How Do I Play WMV Files On A Mac?


I just switched to a Mac, can I still play all of my old WMV files?

The best solution for WMV files in Mac OS X is VLC Media Player. VLC will play tons of different file types including WMV and AVI.

There is a version of Windows Media Player for Mac, but Microsoft no longer supports or maintains it. Flip4Mac is also available as Microsoft's replacement for Windows Media Player, but we recommend VLC for your WMV needs.
