  • Most folks find their problems are solved if they try using the VLC Media Player instead: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html
  • Try using Windows Media Player to view on both PC and Mac.
  • Almost all archived files are .wmv files. 
  • Mac users: NOTE that you may need to install a special viewer (Flip4Mac, Media Player HD, etc.) to play on some Macs.
  • For viewing on iPads/iPhones, you will need to install an app specifically designed to view .wmv files (Try the VLC viewer).
