How do I play wmv files on my Mac?

Due to a lack of support for an audio codec (Windows Media 9 Voice) in most media players (quicktime, flip4Mac, etc), Mac users must download and install Windows Media Player 9 from this link:.

download --> Windows Media Player 9 for Mac OS X

Once installed, right click any wmv file on your mac and choose "Get Info". From the info screen select "Windows Media Player" from the "Open with:" menu to set Windows media player as the default application for wmv files.

Important: If you want to view the windows presentation, please use firefox as your web browser. Safari doesn't seem to work well with windows media player...
