If you are trying to use Windows WMA/WMV format media files under the MacOS in HyperRESEARCH or HyperTRANSCRIBE, please read the following:
HyperRESEARCH and HyperTRANSCRIBE use Apple Computer's Quicktime for media (audio or video) playback and management under both the MacOS and Microsoft Windows. Under the MacOS, Windows WMA or WMV files, such as audio file from an Olympus digital recorder for example, will be greyed out when trying to open them from within HyperRESEARCH or HyperTRANSCRIBE. To access these files, you need to add a Quicktime extension called Flip4Mac that allows Quicktime to read these formats. The extension is available at <http://www.microsoft.com/mac/products/flip4mac.mspx>. Once you've downloaded this and installed it, all Quicktime-enabled applications will be able to use WMV and WMA - including HyperTRANSCRIBE or HyperRESEARCH.
To now open WMA/WMV files under the MacOS, hold down the Option Key when you click the "Media File" button or Open Media File from the Media Menu in HyperTRANSCRIBE or select the Sources > Open Source >Movie or Audio... menu item in HyperRESEARCH. This will let you select WMA or WMV files.
