no video when using mac osx windows media player

Can't get video only audio when using mac osx version of media player to download video clips. Everyone is running into this problem. What's the solution.

Re: no video when using mac osx windows media player

Same Problem, I get a pop-up that says:
"The specified stream type is not recognized."
Hardly a recommendation for the format.
