Yours works fine, as I expected. The mov's that don't work for me are
filmed with an Apple iPad where they play perfectly but don't on any of my
freebsd boxes here in the office. They are all different versions and
setups. So what I tried to do was to convert them to any other format
with any of the multiple tools that I have. I really don't know where to
look but I'm going to try a few other ideas and if they work I will
definately share in case anyone else has a problem.
