Are there any Quicktime plugins for .wmv?
I dont really like or want to install MS Media Player.

There are many shareware appplications with generously long free trials which will convert WMV to MOV file formats. As for Quicktime plugins, I found this: http://www.flip4mac.com/wmv.htm. I don't think there is anything free out there, though, unless it's open-source.

If you dont like WMPlayer... you can use VLC.. works great with .wmv files.

I've got the trial version of the Flip4Mac WMV Player installed. The website says that Tiger support is coming soon but it seems to work just fine with Tiger on mine. This is exactly what I was looking for.

VLC (VideoLAN CLient) is an open source media player

http://www.videolan.org

Problem is, I don't want another media player. I want to view a particular format (wmv) within QuickTime. Looks like Flip4Mac WMP is the solution for me.
