I might have an old PPC machine I could resurrect. I'll try tomorrow.  
No promises, though, because it hasn't been used in years.

Now, for some testing on a more modern machine, I tried to run this  

(Actually, it appears to happen with every video I've fed to it; I'm  
just providing a reference.)

I got a message that said
Failed: An invalid sample description was found in the movie (-2041)

I've been able to learn two things:
1. If I turn off encoding the sound, it works.
2. This also happens with version 0.1.8 as well, so it's not new to  
this version.

I'm doing this with Mac OS X 10.5.7 and QuiickTime Pro 7.6.0 & all  
updates applied.
