[color="Red"][SIZE="4"]..:: FAQ ::..[/SIZE][/color]


  1. [SIZE="3"]How to Mute the UX's Startup Sound[/SIZE]
    To have a quiet start, we can use a freeware tool made by Arcana Research: StartupSound.

    Image



    StartupSound.prefPane is the software which controls the volume of the startup sound of your Macintosh computer. StartupSound.prefPane mute the startup sound without changing the output volume setting. And StartupSound.prefPane limits the startup volume so that it may not become loud even if you make the output volume louder. To set up the startup volume, you select the "Startup Sound" pane added to the "System Preferences.
You will find the tool as well as some tips about the installation on the Official Website.


  1. [SIZE="3"]How to Play Windows Media Files[/SIZE]
    QuickTime is the standard de-facto for OSX users but there are many reasons to support also the MS'Windows Media standards. For playing these contents, we will install an new component for QuickTime, Flip4Mac™, which can handle Windows Media files (.wma and .wmv) directly in QuickTime Player and view Windows Media content on the Internet using a Web browser.

    Image



    Features:
    [INDENT]Supported Audio Codecs...
    • Windows Media Audio 9
    • Windows Media Audio 9 Professional
    • Windows Media Audio 9 Lossless
    • ISO MPEG Layer 3 (MP3)
    • Microsoft G.726
    • Microsoft IMA ADPCM
    • Microsoft G.711 aLaw
    • Microsoft G.711 uLaw
    • Microsoft ADPCM

    Supported Video Codecs...
    • Windows Media Video 9
    • Windows Media Video 8
    • Windows Media Video 7
    • ISO MPEG-4, versions 1.0 and 1.1
    • Microsoft MPEG-4, versions 2 and 3
    • Microsoft Motion JPEG
    [/INDENT]

    You can download it directly from Microsoft Download Center zone (step-to-step guide for installing it on the same page).




  1. [SIZE="3"]How to Play RealNetworks' Media Files[/SIZE]
    RealPlayer allows you to view RealNetwork's streaming media over the Internet on Mac OS X.

    Features include:
    • NEW TurboPlay: Practically eliminates buffering over high- speed connections so your clips start faster and play smoother.
    • RealVideo 9: Dramatically improved compression delivers unparalleled quality at every bandwidth - from narrowband to HDTV. Includes 5-channel RealAudio Surround.
    This 10.1 build 490 version of RealPlayer is recommended for all users. It contains all prior security updates and is a Universal Binary. This version also fixes some autoupdating problems with RealAudio 3.0 on Intel Macs, and fixes some problems with autoupdating for certain 3gpp content.

    Image


    You can download it from one of these mirrors.





  1. [SIZE="3"]How to Play DivX and Other A/V Formats[/SIZE]
    QuickTime by default supports only its native format it means you need to install, as for Windows, some codecs to play widely popular formats. The Windows universe counts a lot of codec pack (collection of codecs to play A/V contents): Mac users not but what is needed, as the Mac-philosophy (less for more) is available. If you don't like VLC that comes within all the necessary to play without additional component, you can use Perian.

    Image



    It is a free, open source QuickTime® component that adds native support for many popular video and containers formats such as:
