How to convert a problematic video file?

    I have a video file on my Uni MacBook (Leopard) I need to convert in
    order to compress. Using Get Info the Kind says "Quick Time Movie," and
    the Codec says "Windows Media Audio 9 Standard, Windows Media Video 9
    Standard.

    There doesn't appear to be any extension, though I've tried adding some
    (.mov, .wmv) with no success.

    iMovie won't recognize the file to import. I've tried three conversion
    apps also (iSquint, FLVCrunch, and something else I trashed) and none
    will deal with it. VLC will not open it: "main: no suitable decoder
    module for fourcc `WMV3'. VLC probably does not support this sound or
    video format."

    QT Player plays it fine on my Mac; I have Flip4mac installed.

    Any ideas on what else I could try?

    Thanks,
    Rog
