I have a ifriend who recorded a TV program on his iapple icomputer I asked if he could put the program on a USB memory so I could run it on my windows 7, “he said it will not work because he has a icomputer and I dont,” I am thinking “get out of the igroove imate some files like movie files can run on any operating system if the operating system engineers have done their bit to market their operating system, and the movie file format is not “copy right” to stop it been used by unwanted users.”

I would assume you could at least download a program that would run the file.

It's probably more to do with the usual apple user ihaventacluehow syndrome.;)

It should work fine on a PC unless there's some DRM on the file.

You might need to download a codec to play it though - depending on your media player.

Apple will record in MP4 container. Windows Vista Home Premium and above versions play MP4 natively. Worst case scenario, you will have to install LAVFilters (http://code.google.com/p/lavfilters/). Never install a codec if you will only be watching videos, it is only for encoding. All you need is Directshow filters and LAVFilters is open source and crapware free.

It would probably help if you posted some actual information about the file. Unless you don't want the problem solved...

OK maybe the question got buried in the start posting, the question was "does apple have any special movie type file format that can not be read and played by any other operating systems"

I am sorry if you might have a operating system that might not be the same as mine, I think if you want that system go for it, I dont think any lessor of you because you choose your one, who am I to dictate what system you use? This joker every times he talks about Microsoft he says how confusing it is to use, (how come then million of people all over the world can handle it) and in all honesty if he took down some of the negative barriers he has, he might just realize it is easy to get a grip with, even if you still do not like to have it.

I mean if your friend isnt very computer literate its not that supprising that he assumes a file on his computer wont work on a system that he knows to be so different. I know many windows users that ive talked to that dont think some of their files will work on macs. Im not sure its so much of an apple smuggness thing that you believe it to be.

And on the note of people who use macs saying that windows is confusing, they are somewhat correct. In windows the control pannel is like a maze that only through time and experience can you find what you actually want, on macs its broken into alot more categories which is honestly a much more effective way of doing it. The point is macs are designed to create a good working enviroment, so in order to do that they make the system easy to use. Windows is designed for everything and thus is not as refined as osx but it is more of an all rounder.
