Want to play Windows Media files (wmv, mms, wma, asx) on your Macintosh Safari and Chrome browser?
You’ll need to install a free plugin that will give your Mac Quicktime player the extensions it needs to play Microsoft Windows content.
Here are the steps to install the required plugin:
1. Download the free flip4mac plugin from Microsoft’s website and install per the simple instructions on that page.
2. Restart your Safari or Google Chrome browser and launch a page with Windows Media content to see if it’s working.
3. If you still see ‘plugin needed’, then you may need to manually enable the plugin in your browser. In Google Chrome, type chrome://plugins/ in the browser window and (assuming you’ve already installed the plugin) scroll down the page to click on enable for the Flip4Mac WMV plugin.
