Playing WMV9 files on Mac OS X

Imagine my joy this morning when I tried to play the OVA and found that it was encoded with WMV9, which does not work on the Mac.

Some people report they can view it after they install Flip4Mac but I didn't have any luck, on either of my Macs.

I was able to play the file using the weird WMV3 Server method that's posted at the bottom of page 1 of this thread.

But it took so long to get to that point that I've only been able to watch the first 8 minutes so far. Le sigh, but at least it's working now. I hope that's helpful for someone else.
