Sharing Videos Mac to PC (urgent)


Hello all, this is a somewhat urgent request as it involves my wedding videos. The person who recorded my wedding did so through a Mac and has copied these movies onto my external HDD (Seagate USB 3.0 1 TB).

The movies are not playing on my PC now, just the audio is all.

I know it has something to do with a certain Apple codec, but is there a way, whether it is free or costs a little money, to be able to either convert or watch these movies on my PC (Windows 7)?

Thanks!

The person who recorded your wedding needs to learn to use a more common codec, Win7 has quite a few.

Use VLC or CCCP/MPC.

Well you should call him and remind him he's an idiot.

Something VLC can't play... that's quite an accomplishment.

Never heard of that before. Ask the guy who filmed to convert it on HIS mac, since windows cannot convert this format.

So the file format is a .mov video with an Apple codec of icod.

I've tried everything under the sun and it seems near impossible.

Any other suggestions?

The player and the codecs are standalone and can be dumped into the same folder. Not sure if it will play it though. Worth a shot. Apple formats are as absurd as window ones (wmv).
