    Are you sure that you downloaded the iPod version? The iPod version is an mp4 file and should play in QuickTime without any problems. What version of QuickTime do you have? If the file is not an mp4 then you downloaded the version that requires the google player.

    Worked fine for me. Try getting it again and then saving it and opening it from Finder.
