Windows Media Player 9


I am using WMP9 and everytime I want to change the position of the video (the time, ie fastforward/rewind), it will do so, but the video will delay a good 5-10seconds. For instance, if I fastforward a video clip (doesn't matter what file size it is/how long the video is), the video will hold/freeze to where it currently is while the audio will play for 5-10seconds, and then finally it will catch up.

I have a Dual g5 2ghz, 2.5gb ram with OS 10.4.2

Same here. I think it's just one of the pitfalls of trying to view Microsoft-branded video on Apple hardware.

Also, why is this in "Mac Classic System & Sfotware" if you're using Mac OS X?

Most wmv movies can be played with VLC. But some codec are available only on WMP. Some even require the Windows version of WMP (those with DRM I think).
