    Microsoft no longer develops or supports Windows Media Player for the Mac. It recommends Flip4Mac and even posts a link to the Flip4Mac website. Your installation of Safari opens Windows Media content in WMP because that's what you have installed. If you install Flip4Mac, then Safari will use QuickTime and the Flip4Mac codec to handle Windows Media.

    Flip4Mac is usually better. If you have an Intel Mac, then it's almost certainly better, there is no Intel Mac WMP program.
