comment Where is nmblookup in Lion?
Well, that explains why you couldn't find it in your path. As I mentioned earlier, I think a viable alternative is nslookup. I believe that this should be included with Lion as it is a standard utility across most platforms.

P.S. An alternative utility is nslookup.

Note that the which command will only work if the command can be found in the user's $PATH. In this case, it is pretty unusual why /usr/bin has not been added to the user's path.

It should be in /usr/bin. At least, it is on my system. If you want to look for something that is not set up in your path, you can cd to the root directory, and type the following command: find . -name "<name>" -print

@hobs - No problem. Thanks for that. In fact, I have solved the problem. I ended up converting the WMV file to MP4 (a format that Adobe Flash Player understands). Have a look at TeX-LateX.SE for the solution.

@Kaushik: Thanks for your reply. As a matter of course, I have posed the same question on the Adobe forum. Will let you know how I go.

Will it interfere with what I already have installed, that is with flip4mac? In other words, will I need to uninstall flip4mac before installing VLC? Furthermore, will it resolve my interface problem with Adobe Acrobat reader?

Just to let you know that I decided to install flip4mac. While it does function according to specs, it does not interface with Adobe Acrobat reader, meaning that I have to download the plug-in that supports the media file format. Unfortunately, the third-party media player required to play the selected media file is not available for my system. Adobe, however, recommend that I visit the Apple web site for QuickTime player....hence my reason for installing flip4mac!!! Nevertheless, I appreciate your help.

Thanks for that. From your reply, I gather that Xvid and VLC are stand-alone products in their own right. I had a look at perian and, although it can be used with all QuickTime supporting apps like QuickTime Player, NicePlayer and QTAmateur, it does not support all formats. Decisions, decisions....
