It has to use the same export settings they used for your previous video. Emphazise that.

And who knows, maybe they'll have an idea what the problem might be as well and send you different video versions.
I'll see if they can send me a short black frame vid. In the meantime, I'll get the film inspector info (as soon as I get home, at which point I'm guessing you'll be asleep with the sun being on the other side of the Earth and all). The vid department has no idea what the problem is, although I'm guessing they think it's because they have mighty Macs and I have a lowly PC- the PCs are always the problem.
