OT: help me mac users

Why does my browser (safari) try to open wmv files in word? Pisses me off to no end.

Is my os (10.2.8 ) just too old school?

Help me obi wan kenobi, you're my only hope.

maybe

Try downloading a new version of windows media viewer for mac. that worked for me. Macs seem to really hate wmv, half the ones I view, don't work. Wish everything was in Quicktime, none of that buffering crap that wmv produces. good luck. adios, Atom...

I'm at 10.3.9 had a similar problem a while back. Wmv tried to open in Illustrator.
Easy 2pt fix:
1- Instal newest version of Window$ player.
2- Get Info on a wmv file(Cmd+I), change open with to Windows Media Player. Select Change All.
Now wmv files will open in the correct ap from either your HD or downloaded from the web.
I also like QT better, it is a superior product and awesome quality.

Thanks guys, sounds easy enough. Is windows media player free? I guess I'll google it and see.

i use wmp 9, but i believe there is also a plugin for quicktime that will allow you to open wm files in quicktime if you want to stay away from ms stuff....
