It worked on Leopard... no more on Snow Leopard.
Even if Flip4Mac. What's the problem? 32-bit? or what?
What can I do?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.1)

    If you don't have the latest beta of the Flip4Mac codec, download it here:

    and install that and see if it helps.

    Can you post the URL to the stream so that others here can give it a try?

    OK, I can duplicate the problem. At this time Flip4Mac doesn't seem to have a fix for this issue for QuickTime X Player, but if you run QuickTime 7 Player, it will work there. QuickTime 7 Player may already be in your Utilities folder, but if not, you can install it through the Optional Installs on your Snow Leopard installation disk.

    I just did that. thanks

    But in this site there's no mms url, wmv or whatever in the source.
    When Safari is loading the site, automatically the streaming starts once directly into a new QT window, with a unique code.
    So I can copy the url to put on QT.
    In the source - Exclusive player

    Is there a way to force Safari [or Flip4Mac] to bring the streaming to QT 7, launching a new QT window?
    Was possible in this way 'til Snow Leopard.

    Since I don't read Portugese I can't be certain I'm not missing something, but every video I can find on that site is in Flash format, which QuickTime (even QT 7) cannot play. Make sure you have the latest version of Adobe's Flash Player installed.

    See this site:

    In the source code:

    asx = windows
    An ASX file (Advanced Stream Redirector) is a special type of file which works closely with Windows Media asf files.

    Then open this url in safari

    Then get the source again

    Note: full of Windows WMV, WMP
    It's not Flash for sure. It's wmv.
    You may test it on a PC.
    The problem is the secure random code. So I need that Safari launches QT7 instead QTX
    this is the url and the random security code
    . ..bj8NLRF
    after a while the audio [only] starts working, but I this in a separate QT7 window

    is there a solution?
  • Verzig Level 1 (0 points)
    Here.... The Safari's plugins.
    The Flip4Mac WMV Plugin allows you to view Windows Media content using QuickTime. — from file “Flip4Mac WMV Plugin.plugin”.
    QuickTime now is QT X. I need Flip4Mac to asks for the QT 7.
    Any help?

    I would suggest you take this question up in the Flip4Mac forums. It's their product and they'll be most likely to provide a solution, if one exists at this time; they've indicated that there are problems that will require a new release of their plugin to fix.

    Good luck.

    Telestream has released a new version of the Flip4Mac codec that might improve things:

    Some notes from Telestream:

    "While support for the latest OS is good news, we’d like you to be aware of some changes in Snow Leopard that affect Flip4Mac WMV (see Flip4Mac WMV FAQs for more details):

    • QuickTime Player X has removed export functionality to all formats other than standard Apple formats, including WMV. If you need this functionality, Apple continues to provide QuickTime Player 7.

    • In Safari 4, Flip4Mac WMV runs with limited functionality.

    • Safari 4 now runs in 64-bit mode by default, which causes Flip4Mac WMV to run with limited functionality. However, you have the option to run Safari in 32-bit mode."

    Telestream has additional information here:
