Actually Microsoft make a Windows Media Player for the MAC. By using this plug in he will not only be able to use Mac media but now he will be able to use Windows media available also.

Try not to save it in Windows Media Video if you can. It's more possible to play WMV files on Macs now than it has been in the past, but it's not an option that's available in a default OSX Mac. Something saved in mpeg should work, if you can save it in Quicktime that would be optimal.

Get him to install the free version of Flip4Mac plugin for Quicktime. It will play both wma, wmv. Windows Media Player for Mac is not supported by MS anymore.
