They say the reason MATLAB can't support mov format videos is "because
the Direct Show interface on Windows does not support reading this
file format."  Yes, I know Apple Quicktime has figured out how to show
mov videos on the Windows platform, but MATLAB has not.  So I guess
we're stuck converting to avi, wmv, asf, or mpg format.
