Hi Guys,

When i export a movie in final cut pro 7 using the HDV 1080P30 codec in the .mov format I can play the movie without nay issues on my macbook pro.
I also uploaded a test video on Vimeo and Motionbox and I can also see that on the web.

But when i try to play the same movie on my pc.. i am unable to..
I tried VLC player, media player clasic and quick time, it doesnt play at all.

In VLC i can hear the audio but not the video.. do u have any ideas?

QUOTE Thanks

The only HDV codec I came across for Windows is extremely expensive - it'd be a better option to use Compressor and transcode the video into either an MP4 or H.264 .mov file.
