I have just looked at the link to vicplayer you recommended and it indicates that it is suitable for mac versions 10.6 etc.


But mine is 10.5.8. Will it work? The site offers downloads to two sites for 10.5 (not 10.5.8). One 24.2 meg and one 23.2 meg Are either of these relevant. I am confused as to what to download!



CompExpert :

sorry for the confused, the one on the left side is for intel cpu and the right is for power pc cpu.

you imac should be a intel cpu, so download the one with 24.3mb for os 10.5
