Microsoft Discontinues Mac Media Player Development
“Microsoft has officially halted development of its Windows Media Player for the Mac and plans no future Apple Computer versions of its music-playing software.
“The company will continue to offer the current version for download. It also has announced a deal to offer for free the Flip4Mac plug-in from Telestream that will allow Mac OS X users to play Windows Media video and audio directly from Apple’s QuickTime Player software.
“Microsoft has not released a significant update to Windows Media Player for Mac [since] November 2003.”
