Given the age of the program, the MOVs were probably encoded using one of the Sorensen codecs. FFmpeg will be able to convert them into something suitable for playback on modern PCs.

Gave it a go using the format factory with MP4 and recreating as .mov files, still nothing. I thing your right SYNACK about the embedded player, one of the software requirements is IE so im guessing it may use IE with the quickcrime embedded player, it may be an IE issue even...

Would it be possible to play one of the videos in VLC and then go to the Tools menu » Media Information » Codec tab and post a screenshot of this?

Codec for .mov files
I have played around abit more and re-installing both the client side and servers copy of the CD, I also removed the old V4 of QuickCrime & K-lite codec before getting Ccleaner to clear out the reg and reinstalled K-lite. The videos would then play the Audio only when running via chem2000. I have also tryed using the new version of QuickCrime and now I get a nice Q?

Sorted, looks like quicktime didn't support using a mapped drive in the Chemistry sets .ini, when using a UNC path it works! Is there an easier way to replace the .ini on all our science lab computers rather then going around by hand? Im guessing scripting?

Updating INI files via GPP is really easy, if that's an option on your network?

If you should ever want to convert your Chemistry Set videos, try the following batch file along with the latest static build of ffmpeg.exe from here.
for %%a in (*.mov) do "%SCRIPTDIR%\ffmpeg.exe" -i "%%a" -c:v libx264 -b:v 400k -c:a copy "%%~na.mp4"
