... figuring out how to play it / convert it / otherwise make it usable.

First things first. I am not a pirate ... at least not normally. I'm trying to watch a segment from the Dr. Oz show which aired on May 12, 2011 entitled "The Four Things Drug Companies Don't Want You To Know." Well, I guess they REALLY don't want you to know these things because the segment got yanked off of Dr. Oz's site after being up for only a few hours.

Anyway, I found where someone had uploaded the segment, supposedly as an .mp4 file and I downloaded it, but my Mac says it's not a video file. It has a Quicktime icon and an .mp4 extension.

I would like to determine if this file is what it says it is and figure out how to use it. Any help in accomplishing this would be sincerely appreciated.
QUOTE Thanks
