How to Watch WMV on MAC Easily

<p><span>WMV, Windows Media Video, is a compressed video file format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. As we know that there are so many videos with wmv formats, sometimes you download them and then open them , but all you get is a lot of crazy code. Are you looking for an easy to watch wmv videos, especially as a mac user ? This article is about how to play WMV files on Mac so that you can watch WMV on a Mac computer, introduces three most popular ways to play WMV videos and some WMV conversion apps.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Tips: If you want to convert WMV videos, a video converter is needed here. <a href="">video converter mac</A> can converts video files such as MPEG1, MPEG2, MP4, 3GP, 3G2, AVI, Mpeg, HD video formats including MKV, TOD, MOD, TS, TP and TRP. and output video formats including MOV, FLV, MP4, AVI, and MPG.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>1. Watch WMV on Mac with VLC Media Player</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>VLC is a media player like QuickTime and Windows Media Player. Many view VLC is a good alternative to the these traditional media players because VLC is available for many different operating systems and is an open source software project that is supported by many dedicated programmers across the world.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Until recently, only experimental versions of VLC for Mac OS X could play WMV videos, but no longer. VLC for Mac OS X now supports WMV video. You can download VLC from the VLC media player for Mac OS X download page.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>There are three types of downloads on this page: "Universal Binary", "Intel Package", and "PowerPC Package". The Universal Binary should work on any Mac, the Intel Package is meant for newer Intel-powered Macs, and the PowerPC Package is meant for older Macs that use the PowerPC processor. If you are unsure of whether you've got an Intel Mac or a PowerPC Mac, use the Universal Binary Package.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Once downloaded, double click on the dmg file, wait for a Finder window to open, and then drag the VLC icon to your "Applications" folder. In addition, VLC media Player supports audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>2. Watch WMV on Mac with Windows Media Player</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>Windows Media Player is available for Apple Macintosh computers. Microsoft no longer maintains or supports their WMP for Mac software, but they still provide it for you to download. You can download the software at Microsoft's website.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>When you go to the Windows Media Player 9 for Mac download page, you'll be given a choice between a .bin file and a .hqx file. If you have an older Mac, you should download the .hqx file. If you don't, then it doesn't really matter. Just make sure you get the English version.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>3. Watch WMV on Mac with Flip 4 Mac</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>As mentioned in the above that Microsoft won't upgrade windows media player 9, Microsoft did offer an alternative for Mac users: Windows Media Components for QuickTime Flip4Mac, which is developed by Telestream. With this QuickTime component, you can play WMV and WMA files directly in QuickTime Player and watch streamed WMV videos.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>If you just want to play WMV files on Mac, you can choose one of the above ways to do it. We recommend VLC player considering its powerful functions. But for converting WMV videos, this video converter mac will be a good choice, it is such an powerful software that it can act as <a href="">flv converter for mac</A>, mp3 converter mac, <a href="">avi converter mac</A>, mp4 converter mac, Mac MKV Converter, etc.</SPAN><span></SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN>

I seriously think that it may be a virus. I recommend you to scan through a updated antivirus. Also check if the format is supported by Windows media player.

Gateway Media Center PC is on, but there is no picture.

I have been fixing one for a customer. At first I thought that it was the typical burned out powersupply. Delta Electronics has created a replacement. The old REV 00 is 185 watts peak. The new REV01 is 185 nominal. Was the shaggy067 did not take the time to look up is that the 610 is an "All in one" modular monitor/case.
This customers is the first one that I have replace the power supply and it still does not work. I believe the flourescent backer of the LCD is shot. I will not know for sure until I find another one. The S-video works fine, so I am testing it using my projector. Everything works except the lcd panel.
