    IV50 isn't happening on OS X.

    The last time I had to run a video I could still use Classic.

    weird I wonder why. Is there a way I can convert it to another video codec instead of lv50 and it will still work?

    I've tried to upload IV50 files to online conversion services as well.

    Indeo Version 5 isn't supported.

    alright. Thanks for the help dude.

    I may attempt to try using youtube to convert it and I bet it will stream it online then I can rip it from youtube and i will be able to download it.
