i tryed viewing the new iMac ads on apple.com , i get a pop up that says it cant find some software to run it , i tryed uninstalling and updateing but it wouldent work , it runs on my windows PC , i downloaded it and put it to my mac from my network , it is saying now that it cant find the right Compressor/codec , Any help ? , i think its the HD codec , i can get Audio , but no video

Which ones did you download? If it's the HD one.. it should work just fine with QT 7.04 on the Mac.

Well, I'd say that's the problem then. While I can't find anything that specifically says so.. I'm guessing that QT7 is required to view the ads.

you could try buying the QT MPEG component from apple.
this may very well solve your prob. I have QT 6.5.2 and the mpeg comp and have no probs with just about everything.
running OS10.3.8.
