I sent someone a video from skyDrive and they couldn't open it and I don't know why. I sent it to myself and to another person and we both could open it. So I wonder what they could be missing?

Go here for the Skydrive Help Center... http://explore.live....ive-help-center

Here are some requirements,,, your operating system must be Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2), Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, or Microsoft Windows 2000 with Service Pack 3, and your Internet browser must be Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 or a later version.

Also, Microsoft Silverlight makes things easier, but it looks as if its not absolutely required.

Video formats are notoriously complicated, and even files with the same extension often won't play on the same devices. See Video Formats Explained for details.
