There are some clips from the internet I found that I want to use in a movie I'm making on my mac pro, but when download the zip file my quick time player (my default movie player) says the movie can not be played. Is there softwhere I need to play these clips? My friend has a mac notebook and her computer playes the same clips automaticly. Help?

".zip" files are compressed archives, which contain the true file within. You'll need to decompress it first, using an app like Stuffit Expander (that page is the windows version, so click on the link to the Mac version).
