Hi, my daughter make home movie for the first time for her school using imovie, she add music etc.. now we want to watch it in a windows pc because at school they have only windows , so we transfer the .mov file then try to open with quicktime, vlc player and windows media player but we cant.
With quicktime it said that it can not open it said;
the movie file "IMGP0922.dv" can not be found, Without this file, the movie can not play properly" and it gives the option to cancel or search, so we copy those .dv files and put them together in a folder with the .mov file and now we choose search and we locate the file but then it ask for another .dv file then it ask for mp3 files and it goes like asking for files until it just freezes my win pc.
What did she do wrong?, how come it is not just a .mov file instead of a .mov file + few .dv files and .mp3 files? and what she can do?
Thanks

In iMovie, choose File-->Export..., select "QuickTime", choose "Expert Settings". Click the "Share" button. Choose "Movie to QuickTime Movie" from the Export popup menu, and choose an appropriate setting from the Use popup menu. Click the "Options" button if you want to fine-tune the settings, otherwise just give it a filename and choose a location to save it and click the "Save" button.

This will create a normal Quicktime .mov movie file which is completely self-contained.

Hope that helps.

It's not really complicated. I haven't used iMovie in years and have never exported as a QuickTime movie and it took me all of 2 minutes to figure it out just by browsing through the options. That's the beauty of the Mac, you can just figure stuff out by playing around with it.
