    Corrupted file, probably. Nice username, by the way... and it's frowned upon to bump a topic so soon after posting it.

    I judge you when you use poor grammar.

    I just can't think of any reason why members of a Mac enthusiast's forum wouldn't jump all over a question posted by someone with a username like "ihatemac".
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Quite - you can almost see the stream of people not answering as they see the name.

    I just noticed that the OP said they were using movies from a mobile phone - I would be amazed if the phone is producing proper .MOV files that QuickTime can handle. I've rarely had any luck with mobile phones and media - that's why I just use them for making phone calls. You're better off using a camera.
