Hi Matthew,

You must convert the file from .avi into QuickTime .mov. You can do this by downloading any freeware converters from the Internet. Here is a link to one.

Or you can try downloading Mac Perian, a QuickTime component that adds support for many file types.

You can also download another media player such as VLC media player, which has support for numerous video extensions.

Hello

There is version 9 of Windows Media Player for Mac but some people were having issues installing it. Microsoft has also discontinued updates for it.

A better alternative is to play Windows Media Player files is through Quick time player on Mac. There is no need then to convert your videos first before watching them. You can download the program here
