Yes. For WMV, you need Flip4Mac's encoder, which plugs in nicely into Compressor. For Real, you can download the Real QT Encoder. Its free, but is a pain in the butt to find. I know they had a compatible version for OS X 10.3 and PowerPC, but I haven't kept up since 10.4 and the Intel switch. For a while there though, I know Real encoding wasn't possible on 10.4 or Intel mac machines. Best place to look for Real support is the helix community site: https://www.helixcommunity.org/ or http://forms.helixcommunity.org/helix/builds/?category=helixdnaclient
Thanks for the help. Now for more stupidity: Which flip4mac do I need? Player Pro? Studio Pro? Also, do I need this on all of my Macs for them to play WMV's, and do all of my students with Mac's need it?
I understand the problems with Real and would certainly prefer not to deal with it. My problem would be solved if I could get the WMV's to work.
