Although MP4's file structure is based on Apple's QuickTime technology, its data embedded in this MPEG-4 Part 14 file, like MPEG-4 Part 10 (known as H.264/MPEG-4 AVC), MPEG-4 Part 2, etc, causes a codec problem which doesn't work well with Apple products. As a result, if you'd like to play MP4 on QuickTime, you'd better convert MP4 to MOV on Mac first because the MOV container is the default format of Mac OS X and performs optimum compatibility with QuickTime.
To solve QuickTime won't play MP4 issue, a strongly recommended solution is to convert all kinds of MP4 videos and movies to QuickTime more compatible MOV formats.

MOV was originally developed by Apple as a file format for its QuickTime Player. So if you want to play the MPEG-4 files with Quicktime, you can convert MPEG-4 files to Quicktime format.
