Neither am I, Carl, so we're in the same boat. Anyway, the video sample 
description in that rotating earth file contains a 1-bit palette 
consisting of two bluish colors. In QuickTime in Windows or Mac they 
will render correctly, but without this patch, they (and all other 1-bit 
files with a palette) will be displayed in black & white.
