[Collin Alexander] "Dennis' solution is great. I didn't know you could change the properties in Quicktime. That's exactly what I needed to do. I just change the dimensions from 720 x 480 to 640 x 480, and it plays right on my Virtual VTR. "

Dennis' method will work Collin, but that's really not the way to do it properly. Instead, try the following:

1. Open your 720x480 mov file in Quicktime Player:
2. Go to Window>>Show Movie Properties
3. Click on the line with the name of the .mov file.
4. Check the "Conform aperture to:" box
5. Change the dropdown menu to "Production"
6. Go to File>>Save

This make your file display properly in QT Player without changing the pixel dimensions.
