For OS X users

One possibility is of course VLC media player. But all windows media files play on a mac with Flip4mac plug-in. It's official and free.
You can download it here:

MAC OS X Users

a smart swiss found the solution late last night: Install VLC.... and there you go......!

To Hear and see the Audio and Video files with a MAC!

I found the solution to see the audio and video files on a Mac was to copy the address (of the audio/video). Then open up Windows Media Player. Choose, from File menu, "Open File..." and paste the address here. Then you can enjoy the performances!

Mac Users

We are aware and deeply sorry with the difficulties that Mac Users might face with our videos.

At the moment YLE supports Windows Media Videos, but we are currently trying to find an alternative solution that would work for Mac users too.

The solution below might work for your problems too!


Mac Os X

Normally every mac has the recquired software. But you can download (for free) windows media player and real player. Then it should work just by clicking on the titles. You have to use either Safari or Firefox (new versions) as your browser

Mac OS X User

Its a sad situation for Mac Users - we can't download the videos....! Or has anybody a solution - except getting special software ??

In the Dane Johansen audio

In the Dane Johansen audio it takes some time for the music to start - the file seems to work, but you just have to wait a moment!


Dane Johnson's video and audio

There was a momentarily problem with these files - try them again, and please let us know if they still won't open correctly. Sorry for inconvenience.


Video and audio

Cannot load Dane Johansen's video and audio files. Something wrong with them?

Music titles

Thank you for your question! You can find all the music titles in each contestants own pages.


Martinelli Massimiliano

Refined and touching performance! You gave us a thill in our soul! Italy support you! Good luck!

Stefano Cerrato

Stefano, you're the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We're all with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Forza Puffo!!!!!!!!!!!

Stella+Francesco e... Tosca+Luce (che fanno anche loro il tifo per te!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Go Julia go!

Julia, we just listened to your video and thought you sounded great! Good luck!!!


Jean & Charles

Music titles?

Are the music titles perhaps still on their way.? It is sometimes annoying not to know which piece I am listening to.
