missing file formats - stupid macs
My friend from Portland shot an interview for me (I'm in Chicago) for a documentary I'm working on. He uploaded the file to my server, but there's no file extension. I tried adding various file extensions to see if Vegas could open it (.mp4, .mpg, .mpeg, .mov, .avi, .qt) but none of them worked.
I've written him again to ask which file format he uses, but haven't heard back yet. Does anyone have a mac that would be willing to download the 1 gig interview video file and tell me which format it's in? Because of bandwidth, I'll supply the link in a PM if anyone would be kind enough to take a few minutes to help me out.
In addition, any other file format suggestions would be great too. Hopefully I'll hear from him soon.
