I'm having trouble opening video content on the following site:

error message says something about not being able to find plug-in and MIME.

I've tried through Firefox and also downloaded something called Flip4Mac wmv, but i don't really know what I'm doing. Help??!

    That video content appears to be offered in an unsupported format. Most PC video content on the web is in wmv format, however, that can be a tricky thing. Some providers alter the code underneath the WMV wrapper, and the end result is a movie that cannot play, even with Flip4Mac.
    If playback of other wmv content works, then the above is probably what's goin on.
