    Okay, so I have a movie on my PC in AVI format. It plays fine, no problems. When I put it on my USB, then open it on my Macbook, it only plays about the first 20 seconds. It shows that as being the whole video. I have done this plenty of times before, and never had a problem. Any advice. Thank you.

    What are you using to play it with. If you aren't using VLC, try that.

    If you are, then grab Perian and try playing it in quicktime.

    I just open it with Quicktime. I also tried to open it in iMovie, as I wanted to use it for something in there. Did it with plenty of other movies, this one is just giving me problems.

    The file might be corrupt, and Windows just ignores the error.

    Adding to what the above poster said ... If you have tried QuickTime already, then try VLC.

    Video Lan Client. Google it.

    I'd give you a link, but I'm on my iPod.
