Thanks for the response. I downloaded perian yesterday, didn't help with what i assumed was a codec h.264 issue. definately have the right mp4 files from the server. they play flawlessly on my pc. thinking it might be a pcc g4 lack-of-processor issue now.
Trevor and Ian are taking care of it actually and it sounds like they're whipping up something amazing. Keep rockin at what you're doing. Nice to see you're so involved. Wish I had more time for this myself but I try to fit it in where I can. See you at a Foley party hopefully.
