It plays on our work PC, but I can't get them to work with any of my Mac's browsers.

The first clip is from SNL. It's the two a-holes buy a Christmas tree sketch with Jack Black. The a-holes are Jason Sudeikis and Kristen Wiig, featured players. They are both great but I absolutly love Kristen Wiig.

There are some other SNL clips, along with Mr Show, The Daily Show, etc.

WMV player worked for me on my iBook G4 800.

Quite a handy program. It handles WMV files nicely.

How are you getting WMV to play the videos? I have it, but I still can't get them to play.

They play inside Safari for me. Make sure you have the Plug-in checked under System Preferences.

That must be it. Is there supposed to be a WMV icon in system preferences? Thanks.

Yes, there should be an icon under "Other" entitled Flip4MacWMV.

I've run into uncooperative sites before. Strangely if I already had WMV launched but just sitting there, then the item would open in a window via that app, but not via Safari/FireFox.

brof, thanks for that link. That "Two @#$%&" one is just painfully, painfully funny.

As soeone sort of mentioned above, the key is a program called Fli4Mac which is free. Google it and get it. It will play .wmv files for you.
