QT7 H.264 Plays On Macs Doesnt Play on some PC's

My videos on my website play on all Macs but do not play on all PC's. All the videos were encoded with H.264 on a Mac. Anybody know of a solution?

If they aren't using QT7 that might be the problem, it would also depend on the quality of the H.264, because PCs require faster processors to play them then macs do.

hope this helps

HI

I could be wrong here but having been doing a similar thing recently. The codec h.264 will only play on quicktime 7 I beleive. What I did and its really easy is buy flip4mac and turn the quicktimes into wmv files. These will be compatible with pcs. If pc users download quicktime 7 there seems to be some incompatability problems with video for windows. So by adding one of each will hopefully cover you for most computers.

you can have a look to see what I've done if you like

Thanks for the replies guys. I've had people with QT7 tell me it crashes their browser. That might be a processor problem huh? In IE it just doens't load. I was hoping to not make 2 versions.. sucks...
