  • You may need to download Flip4Mac which adds the Microsoft codecs to Quicktime. The player capability is free, but you can also pay (around US$30 I think) to get the encode capability to create .avi and .wmv files etc, amongst other capabilities.

    Download from the telestream dot net website or the microsoft dot com website. Microsoft also have a Silverlight plugin for browsers so you can view their proprietary media-rich web display protocol.

    Good luck, I hope this helps.
