Whether you send it to a MAC or a PC, the receiver must have a media player that will accept the file extension.
The Quicktime program should be able to play .avi files, at least the one on this PC does. I haven't checked the most recent MAC version of Quicktime though. The receiver may need to adjust their "File Type" settings in the "Preferences" section.
For .avi or .wmv, they could also install the Windows Media Player on their MAC. Here's a link:
Hope this helps.
I am trying to send a video I created using a web cam I just bought. The video has an .avi extension or .wmv extension if I save and edit it with the Windows Movie Maker. I am trying to send it to a friend that has a Mac. They can not open the video because Quicktime can't read it. I am not sure what type of file Quicktime requires and even if I did, I do not know how to convert it to the required file type. Is there an easy way to send a video file made with XP machine so it can be opened with Quicktime?
Thanks for your help
