I am trouble opening a Quicktime service announcement in mpeg. It states QT doesn't understand it (-2048)

There are many different MPEG standards. You might try another viewer, like VLC available here.

Can you point us to the file so others can try it?

Looks like a standard Quicktime file. Clicking on the link opens it in Safari, but it takes a couple of minutes to completely load. File size is 118 MB. Are you having trouble with any other QT files? You may have a corrupt plist file.

I didn't have any problem either. What version of QuickTime are you running? What version of OS? What type of Internet connection do you have?

No problem with the downloaded file here. Which browser are you using? FWIW, I used Safari, and I have it set to just download and not uncompress, decode, don't do anything, leave it alone for me to handle. (I don't trust any file that I download.) If your browser is trying to decode it, it's possible that it's messing it up somehow, maybe changing or dropping the extender.

Uncheck "Open Safe Files" and then try downloading again. Then double-click to see if it will run.
