You probably have MoviePlayer. When you save a movie there, the dialogue
box has three options: save normally, make movie self-contained, and
playable on non-Apple computers.
The first one saves a reference copy that takes up hardly any file space.
This is good on your computer only.
The second one saves a full copy any other Mac can play.
The third does exactly what it says it does. Specifically it takes out
any resource forks in the file. PCs can't handle them.

After conversion just start them like ordinary movies and listen.
Quickmovie alows change/edit instruments (if it is not a GM file you
always have default instruments -piano/drums)
Its quite easy!
