    Hello

    I have a .mpg file that shows the Quicktime icon, but when I try to watch it I get this error.
    ==================
    The Document ********.mpg could not be opened. The movie is not in a format that QuickTime understands.

    You may need to install additional software to open this type of file.
    ==================
