I have a mov-file. I can't play it with MPlayer, vlc, whatever. 
libquicktime sees 0 streams inside as everybody else:

Playing sample.mov.
Cache fill:  6,25% (524288 bytes)    QuickTime/MOV file format detected.
MOV track #0: 1 chunks, 0 samples
Generic track - not completely understood! (id: 0)
MOV: longest streams: A: #-1 (0 samples)  V: #-1 (0 samples)
No stream found.
File sample.mov:
  0 audio tracks.
  0 video tracks.

Apple's QuickTime player plays it fine (if 'fine' can be ever said about 
QuickTime player), and thinks this file is:

I've uploaded a small part of this file (it was 70+M, i dd'ed 512k. It 
is still playable, i've checked) to

Please, tell me, what do I miss.
Maybe some crappy DRM? I've got this file from audio (mixed) CD.

P.S. QuickTime player is SO DAMN AWFUL :((
