Popwire WMV-9 Component

WMV-9 Component 2.0January this year, we announced Microsoft to distribute free WMV Component (by Flip4Mac), a component for QuickTime player to play Windows Media movies (.wmv). However, the Flip4Mac's WMV Component does not work on Intel-based Macs yet. The good news is, Popwire WMV-9 Component 2.0 has just released few days ago, and it is a Universal Application, it allows you to work on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macintosh computers under Mac OS X. (Thanks to SillyDog701 Member Pedro Saraiva for informing us.)

Popwire WMV-9 Component 2 is free for viewing and importing Windows Media content without any limitations. Exporting content required a license fee of US$ 49.


WMV-9 Component 2.0 also works for QuickTime based applications such as Final Cut Pro, iMovies.

If you have an Intel-based Mac, and would like to watch WMV movies under OS X, you might want to give WMV-9 Component 2.0 a try, and tell us how well it works.

System requirement:
G4 or higher or any Intel based Mac.
Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher for PowerPC (with QuickTime Pro 6.5.2 or later)
Mac OS X 10.4.5 or higher for Intel (with QuickTime Pro 7 or later)
