I did a search for "How To Uninstall Flip4Mac" and it turned up only suggestions and discussions about uninstalling it.

How do you uninstall Flip4Mac?

I have the WMV Studio version...does this make any difference?

    You might check Flip4Mac's online knowledge base. Depending on your version, this might help you along:

    Open the Flip4Mac folder (Applications folder). They've included an uninstaller package.

    If you only want to disable its internet plug-in (in favor of using Windows Media Player's plug-in) then go to Apple menu > System Preferences > Flip4Mac WMV > Plug-in and uncheck "Use Flip4Mac WMV Internet Plug-in" which disables the Flip4Mac plug-in and enables the WMP plug-in (in /Library/Internet Plug-ins.) The option is only available if you have both installed.

    Thanks Julie Julie Julie - now my $2000 PowerBook can view video again.

    Since I'm not on Tiger yet, I still get to use that ANCIENT old fossil Windows Media Player and - would you believe it!? - IT WORKS!!

    "One step forward - two steps back." These are awkward times for anyone who expects to watch video on a $2000 machine.

    Seriously, thanks julie julie julie. I wanted that old WMP back ever since I installed that woeful dog Flip4Mac and now I've got WMP up and running again.

    I should also note that Flip4Mac broke the video in the greatest news website on Earth - BBC News.

    The solution is for video content providers to author their video in the new Flash Pro 8 video player. I bet aliens from another planet could watch Flash video without any platform incompatability.
