Running Snow Leopard
Have Quick Time 7 installed

Went to Dailymotion and downloaded a video to the hard drive in to the Downloads section.
When I went to open it with QT 7 I get the following message:
"This movie can not be opened"
"The file is not a movie file"

All suggestions appreciated.
Many Thanks.

1. Ue Google it is your friend.

2. You would have then found this:-

Free FLV Player for Mac and PC

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Why are people not recommending Perian any longer? I don't waste time with other players and just Quicktime with perian. MOST here used to.

I am not 100% sure...but I don't think it is being developed or supported any longer. Some of the stuff I read in Google didn't mention any OSX's since OS 10.6. I hope I am wrong. It is still available for download.

Production has ceased but the current version works perfectly as always in 10.8.4.

The Perian folks recommend this as a player.

NicePlayer-0.97.9-lion.zip - niceplayer - NicePlayer Lion Preview - fullscreen, borderless multi-engine player - Google Project Hosting

I tried it and it works well.
