I have flip4mac installed on my computer but I cannot play any wmv or avi files. Is there some seperate plug in I need.

Also, aside fro the Quicktime plug ins listed on the apple site, where can I find the most useful plug ins at?


Thank You In Advance

Are you sure Flip4Mac installed? Try running the installer again. There shouldn't be anything you have to do to make it work, so I'm wondering if it's not actually there.

Also, it won't really do AVIs, but get this and it might:

I say "might" because there's many different kinds of AVIs, but it should help with most of them.

Open system preferences and click the flip4mac icon and make sure the correct boxes are checked in each tab.

To cover all bases install DivX and XviD
