How do you open up files (usually email attachments) with various extensions.
Also what are the download sites for various Apple programs. I used to know them but haven't had an Apple for a few years.

The freebie iSquint will convert your WMVs to more generally useful
formats and even optimize for iTunes/Pods:
web page
Webopedia says the WVX extension identifies a metafile. That mostly
means a small file that points to the real file on the web. It's purely
a Windows thing (I think). Ask your correspondents to (1) send the
file itself instead of a pointer or (2) send you the URL so you can
find it yourself.
The ETC file type is converted by hanging a dead chicken under
your northeast eave at midnight under a full moon.

Using info in this thread, I opened my unuseable .wvx with textedit and found a url in it which I copied to Safari. The movie loaded and played (I do have flip4mac) and let me save to desktop as a quicktime movie.
