Quicktime .mov files will not play

Customer needs to view several .mov files.  I downloaded the current Quicktime app.  When they click on the link--which ends in .mov--Quicktime does start up, but all we ever see is the progress bar at the bottom.  No video, no audio, and no errors.  I have tried this on their Win 8.1 system as well as my Win7 system, using IE, Firefox, and Chrome.

Any ideas or suggestions will be appreciated.  TIA

I can't help you with QuickTime, but if you're willing to consider a different product, VLC is excellent (free!) software that I've been using for many years:

It has all of the codecs built in. It supports MOV and just about all audio and video file formats. It runs on W7 and W8/8.1. Regards, Joe
