Hi,

Most of the time i can not see the video files (WMV files) other members have uploaded. I'm a Mac user and i'm running OS X 10.5.1. I use the latest version of the Safari Browser 3.0.4 with QuickTime 7 Pro as video player. I have installed the component plug-in "Flip4Mac WMV". Normally i'm able to see WMV and i have tested it on other websites. Anybody else have the same problem or maybe a solution for this?

Thanks

Hi,

Thanks for your answer ..

Yes have checked for all the updates and i just did again. I have now deactivated some video formats in the Quicktime MIME settings to force the download of these files instead of viewing them in the browser. Like this i'm able to use different local video player. What i have noticed is that the file name of the downloaded video is something like filename.wmv.avi, i think the .avi extension is added during the upload function used by the forum(?). As soon as i remove the extension .avi at the end i can see the movie with quicktime (Flip4mac component). I guess thats why the safari plug-in of quicktime can not show the movie. This is working for you ?
