Flip4Mac on intel Macs
Apparently, Flip4Mac – the WMV-plugin Microsoft has endorsed while killing WMP for the Mac – doesn't yet install and/or run on intel Macs. Until a native version is available there's a workaround using Rosetta
for you intel Mac users out there...
Basically, you have to set "Installer.app" to open in Rosetta-emulation in order to install Flip4Mac, otherwise it just won't install. After having successfully installed Flip4Mac, turn Installer.app back to its original state. Now, if you have to watch a WMV file, simply set QuickTime Player to also run in Rosetta-emulation. I guess you could duplicate the application and set one to open in Rosetta, the other natively. (Flip4Mac will only work if QT Player runs in emulation right now.)
The real thing will, of course, be a universal binary distribution of Flip4Mac, for which intel Mac users are waiting.
