I want wmv for Mac Plugin?


Hi Trevor Jhon,

There are 3 applications which you can use to watch wmv files on your Mac Book and are listed below:

1. Flip4Mac Plugin: Now, the problem due to which wmv files cannot be played on your MAC is that it tries to open by default in QuickTime. Here’s is where this plug-in helps you the most as it enables QuickTime to play wmv files. Created by Telestream, it allows one to play both audio and video WMV files and the bonus is that you can also edit WMV files on your Mac.

2. MPlayer OSX : This software is specifically designed for MAC and can play WMV audio and video. But it comes with a minor glitch which is that the first time you play any wmv file, it has to build a font cache which takes some time but only has to be done once

3. VLC player: This is the all time favorite players for many users since it allows one to play any kind of audio/ video files including WMV J. It will not allow you to edit the WMV file though and has lesser options as compared to the above mentioned players
