I'm having trouble decoding .WMV movies on my older Mac. (PM7600/G3,300/OS9.1)<br>All I get is raw data IE; a screen full of nonsensical characters. This happens in both Netscape 4.9 and IE 5. I have the helpers for .wmv mapped to Windows Media Player, but no luck. <br>Any suggestions?<br>Thanks,<br>Jon<br><br>
When it does that save it (what you want to view) to your HD and they should play that way.<br>That happens to me on my G5 a lot too with windows media files.<br>To save right click mac style (hold down control and click on the link, then save)<br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by gnfnr2k on 09/12/04 04:12 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
Right click on link to file and 'save file as' (or whatever it is in IE). Download to local disk. If you have Windows media player mapped correctly it should have teh correct icon. Double click to play.<br><br>There are some 3rd party apps that may help play files also. Check Versiontracker.com<br><br>Aoteroa - Land of the Long White Cloud

Right click? What the heck is a right click? LOL<br><br>Thanks, though Mat and others. I can indeed view them if I save them to the HD, or paste the URL into the Windows Media application and let it do it's thing.<br><br>I appreciate the help you all offered.<br><br>Jon<br><br>
