Hi, to clarify #2 below:
The movie I start with is a mpeg.
In the standard Quicktime on Mac OS X 10.4,
I use the export function to create a .mov file.
In the options, I choose the "photo - jpeg" codec.
This setting is also called "compression type".
I make no other changes to the settings.
(If I don't change the codec, some other codec
get's used... but I don't much about codecs.
Why do I use "photo - jpeg"? because this is
the one I found in the properties of Andrew's
water.mov that is included with his demo.)
Windows quicktime may not be the same as
Mac quicktime... so the procedure may differ
in windows.
I hope this helps.

What exactly is that .mov codec (there is no such thing as a default
