I have a .mov video to watch and get a format not supported error signal. Won't open in iMovie or Final Cut either.

    Hi,

     

    Do you have Quicktime 7 Player.

    You can install this (it gets placed in Utilities rather than Applications and does play some older format Quicktime Files

    I have 10.0. This is an edited video made this month by a student using Final Cut. The error says 'The document “Festival of Lights.mov” could not be opened. The movie is not in a format that QuickTime Player understands.'

    Hi,

     

    I am presuming that Final Cut Pro has many more Export or Save variations than Quicktime 10 has.

     

    I do have .mov files in iTunes that will not sync to my iPad or iPhone as the version on there cannot play them yet Quicktime Player does.

     

    I also find the Inspector a lot more informative.
