I just downloaded the latest version of flip for mac to view WMV. and it um screwed something up. Im getting a mac os error 50 saying it couldnt open the file. and then those files went from Quick time files to normal folders :( and now its saying theyre not video files..lol..do I have to uninstall flip for mac and reinstall it? some videos are working. but a majority of them are not. any help appreciated.

It's a good thing I didn't download a few minutes ago when I got the message to do so.

I love Mac (apple products), but sometimes they can really suck. Hope you get this issue solved soon.

Just get VLC. IIRC, that will play them.

Also, I think Perian is a better codec packet than flip.

It's by far the most versatile media player for the Mac.

DO NOT play avi files in quicktime. It butchers them, skips frames, or kicks out sound.

They are.

But they're different.

It's like learning a different language. There are key differences you need to know...

VLC, DiVX web player, and Handbrake are all the media programs a guy needs.
