You will have to "flatten" the movie into one file. This can be done very 
easily with an app called FlattenMooV, found on the info-mac archives. 
For your nearest link, try ftp.sunet.se.

The file won't display correctly (or more accurately, not at all) when 
transferred in it's present state. You *have* to flatten it first. Then I 
guess you should be able to view it using any viewer on the Mac and using 
a QT compatible viewer on the PC.
