    I'm running a Mac G4 with OS 10.4 and Media Player version 9. I've tried to
    open downloaded tutorials and I get a message: ".This file may not play
    correctly because it is compressed by using a codec that is not suported".
    I've seen this before on files that I haven't deemed important and ignored
    it. Now I need to open these tutorial files. I've received other Media
    Player files from other sources and opened them with no problem.

    Can anyone tell me what I can do to see these videos.

    What codec does the file use? It's entirely possible that as noted
    those files use unsupported codecs.

    Have you tried the Flip4Mac plug-in for QuickTime?
