Mine works ok too. But whenever I come across a site with only WMP I send them a request to use QuickTime instead. In order of preference:<br>- QT<br>- Real<br>- WMP<br><br>I wish Apple would make a QT player for Linux - then we can really hit the sites with the "supported on more platforms" argument.<br><br>
So true. Usually the QT streams/downloads are higher quality anyway, so it isn't much of a choice, but I still hate to use the wmv streams just on principle. <br><br>For the same reason its best not to set your Safari to behave like IE, then webmasters just think we're all using that steaming pile of a web browser and so there is no reason to support standards.<br><br>
That's ironic. What's the point of the open QT architecture to serve if they can't view? I mean, it was a good move by Apple to open it up to try and proliferate QT usage, but why would a Linux developer or Webmaster want to waste his time on setting up a QT server when he can't view its content? <br><br>
