I am creating projectors that contain movies from both a camcorder and animated mathematical plots. The Mac that I create them on lists them both as QuickTime movies. And they both play as expected on the Mac in a Director movie.
However, when I play the Director file on a Windows desktop the camcorder movies are listed as "MOV" files and play as expected BUT only a control bar appears for the animated plots which is inactive and the Type of file is listed as "File". The Windows computer does have a QuickTime player.
So what needs to be done so that a Windows computer will play a computer generated QuickTime movie plot the way a Mac does?
(I am in the process of converting MX2004 files to MX11.5.)
When you say "are listed as", you mean by the operating system? Do the file names have a three letter extension, such as ".mov"?
Can you open and play the movies in QuickTime Player on Windows? Perhaps you are using a codec that is not available on the PC. If so, you may need to re-encode them (good choice = the codec that the movies that are working are using).
