Could a vista user check this QT?

Several clients lately have not been able to view my quicktime clips, and I've had to encode flash versions. Is there some trick with encoding QT for Vista?

I know this is a really stupid question, but do your clients have the appropriate version of QT installed on their Vista systems (if at all)?

I send clients a QT link and a note saying "QT is best quality - if it doesn't work for you let me know". Last year maybe a third to half wanted another version - this year so far its 100%. At the size/bitrate setting I aim for QT has a definite edge - maybe I'll try tweaking my flv encode settings.

thanks Jason

If, for some reason, the user's version of QuickTime is earlier than yours, there is a distinct possibility they may not be able to view your program. I always note the version I was using when I create a QT program as well as provide a link to Apple for upgrades.
