QT cross-platform problems in my Rev scripts.

Francis,

on any of the quicktime players, press CMD+I or go for the menu "show  
movie info" under the window menu. This will display the codecs used  
for the movie. Try reencoding your movie with a codec that you know  
both machines have such as Mpeg-3.

Cheers
andre
