My «Bad Apple» video took up 10 megabytes for 3 minutes of quite low resolution (circa 240x240) video. I doubt we could anyhow fit a whole one hour long movie in a memory card readable by the Newton that it wouldn’t refuse to load or hang due to running out of memory either.

Thanks for the reminder of these limitations. It's been a while since I played with Movie Convertor (or even Lee Moon's original Newton Movie Player).

I had completely forgotten that Brad Tober published his source code for Newton Movie Player 2.0 on GitHub a couple of years ago.
