Yes - I use a mac version of Windows Media Player. Damned if I can recall where I downloaded it from though...

Download the Mac version of RealPlayer. The latest version plays .wmv files.

I have the latest version of RealPlayer (v10.0.0) for Mac OS X, but it cannot play .WMV files. It can, however, play .MOV files.

For .WMV files, Windows Medial Player (v9.0.0) for Mac OS X is the only thing I know that can play them. It can be downloaded free at...

VLC media player

OS X version will play literally anything.

It's also a better DVD player than Apple's.

Ah, I just tried it, and yup... it plays .WMV files, too. Cool! I did not know that!

I just checked out the site. Looks pretty cool. I'm downloading it and will give it a try as well.

I'm using OS 9 and .wmvs appear as a page of gobbledegook text. But here's a trick for anyone having the same problem. cmd-click (right-click) on the .wmv and choose DOWNLOAD LINK. Then go to the folder you saved it to and double-click it there, and it'll launch IE and then Quicktime will run it.
