Bill and other Macers--
     I just played the Windows Media sound-clip on 
my Mac without any trouble (i ran the High-res TV 
spot). It was at 

"Adaptive Enterprise television
You must have Microsoft's Windows Media Player or 
Real Networks' RealPlayer installed on your 
computer to view these videos. Ads are available 
in high-resolution and low-resolution formats. 
Those on dial-up or slower connections to the 
Internet should choose the low-res version.
Constant Change
» High-res
» Low-res
Change television spot
» High-res

Music is "Blue Skies," written by Irving Berlin, sung by Maxine Sullivan"

     I've got a Mac G4 (400 MHz) running OSX 
10.3.6 (but with 1.12 gigs of memory). The 
version of Windows Media Player is 7.1.3.  (I 
also have a pretty fast cable-modem.) I have 
played lots of stuff (both videos and audios) on 
WMP without any trouble, so maybe you need to 
delete everything relating to your version of WMP 
and download a new copy of it, including any 
plug-ins in your web-browser's preferences 
(file-helpers).  As i recall, WMP also worked 
when i ran OSX 10.2.8, so it sounds like an 
     Good luck!
