HELP! iMac G3 won't recognize video files


Recommended Posts

I am borrowing an iMac G3 with Mac OS 9.1 and Quicktime Player Version 5.0.2 for a film. I need the computer to play a video file that I created in the film. When I burn a CD with the video file on it, the G3 will show the JPEG image files on the CD, but the video files don't show up at all! I've tried several different formats/codecs like MOV, MP4, h264, and AVI, but none of them show up at all.

 

I've also tried several other unsuccessful methods of transferring the video file to the G3. I can't get a flash drive to mount even when formatting it to several different formats, I can't figure out how to connect the G3 to the internet to email/download the file, and I can't figure out how to transfer the file directly via a ethernet cable connected to my modern iMac.

 

Help?

 

Thanks,

Adam
