I have several MOV files I am trying to view. I think they may be corrupt or something. ultimately i want to convert them to another file type. I need some help in finding something that will help me fix them. I am receiving the following error messages.
Windows media Error message:
“Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.”
Quicktime error message:
“Error-2048: Couldn’t open the file 393_0344.MOV because it is not a file that QuickTime understands.”
I think it may be a codec issue. I did some research and found something called VLC. Before I download anything … are there any other ideas you may have. I don't like to install things that will add adware stuff.
Thank you so much for your help.
