 So long, Windows Media Player on OS X

This article contains some solutions to continue to play Windows Media files on your Mac.

"The first I saw of this story was when I got an upgrade-nag e-mail from Flip4Mac, which makes a QuickTime component to play, import, and/or encode Windows Media on Mac OS X (your feature set depending on how much you're willing to pay). What was so interesting was that the basic player was now free (down from $10), and being distributed on Microsoft's site. Initial rumors that this represented a wholesale abandonment of Windows Media Player on the Mac seemed like an overreaction until Microsoft confirmed it."
