Mac Users,

If you have not done so yet, please download and install the free version of Flip4Mac here. You will only need to install the WMV components to view your videos in Arcadia. After installing Flip4Mac, you will need to close Safari and make one change to the Flip4Mac settings so you can view your videos.


  1. The first thing you will need to do is open up your System Preferences by going to your Apple Menu and selecting "System Preferences"

  2. Next, you will want to choose the "Flip4Mac WMV" icon to edit the Flip4Mac settings. If you do not see this icon, then there was a problem with the Flip4Mac installation. Make sure the installation has completed and then close and re-open the System Preferences to refresh the page.

  3. Now it is time to make changes to the Flip4Mac settings. First, we will change the "Browser" settings. Ensure that the "Always show movie controller" and "Maintain aspect ratio" options are CHECKED. Leave the "Launch QuickTime Player" option UNCHECKED.

  4. Choose the "Player" settings window and make sure that "Play movies automatically" and "Open AVI files" remain checked.

  5. After making these changes, you may exit Flip4Mac WMV settings and exit the System Preferences. If you are currently logged into Arcadia, you will need to logout and then completely restart Safari. This allows the correct Flip4Mac settings to be loaded properly.

  6. If you continue to have issues viewing your videos, please contact me at (806)-743-9271. You may optionally e-mail me at daniel.backlund@ttuhsc.edu and I will reply as soon as I can.
