I am trying to play the videos on this site: http://ipa.group.shef.ac.uk/symbols.php But the screen is just black. When I try to open them in Movie Player it buffers from 0%-100% seven or eight times and then just sits there. I am able to play other mov files just fine and these videos work on my mac. Do these work for anyone else? Does anyone have suggestions to fix the issue?
-= EDIT =- I tried playing the file in VLC with logging enabled and this is what I got:
