Thanks - for the link and I had looked at this in the past, but tat the time I was interested in WiMP 8 support.
Yep. Even Microsoft's 8.0 or 9.0 Player doesn't support DRM on the Mac. All the video providers I've seen require WiMP 8 or 9, the media be verified with an internect connection using a user Id and password. The WiMP player or plugin on a Mac reports you don't have the correct digital rights to view the video, whereas the rest don't display video at all.
It doesn't really matter anyhow. I bought a cheap 2 gighz desktop PC with 512 megs Ram, 160 gig drive with 3 year warranty for less than it costs me to buy an extended 2 year warranty on my G4 1.25 gighz Mac Laptop and view the WiMP video on it. This will only become more convenient when Apple's boxes are all x86 and we can simply own one PC and reboot into WinTel when we want to watch DRM video.
