i have made a video on imovie, and the video works on my mac with quicktime using .mov or .avi
however i sent this video to my friend and it did not work on their PC quicktime..and i cannot add it to any video hosting sites like photobucket, youtube or myspace as it says video server error and such like.
can anyone tell me how to make the video work? do i need to change the format?

thanks

The latest version of QuickTime allows you to Export the movie to Windows Media. You could try that.

lau523, I forgot I have QT Pro ... that WM option is only available to Pro users.

I will find a solution for you if you'll bear with me ...

When you burnt the movie to disc did you do it via iDVD?

What's the filesize of the movie and can I suggest your friend drags it from the disc to their hard drive and then try to watch it by double-clicking on the file.

When you say in your 1st post that you made a movie in iMovie .... could you provide a few more specifics ..... exactly what can you tell me about this movie ... did you import it into iMovie or create it in iMove using your iSight camera if you have one? If you imported it into iMovie, then how did you create this movie.

Can you try sending the movie attached to an email? If it's only a few mbs it shouldn't take too long to send. It could be a MSN file transfer prob.
