I have quicktime player and I can't see the movie (I can only hear the sound) that has vlc mov codec and saved in quicktime program

I strongly recommend using VLC for watching any type of video. Programs like Quicktime player, windows media player etc often need codecs to play certain video types and formats like avi, flv etc. As for quicktime player, you propably need to download the proper codec for your movie format type
tip

Can not play all the file

I have downloaded a couple of video clips from my new Sony Camera and WinDVD4 will not play them. The files are in MPEG-4 format. Any advice, solutions etc???

You can play them in Apple's itune or quicktime media player. Mpeg4 needs a special codec (decoder) that doesnt come with WinDVD4.

How do I play MPEG recordings?

Using Windows Media Player You need Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher and Sharp G.726 Audio Codec in order to play MPEG4 files from the Memory Stick on your PC. If you are not currently using Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher. Important: The Sharp G.726 Audio Codec needed to play MPEG4 files is no longer signed by Microsoft. If Sharp G.726 Audio Codec is not properly installed on your PC, it will not play MPEG4 Audio. Using DivX® You can also download a free DivX® Player and codec to play your MPEG and other video format files. DivX® for Windows is a free codec built to play every version of DivX content. The DivX codec also plugs into your existing video software so you can view and create high-quality DivX videos at a fraction of the original size. The DivX codec also adds DivX video playback support to most popular media players.

MPEG4

MPEG-4 is a graphics and video compression algorithm standard that is based on MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and Apple QuickTime technology. Wavelet-based MPEG-4 files are smaller than JPEG or QuickTime files, so they are designed to transmit video and images over a narrower bandwidth and can mix video with text, graphics and 2-D and 3-D animation layers.
