Default Mac can't open tutorials?

I am very new to 3d and computing. I am a Mac user and I have downloaded one of the free tutorials at Simply Maya but I can only open the image plane file and not the tutorial itself. I am very interested in the more advanced tutorials but I don't want to pay for something I can't use. Could someone be kind enough to tell me what format they are in or what it is that I need to open the file.

Cheers.

When I download the tutorial there would be a message saying that quicktime could not recognize the format. I just downloaded the windows media player and it opened the file for me. The crisis is over.

Thanks

Actually only one has worked completely. The other ones have picture but no sound. The file downloads as a .pl and is then unzipped as a wmv. How can I convert it to a file that will be readable.

convert to an avi if possible, we are at this time working on divx formats for all future vids from next month so this will sort you probs out..

Until then go to google and find out how to convert your files to AVI
