i have some wmv files on our linux server and unfortunately mac users can't view them. what are the correct mime types that will allow mac users to view the videos?
i can supply list of current mimes sets, and also the link to the videos.
help is muchly appreciated
it fires up iTunes
The user needs to have an application that can open .wmv files, like Windows Media Player or VLC and they need to set that app to be the default app for that file type.
Most likely, the user of the mac tried to open a .wmv in iTunes once and clicked the "always use iTunes for this filetype" before they found out it wouldn't work. Install the right software and all should be well. Both the apps I mentioned provide the opportunity to change system defaults (although the system tends to do it on it's own once the software is there.) :)
