    ok this is sort of a dumb/easy question:
    ok so i made a video on windows live movie maker (on a pc). I want to know if i can watch that video on my school's macbooks. The video is stored on a usb stick. The school laptops run MAC OSX-no parrallels or boot camp. So is the file watchable? thanks

    What is the suffix of the file (.avi, .mp4, .wmv)? You can use VLC Player to play almost any file.

    Btw, there is no need to make more than one thread about the same issue, and there is no need to use a thread title that is not very descriptive.

    Probably. And you can just use VLC, you may need to download the Mac OS X version and bring it with you.

    When you say it plays on your TV, do you mean it works in a standard DVD player like any purchase movie dvd would? If so, it should work on the Mac with no additional software.
