WMV playback on Mac OS X
What is the current state of WMV compatibility with Mac OS X? I don't have a Mac so I don't know these things.
For playback I see several options. There is Flip4Mac and also a version of MPlayer for OS X. There are probably others too. How well does Flip4Mac work for playing WMV files? How well does MPlayer work for WMV files?
I have used MPlayer on Linux and am able to play non-DRMed WMV files. I assume it will work the same on the Mac.
And what about video converters that handle WMV? I see iSquint (free as in beer) and VisualHub (not free). I'm sure there are others. Is it convenient to convert WMV files to something more Mac or iPod friendly?
I'm asking because I'm curious about how convenient WMV video clips are for Mac users. It seems that WMV support on Macs is better now than it used to be.
