Watching WMV's In QuickTime Is Now Free

Microsoft is giving away the Flip4Mac plugin that allows you to watch WMV files directly in the QuickTime player. Just last week the Flip4Mac plugin was $10, but apparently Microsoft felt more people needed it. I’ve tried it before and I thought $10 was a little steep when the VLC was free. I’ll use it for free though.

Watching the streaming clips at CNN has been vastly improved since I installed the plugin. The clips used to hang and I could hear the audio, but the video would freeze. Now I can actually watch the clip load in the QuickTime status bar and playback is smooth.
