
New plug-in support added for Internet Explorer, Netscape, and Safari enables playback of Windows Media files right from the browser. If it doesnt work, ur fucked. Windows does not have ease of use. The checkbox in the Get Info window indicates that the file is unlocked. I held off on installing it for quite a while after seeing all the baggage that came with a Windows install, but it's pretty clean and seems to stream video well. The player will come with two additional skins, including a miniplayer skin for simple audio playback.
So this is a definite good piece of software to have on mac. Aside from the other top media players for Windows, a lot of Windows users still use it because it co. The current installer seems to actually install. Surf, find, download, you got it. Microsoft stopped updating Windows Media Player for Mac some time ago.
Bad Thing: Crashes most every day that I use it. I haven't heard bad things about that, yet. It does everything this crappy Windows port does and more. Windows Media offers the industrys only integrated rights-management solution and the most scalable and reliable streaming technology tested by independent labs. The reason for this is because the previous version's installer kept crashing and I never managed to get it to work. Nope, the old version doesn't work once you've installed the new one! It not only played the files that the last version wouldn't, but several files that had audio or video glitches when played with the last version now played flawlessly.
