To confirm if it is the high quality setting then do the following with 
QT Player Pro:

1) When the video is opened in QT player select Movie->Get Movie 
2) Select 'Video Track' from the menu in the top left.
3) Select 'Quality' from the menu in the top right.
4) If High Quality is checked then uncheck it.
5) Play the video - does it now look the same as it does in Rev?
