After Internet Explorer for Mac, it's now Windows Media Player for Mac's turn to end production. Microsoft is no longer developing Windows Media Player for Mac. But hey, that's not as bad as it sounds.
Because, you get to download the Flip4Mac WMV player, which can play Windows Media files inside the Quicktime player for FREE, from Microsoft Website.
The player will play Windows Media Video 9, 8, , AVI, ASF and other Microsoft Windows Media files including Audio, but not the DRM protected files.
Before you download make sure you have Mac OS X 10.3.9, Quicktime 6.5 or later .
