Out of the box, QuickTime cannot play back one of the most popular formats found on the Web: The Windows WMV format. Microsoft used to supply a Mac player for these files, but no longer. Instead they suggest downloading the free Flip4Mac WMV player which is actually a codec that extends QuickTime to allow it to play back WMV files in both the QuickTime player and the browser. Don’t be alarmed by the Web site’s talk of a pro version. You only need the free “trial” version if you are not creating new WMV files.
