Sometimes the Windows Media Player will seem to "hang" when loading a program, or playback will be very choppy.
Note: When viewing a Webcast presentation on a Mac system running 10.4.x, there may be a long delay before playback begins. In some cases, this delay can be a minute or more. This problem only seems to affect Mac OS 10.4.x. Earlier versions do not seem to have any delay issues when starting playback
Microsoft dropped support for Windows Media Player 9 for Mac OS X in January, 2006. Instead, they distribute a third-party QuickTime plug-in called "Flip4Mac."

The next time the web browser is launched it will run under Rosetta emulation and presentations should play back. You may experience some sluggishness from the response of your browser.
