    That's a Windows Media Player file. Microsoft dropped development of WMP for Mac long ago, but you may be able to use the free version of Flip4Mac. I know it works with Media Player's .wmv files. Work a try on the .wpl files.

     

    It's here:

     

    Windows Media player for Mac - Flip4Mac WMV Overview - Telestream

     

    F4M simply does a conversion to allow the Media Player files to run in QuickTime, which s already on your Mac.

     

    There are some Microsoft codecs that won't run on Mac at all. Such is MS....

     

    If F4M doesn;t work, try Googling "wpl mac." Ther appear to be other convertor out there.

    .wpl typically contain a link to a mediafile. What worked for me is opening the .wpl file with TextWrangler or something like that to find (and copy) the actual URL to the file location.
