    I currently work for a shop that creates(sometimes video intensive) powerpoints in OS X, but we want to be able to load our powerpoint presentations in Windows as we may be migrating at least the powerpoint portion of what we do to said platform. However, when I try to export one of the powerpoint slides we create, I get the following instead of the video:

    "Quicktime and a YUV420 codec decompressor are needed to see this picture"

    Now I installed quicktime, but would upgrading to pro get me the required codec?

    4:2:0 decoder

    QuicTime doesn't do 4:2:0 on its own. I found a decoder (free) as a QT component for my final year project. It worked great - but it is in the deepest darkest depths of the internet. I'll try find it

    Thanks, I tried downloading that, but despite the fact that I have the latest version of Quicktime for windows(7.1.5) it claims I need to have Quicktime 4.1.5 or later to install!
