Problem with .mov file not working

I have a .mov file I am trying to play and it just hangs when I try to play it. What techniques/tools can I use to see why it won't work? The link is here: http://confreaks.net/system/assets/data ... 1317864971

Thanks

Re: Problem with .mov file not working

ffmpeg is a good free tool. If you run ffmpeg on your stream, it says

The first thing to check are the video and audio codecs. In this case the audio is PCM which is not supported.
