Play Small Videos on Snow Leopard

Use Quick Look to Preview Files
Unfortunately, Snow Leopard’s Quick Time Player 10 cannot render videos with resolution lower than 478×359 to their native resolution. Instead, it adjusts them to the 478×359 resolution to fit the size of its playback controls and thus corrupts their quality. There are several ways to deal with this problem.
1. Install Quick Time Player 7 and open a video in it using drag and drop.
2. Play the video in Finder using the Quick Look feature.
3. Drag the video into an empty Mac Mail message.
4. Drag the video into an empty TextEdit document.
