    I made a short edit of some HD footage from a conference last year. The video is 1280 x 720 in MP4 (.m4v). I'd like some people at my office to see it, but they have Windows XP as well as corporate security that prevents them from loading any software (like Quicktime for Windows) onto their machines.

    So I assume the only player is the Windows Media Player in Windows XP. What should I convert my video to so they can play it and see it in HD?

    I use Flip4Mac WMV Studio Pro HD. Costs $179, but I find it invaluable.

    I work in a similarly restrictive environment. Where possible I deliver video via the intranet as MP4s playing through Flash (which is installed on all the PCs) using a JW Player front end.

    Seems like the only game in town

    Thank you for the response. I did some searching and found the the Pro HD version of Flip4Mac appears to be the only way solve the problem.

    I've been working with Adobe Media Encoder, which can take HD video and make useable versions of SD video that may work on Windows. However, nothing else is as widely known and functional as Flip4Mac.

    Thanks again.
