But the mov file plays in other packages so I must have the codec
somewhere on my computer.  Why can't MATLAB find it?

Is there anyway of finding out the name or publisher of the codec from
the mov file?  Simply saying that it can't decode the file or it
doesn't have the codec is not really helpful - you'd need to know what
is required so you can go and get it.
