Unable to play .MOV files on Laptop running Windows Vista
Posted on 2007-10-10
My g/f recently recorded some videos using her digital camera. I uploaded the videos from the camera to her computer, which is running Windows Vista, but I can't get the videos to play. They recorded in the .MOV format, but whenever I try to play the video, whether I use Quicktime, ITunes, or Windows Media Player, i get an error that says X program has stopped working, and Windows will close the program and notify me if a solution is available. Is this one of the many bugs inherent with the new Windows Vista OS? Is there a work-around to it that I could try in order to get the videos to play properly? I'm still running Windows XP on my personal computer, and don't know anything about Vista at this point.
Thanks for the help.
