Sorry but I missed your previous post!
HWI videos on the original HWI website (now at archive.hayley-westenra-international.com ) were always designed not to be downloadable and when I took over maintaining the (original) site, I just carried on that tradition. They all play in a box inside an HWI web page, so to view them, you may need to install Windows Media Player for Mac (though I've never tried it as I have a PC).
Videos that I post here in the forum are designed to be downloaded - which in Firefox you do by a right-click and "Save Link As", like the new Classical BRITs video www.hwi.proboards.com/index.cgi?action=display&board=Media&thread=5408&page=11#116694 that I recently posted. When you have saved it to your computer, that's when you may (or may not) need to have VLC Player for Mac OS.X to play it.
Oh! I see. Haha I feel kind of dumb now :-[ The Classical Brits video plays fine on my Mac with VLC.
Funny thing, I didn't change any settings since I last posted, but now all the videos work!
Wow. That's pretty darn cool! It works great, thanks!
I hadn't heard of that before today! But I just read an article extolling the wonders of the "activity window" and it sounds really powerful. I tried it on the same page you provided, but there was no file ending with .wmv or any video extension. They were mostly .jpg. Weird. Haha.
Thank you so much, Dave and Bill!!
