Downloading a windows media player to a MacBook

I received great advice from hutchwilco on a previous problem, thanks.  My current problem is how to download a windows media player (version 9 has been recommended for my OS X operating system).  I can download the program but when I try to use it (ie. double click on it from my applications menu), a long document comes up titled Stuffit with nothing but nonsense symbols filling the page.  Sure would appreciate some help.  Thanks.

Stuffit is like Winzip for Mac.
Where are you downloading the media player from?
Do you have a copy of Stuffit it installed on your Mac so that you can decompress media player if that's the format you are downloading it in?

Error when trying to download MS strrets and trips 2006 w/ GPS lo

I have used every version of streets & Trips since 05, and have never had any issue with Win Media Player, currently using streets 2009 on one machine with Windows 7 RC1, which has WMP 11, and on another PC streets 2008 and Vista with WMP 11. You may need to change your default program settings for media back to WMP if you ever had another media player installed.

download real player, if everything sounds good with real player, uninstall windows media player and reinstall it. If you keep reinstalling it ontop of itself the issue will not get fixed. Its probably a media codec issue.
