I can't play some videos in Snow Leopard from either Safari or Firefox. It seems to be related to wmv files, even though I have the latest version of Flip4mac (188.8.131.52) enabled. Basically videos from this website (http://envoye-special.france2.fr/index-fr.php?page=reportage-bonus&id_article=59) don't play at all. When I click on play in the browser, it says "buffering…", but nothing happens even after waiting a while. The buttons don't even show in Firefox. Stranger still, I can't play the ads on the Apple website using Safari, whereas it works fine in Firefox. Likewise, if I try to watch the news on this French website (www.bfmtv.com), I can play the videos in Firefox, but not the live stream (Le Direct) and none work in Safari.
Thanks for your help. I didn't realise this and automatically assumed it worked with Safari 4 when I saw it was compatible with Snow Leopard. That said, it doesn't explain why I have problems with Firefox or why the ads on the Apple website don't play in Safari. Any ideas?
Yes, this is what I said. Snow Leopard is supported, but not Safari 4. Flip4mac therefore recommends using Firefox or Safari 3. But this doesn't solve my problem, because wmv videos don't play in Firefox either.
