    When you download a BMW-Film from BMW's website, it comes as a .mov file but a special player is used to play them. I want to burn these on to a DVD, but it won't let me. Is there anyway to get rid of this special player? I have tried importing it into iMovie and also Premiere, but neither work.
    Thanks.

    You can actually use Quicktime to play the movies. I have alot of the BMW films on CD and I just use Quicktime to play them. The BMW film player is basically a glorified Quicktime skin I think.

    Yeah, but still, iDVD doesn't let you import it and Quicktime Pro won't let you save it.

    How do I do that? If I open it up in Quicktime Pro and try to export it, before I even get any options a window opens up that says that it does not allow saving...
