I have a MacBook Pro fully updated Leopard and I am getting an error when choosing a .mov file.

"Your chosen source video is not compatible with VideoWrap. Choose another video."

What gives? I specifically chose this program to convert .mov to Flash for embedding video.

Please help.

What codec is the .mov file in? If I recall correctly, Videowrap doesn't work with uncompressed footage, (dont ask me why), but other codecs should be fine.

This'll be due to an incompatible codec. Unfortunately it's not possible to support every single codec. Quicktime .mov files do work, though - try using a different codec.
