Ask Max: What to do with .eml and .wmv files from PC users?

Asked on 04/11/2007:

My PC friends keep sending me emails attached with .eml and .wmv files.

How can I play the PC-based files under Mac OS 10.4.6 (Tiger)?


.WMV files are Windows Media files. You can download a player from Microsoft, but the better solution is to use a program called Flip4Mac. It is also found at Microsoft's site through this direct link.

.EML files are outlook email files and should not come in as attachments. That is a common way for viruses to spread in the PC world. Your friend should instead "forward" those emails to you, not attach them.

Hope that helps
