    Help, I'm desperate for a solution. I have a quicktime file that has been
    created on a mac with the settings listed at the end of this message. I am
    trying to play and further process the file on a pc and get a error-2048
    "not a movie file". The file has been copied directly from a dvd that will
    play fine on a mac as well.

    Same problem. 3 .mov files .Mov files before & after play. but these won't open in Windows, Real, Nero, and a couple of others I downloaded to try. I changed file ext, and back again, neither works. Fresh out of the camera to the file.
    This is ridiculous, and don't bother looking for an answer at Quicktime. You won't get one.

Quicktime


Hi,

You can try the following,

1) Navigate to library, it will be in your main drive.
2) Remove all files from the QuickTime*.PKG, where "*" is your version number. This tells you that those packages are not installed.
3) Click on the "download Quicktime" link. DO NOT USE THE AUTOMATIC UPDATE UTILITY. Download QuickTimeInstallerX.dmg. Double click this file (probably on your desktop) and then invoke the installer by double clicking QuickTime701.pkg.

4) Restart the computer.

Regards,
Shrey

Cannot view the movies I made on my camera and downloaded to my Vista PC


I assume you can view them in you camera, right? If not, the following solution will not help.

The .MOV Apple QuickTime format Panasonic uses for its camera movie clips cause problem on with viewing, as seen from several other problem posts here and the net.

Some computer use a Win 32Bit operating system, other better ones use a Win 64. It is hard to believe QuickTime would let you load a 64bit version into a 32bit OS, or vice versa. But who knows. Rather double clicking on te file name itself, open QuickTime, then go to File Open and Browse to the file and select it that was. If this doesn't work, go to QuickTime website and try their User Forums first to ask a question or find a thread talking about movie files not playing. Else, CONTACT website and ask question. Post any solution here for readers.
