I get "The channel does not support the stream format." Is this because I'm using a Mac?

Can you try this one, it might work:

www.google.cn is now on the 3th google's result page for "censorship". And even on the first page when interface language is set to Chinese.
I like this action, because it's pretty ironic – people use PageRank algorithm to give Google a signal.

PS: Movie works in mplayer/linux perfectly.

Work fine in XP.

Nice video.

Thanks for the suggestion, Philipp. I was pretty sure I already had the latest WMP for Mac, but I tried reinstalling anyway from the link you gave. The problem remains. WMP on the Mac lags behind the Windows version, so it's not unusual for a file not to work.

I also tried it in MPlayer and VLC and neither of those worked either.

Textorizer looks clever. I see that it generates SVG files. Do you have the SVG file that was generated? I bet I could find a Java player for that.

Andy, here's the SVG version for you:

This works with Adobe's IE plug-in. Firefox seems to stall...

This SVG works also in Opera 8.

Thanks, Philipp, the SVG file works with Camino.

That's pretty nice. The SVG plays at a higher framerate than the WMV.
