Why no wmv support?

Is it that hard to implement? I hate that apple has the cornered the market on video and mp3 players :frowning:

Yes, because the Video Engine is no QT only. So as long as QT doesn’t support wmv …


Fredo

Ironically wmv works well on OS X with Perian and Flip4Mac installed… :open_mouth:

Oh, didn’t know that.
So there are QT .wmv codecs available for Mac!?
Third party I suppose.

Hello (Fredo)

We have a very nice knowledge base article regarding the new video engine. Please have a look here

Cheers,

Hahaha. You can expect some kind of payback for this one.

What! No popcorn eating emoticon?

Anything like Flip4Mac for the PC?

Not that I know of. But you can easy convert the wmv to say h.264 with MPEG streamclip etc.

Sadly it looks that MS lost the video codec race. Very sad, since they really had professional codecs, and nothing of the api troubles which is with quicktime (legacy)
