View Full Version : flip4mac does not work

9th March 2007, 10:52 AM
Installed latest updates for quicktime.
Installed latest flip4mac.
I drag a .wmv into the wmv player icon and then quicktime opens and says 'Error opening movie. The movie could not be opened.'

any ideas?

Sounds like a really stuffed/weird video... You tried under windows (seeing that you have an intel mac).

Did the wmv file work before the updates? If it is a fresh file, chances are it might be a WMV10 or 11 file. Flip4Mac and VLC can only do WMV9 or earlier.
