One of the most important mistakes of QuickTime is that it isn't compatible with the vast majority of multimedia formats of the market and, due to this, we always have to resort to an alternative player if we want to enjoy certain files on our Mac.
In the case of WMA (Windows Media Audio) and WMV (Windows Media Video) there's a solution, developed by Telestream, known as Flip4Mac, that allows us to play multimedia files that are native to Windows directly from QuickTime.
The formats it's compatible with are the following:
- Audio: WMA 9, WMA 9 Pro, Microsoft G.726 / G.711 and Microsoft ADCPM.
- Video: WMV 7, WMV 8, WMV 9 Microsoft MPEG-4 and Microsoft Motion JPEG.
Moreover, Flip4Mac includes a control panel from which we'll be able to configure the functioning of the codecs that are part of it.
