Most likely, it is an 8bit YUV uncompressed movie in either YUY2 or UYVY format. The only mac application that I know of to support this is Compression Master (as of 4.0.1 due to my requests). You could use CM to convert it to another format that you can work with, or you can get the client to provide you with an RGB or v210 (10bit) AVI.
