i cant find an answer anywhere! Certain movie clips that i attempt to play are broken up into 1 or 2 minute intervals and i have to drag the playhead back to the start to continue watching from where it was? I know it is the full file because when i open the clips on another computer they play right through? can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance, james.

Could you give a little more detail. What do you mean broken up into intervals, and what software are you using to play them?

Thanks,

Brian

yeh sorry. I am using quicktime, the files are mostly in mpg format and are downloaded clips like skateboarding movies etc. The playtime bar down the bottom says the clips are only 1 or 2 minutes depending on which clip i play and then once it reaches the end, if i drag the playhead back to the start it plays the next 1 or 2 minutes and i have to repeat this to watch the full clip. I know the full file is there because when i play them on my old pc they play right through. Its kind of like someone has put the clips together but my mac can't read them sequentially? I have tried using divx player also but they still only play the short period. haha i've got no idea.

Thanks for your time, James.
