I experienced same problem as discussed a year ago , but don't understand all the lingo used for solutions.
reference to Jo Booth >> When I looked at the name, it had captured it as Untitled-av.mov. These two captures were within 10 minutes of each other and I didn't change any of the settings. I've tried a different tape and same thing happens and I've rebooted the computer .<<
I have many Quick time movies from last 2-3 years saved on external drive. Some of them I can open, some of them come with this -av.mov andwhen I click on it it says "format not recognized". These movies were stored for several years before and were always accesible before. What can I do to be able to open them?
Hi Al, I think I got to the bottom of this. I remembered now that because I could not find Quicktime for my DVD "Carrying forward" I used Wondershare DVD ripper to import part of it from DVD. I am not very experienced with Wondershare and I might have the settings on it in such away that the footage would got broken into small pieces.
Thank you for walking with me through all this. It turns out that it is smaller problem than I was pannicking about.
Thanks - till next time!
