I have a Mac and use Final Cut Pro with Compressor 4.1 to generate movies. The final format is a .mov file. Is this file type compatible with DW CC? If so, how do I insert it into the DW CC file or should I be using a different video file format?
.mov won't work unless your target audience has QuickTime player & required QT plugins.
For best cross browser results, use HTML5 <video> with these 3 file types:
<!doctype html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>HTML5 with Video</title> <!--[if lt IE 9]> <script src="http://html5shiv.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js"></script> <![endif]--> </head> <body> <!--begin video--> <video controls> <source src="yourvideo.mp4" type="video/mp4"> <source src="yourvideo.webm" type="video/webm"> <source src="yourvideo.ogv" type="video/ogg"> NOTE: If you see this, you're using an outdated browser that doesn't support this type of video. <a href="alternate.html">Click here for an alternative</a> </video> <!--end video--> </body> </html>
I don't believe Final Cut Pro can convert your quicktime file to all the required web formats (yes, you need all three!).
An easy fix is to use Miro Converter to do the job for you in one go:
A quick helpful tool to generate the code you need can be found here:

OK - all is working fine except one thing. I want the last slide on the move to remain on the screen. In all browsers the movie goes to black. In Final Cut, the movie stops exactly where I want it to. Anything I can do in the code to make sure the last movie frame remains on screen as a still frame?.....Thanks......Art
You simply need to create a still image and add it to the poster attribute in HTML5 player controls.
