Quicktime won't play video but Finder will

I have a problem playing a particular quicktime movie in the Quicktime 7 application itself even though the video plays fine when I "preview" it in the Finder under Mac OS X 10.4.2.

I have a quicktime file that will not play the video when I play it in Quicktime 7 player. The audio playback is fine but all I get is a gray screen in the quicktime video window. However, if I preview the in the Finder, by going to "Get Info" on the file, expanding the preview, and playing it there, the video shows up and it plays just fine. Therefore it seems the file is fine and that the underlying quicktime program in OS X sees the video just fine, yet it only displays a gray screen if I use Quicktime player it self to view it. Any help would be appreciated.
