    Or VideoLAN Client, a freeware app (available at http://www.videolan.org). By the way, Microsoft has a newer video codec in WMP 9 for Windows
    for which there is not yet a Mac version. So if WMP plays the audio but
    no video, that's probably the problem. The Microsoft site says a Mac
    version is coming Real Soon Now...

    Exactly so.
    As originally typed, there was no 'space' between the g in org and the
    close paren. That's all that's needed.
