Error message: NTSC decompressor needed to see this picture


Your presentation created on a Mac includes movies. Everything works fine when you play it on Macs but on PCs you see a message about "NSC decompressor needed".


From Mac Office MVP Jim Gordon:

"When you export the QuickTime file to AVI in QuickTime click the Options button. Uncheck the setting that causes QuickTime to compress audio. If this is checked when you export to AVI in QuickTime Pro, the resulting file won't play in Windows." "For some reason during an update that checkbox got turned on by default. I'm not sure whether or not it was deliberate to turn that on, but turn compression off and everything will be fine."
