Imported Video Clip Won't Play

Hi Roger,

This could have to do with the fact that your movie contents could be 
saved as a multiplexed track (video and sound at once). If so, you will 
need to use a demux utility to split the multiplexed track as two 
separate new tracks, the first one for the video and the second for the 
sound. Else, if the video codec is "avi", you will need to export the 
tracks to get able to manipulate video and sound tracks from inside the 
QT tools, including the Rev's QT ones.

Best, Pierre
