    Hello,

    I have a problem playing a video file using QuickTime on a Mac.

    "file" (run on a linux box) says the following about the file:

    MPEG sequence, v2, MP@ML interlaced Y'CbCr 4:2:0 video, CCIR/ITU PAL 625, 4:3, 25 fps

    I can't play this file on a default install of Windows either (using WMP), but I remember I once could (on another install).

    I can play the file using VLC just OK on both platforms, but I need to get it working (preferably) with QT in OS X or WMP in Windows, so it will hopefully play in PowerPoint too.

    Regards,
    Jaka

    Have you tried installing extra plugins such as Flip4Mac and Perian?

    Flip4Mac is for WMV and Perian didn't help (but it's a nice thing, thanks for letting me know about it!).

    Fortunately, this made it work:

    Apple QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component

    YAY! :)
