Ok, I am importing a .move file directly to stage.  I select import directly to stage then click next.  ***A quick time alert then comes up and says that quick time is missing something and it is not on the quick time server to download it***  the movie can then be imported, but the movie does not show nor does the audio play!  What is the quick time element that I am missing and how do I get it?!?!  Anybody got anything?

does it tell you what's missing?
 if so, do a search on google or summin and see if you can find it, otherwise first thing i'd try is reinstalling/updating quicktime.

It only says that Quicktime does not have the necessary software and it cannot be found on the quicktime server.  I uninstalled and reinstalled QuickTime and got the same result.  ????????  It does not say what is missing!  Any ideas??????

what version of flash are you using?
might have something to do with codecs *shrug* - what i know about videos is minimal.

hmm. i did a project recently with mx pro (using flv's rather than movs though) - and some machines couldn't see the videos while some could - and that was a codec problem.

not sure :-(

if i think of something, I'll let you know.
ps. can you post your file somewhere? without the movs?
have  you tried using another mov to see if its not a corrupt file or something?

I have started with a new file every time...I think it is a codec as well, but it doesn't really throw an error so I can't tell which one...

Thanks for all your help
