does the mac support mpeg movies ????
Depends on which flavor of MPEG. There's three of them. MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and now MPEG-4. You'll get both MPEG-1 and MPEG-4 support out of the box. But for MPEG-2 support, there's a $19.99 add-on to Quicktime that you'd need.Originally Posted by tb2830, post: 205890
For Windows Media, there's a plug-in you'll need called Flip4Mac that allows you to view Windows Media files. It's free and distributed by Microsoft. Once you get your Mac, you can the Flip4Mac plug-in here.
Both of these things above are plug-ins for the Quicktime player that will come with your Mac. Just extends its capabilities.
Oh and BTW... congratulations on your decision! I'm absolutely sure you'll love it!
And I didn't even have to weigh in on the discussion!
