    Loading .wmv into MX - can't do it...

    Hi,

    My client has given me several videos in Windows Media Player format.

    Wne I try to import the files into Flash MX, the files are grayed out in the dialog box.

    I can view the files on a PC with Windows Media Player, but right now the existing mac version of the player doesn't support the codec used (new version coming out soon). I'm wondering if this has something to do with why I can't import .wmv files into MX?

    Is there something basic I'm missing? Or do I need to somehow prepare the files differently? Any advice would be most appreciated!!

    cheers
    Jenny

    Hi, the thing is that it will work if u have directx 7 or higher installed (but windows only), i take it your on a mac, so what i suggest is (if possible) to get a mac friendly video format (Qt) , do a search on help/usingflash and youll see the video formats.
    Hope this helps.
