I'm not sure (no PIMP ehm WIMP on my mac ;-) but i guess that MP for 
mac uses the same
codecs as QT on the mac (besides its own ones ), therefore you can 
playback these
sounds on the mac...

RR on the mac only suports QT as the multimedia-engine, so i think they 
are probably QT codecs,
that will not play on win in the WMP...

QT shares its resources etc..., read MP Mac can use them, but WMP does 
NOT share its codecs...
Means QT cannot play WMA files on the mac like the MP can... WMP is a 
bit selfish... ;-)

I doubt ;-)
