    NBC Olympics...

    How the hell do I watch the videos on a non-intel mac...

    Video is currently supported on the following browsers:

    * Internet Explorer 6, 7 for Windows
    (Vista, XP SP2 or greater and 2003)
    * Firefox 1.5, 2, 3 for Windows
    (Vista, XP SP2 or greater and 2003)
    * Firefox 1.5, 2, 3 for Mac
    (OS 10.4.8 or greater, Intel only)
    * Safari 2 & 3 for Mac
    (OS 10.4.8 or greater, Intel only)

    There's gotta be a way...

    I also have a non-intel mac, so I'll be using the following "hack" to watch videos:

    1. Steal my brother's Macbook Pro
    2. Watch fencing

    What os do you have on the mac?

    It says that Silverlight should work on Firefox/SeaMonkey/Mozilla and Safari with Mac OS 10.4/10.5 PowerPC.

    There is something called Moonlight though... It's a 3rd party version of Silverlight that works on Linux... So... you could reinstall Linux through VirtualBox and use FF in Linux to watch it, but you probably won't

    Simple solution: go to the library and hope they have a pc.

    Complex solution: Run an emulator over your mac. Buy a $200+ vista installation (or buy an old xp, it'll be better). Then, spend 1 hr+ trying to install it.

    Oh, I almost forgot... Extremely simple solution...: buy a pc...

    anyways, back to the real topic...

    Which version of OS X do you have? Click on the apple button on the top left corner and click on something that says system of some sort... that'll tell you...

    then again, i hate macs, cant use them well, so if theres a mac expert round here, don't listen to me...

    Well, can you run Windows on it? It would be wrong though for someone to go and download a torrent of windows 98 SE and run that over virtualbox... >_>

    although i usually hate emulators, they're just another obstacle. i usually cant getum to work either... meh oh well!

    i prefer to install linux straight by means of a .iso file, then burning onto a cd. (or in the case of open suse, a dvd)

    I'm more familiar with VirtualBox. It's by Sun Microsystems and I know that it supports many operating systems.

    On VB, once you have the Vdrive made, you can into the settings, on cd drive, and there's a place where you choose the .iso to mount. It runs that .iso as if it were a cd. Then you install, shut it down, and remove that .iso and it boots the virtual machine into the recently installed OS.

    It says Silverlight 2.0 is for mac, but when you install it says not.
