I'm sorry, I've forgot to tell that I use Perian add-on for QT (http://perian.org/ 
). It extends QT player with support of many famous formats like H264,  
DIVX, etc. So, I don't know exactly, if Perian is used or not when I'm  
playing this movie, but QT definitely doesn't recognize "H263" FOURCC.  
A screen appears, inviting to download an add-on, when I'm opening  
this movie. I'll test this fact on a "pure" Mac OS X though...

As for QT native support for Sorenson Video, AFAIK, it supports "SVQ1"  
and "SVQ3" FOURCC's, and I had such movies somewhere on my PC.  
Unfortunately both Sorenson Video v1 and v3 are completely  
incompatible with the SV subversion, used in FLV/SWF.

Taking into account the fact that Perian package is based on the  
libavcodec, I believe my question about incorrect FOURCC, inserted  
into the file, becomes just more actual, if it is not related to QT  
itself, but to Perian add-on.
