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.
