Well, using safari, firefox, and IE, I got the 
following variation on this error when clicking 
on the links:

Safari can't open 
"mms://www.accessibility.nl/games/video/michellehinn.wmv?SAMI=http://www.accessibility.nl/games/video/michellehinn.smi" 
because Mac OS X doesn't recognize Internet 
addresses starting with "mms:".

So once I retyped with just 
www.accessibility.nl/games/video/michellehinn.wmv 
-- it then let me download the video from each 
browser. it was then I discovered...I didn't have 
MediaPlayer installed on my machine at all!!! 
GASP!!! So Quicktime, Real, and ITunes would not 
handle it...forcing me to...go to the Microsoft 
page and download the MediaPlayer (oh the 
horror!).

Which for some reason wanted me to install it 
using EXCEL!!! $(#*$(@#*$(* -- so I instead 
downloaded:

Windows Media® Components for QuickTime, by 
Flip4Mac, you can play Windows Media files (.wma 
and .wmv) directly in QuickTime Player and view 
Windows Media content on the Internet using a Web 
browser.

Which didn't allow me to use closed captioning at all...

so i'm still trying to figure out why i can't 
open the bin file for windows media player at 
all...but the videos look great! once i get 
windows media player to open then i'll let you 
know about the captioning!
