Can you be more specific about what happened?  Error message?  Simply not opening the file?  etc?

Ok, I have discovered that part of the problemi is the software needed to run the vidoe is not loaded.  That settles that. I think yoursuggestion woudl have worked, but they have no video software loaded at all on any of the machines.
