Something for my Apple loving readers

My co-worker, Cyril, mentioned that Telestream, a company we use at work has just released a FREE WMV for Mac Quicktime Plug-in.

I know that many Mac users are faced with trouble when they want to view WMV files, hopefully this solves the problem.

Telestream is known for fairly good codecs and transcoding, so the plug-in shoudl work great. Apple users, please let me know how it works...

I just use Windows Media Player for OSX. Haven't had any problems with it.

Just like Bill, The Window Player for OSX basically works, although it would be nice to be able to view content right in the browser rather than it launching as a new application. Frankly I'm more interested in a good .avi plug-in for QuickTime. I can at least already view .wmv files but .avi never works properly.

Yea...I "do a little work with the US Army" and use this company's products there....

on a related note, it appears M$ has announced it will no longer make Windows Media Player available for the Mac - so this is good all around.

I've been using Flip4Mac Studio Pro since last May, it's been mostly a hit so far. Big plus in that it lets me view and edit wmv in quicktime enabled apps, but load time is slow when playing wmv in quicktime, scanning through a clip is slow, but that's somewhat inherent in all wmv. Embedded wmv works most of the time, overall very solid, just minor streaming video issues that I can live with. Being able to work with wmv with all my video apps makes this a good thing.

avi I use 3ivx D4 and Divx6 components, covers most of my video codec needs. Now if someone can sort out HDV...
