    "Reinstalling WMP doesn't fix flip4mac virus"

    Version: Flip Player 2.0.1

    Summary

    Reinstalling WMP? That's the first thing I tried at 1.0.2 time, even THEIR tech support couldn't fix the problem on a fresh system when I talked to Joyce for like 1-2 hours . I don't ever dare of trying this software again! If you want to see what I'm talking about, uninstall flip4mac however you can think of and see that WMP is still totally useless.

    Always nice to see developers fix problems so fast, very nice only just after the new QT release. Very nice plugin, works fine with most files. Also very nice that it's free now, I believe we have MS to thank for that.

    "Problems with Flip4Mac 2.0"

    January 12, 2006  |   By Jefferey S Mousseau

    Version: Flip Player 2.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I saw a review of this product in MacWorld and bought a license at the end of December. All worked fine and looked like a great product. I was a bit upset after paying for the product less than 10 days before it became freeware (they had to know at that point about the Microsoft deal to distribute it as freeware). Got an offer of $20 and upgraded to version 2.0 of player (in order to use rebate for Flip4MAc Import), but now Safari crashes after viewing of WMF. I feel a bit ripped-off by this whole deal.

    "crash and save problem"

    January 11, 2006  |   By mars-ten

    Version: Flip Player 2.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I was apprehensive to install this free version, as it would knock out the previous one I paid for which worked fine even with 7.0.4 - Having the same crash problems after closing each movie. Also I am no longer able to save movies, which worked well before. Do not install this until there is a fix or a Quicktime update! Generally like this plugin a lot - rating is only for version 2.0

    "works fine for me!"

    January 10, 2006  |   By darkdog

    Version: Flip Player 2.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I just installed it (and i downloaded it from the regular download link here on VT) and it's great to see that now its playback abilities are available for free -- all i want from wmv files is to read them, so i have no need for importing / exporting and things like that.

    all i have to say is that it works better than MS's own Windows Media Player for mac. Really. I don't have to open the dreadful player anymore, and Flip4Mac actually managed to play flawlessly a wmv file that WMP refused to play.

    So, considering it works even better than the MS alternative even though this is MS's technology, and considering it's free, i have absolutely nothing to complain about.
