With Desk Doctor (www.einspine.com) the neurologist I worked with  
converted
the H264 files to WMV files using flip4mac. I think it might be  
called 'Compressor'.

Over 100 videos, nothing very long , with backgrounds added by using  
blue screen.

We went with WMV for Windows and H264 for OS X. Makes for more work  
in the long
run but each project requires individual approaches. Richard's most  
excellent medical
app seems to have stringent admin requirements so his approach (WMVs  
& flip4mac)
makes lots of sense to me.

My problem has been that Rev 8.1 doesn't seem to like WMVs so the app  
is STUCK at
Rev 2.6. Rev 2.9 FIXES the playing of WMV via player objects.

I HOPE 2.9 ARRIVES SOON  ;-)
