Quicktime movie not recognizable?


I used to play the same quicktime movie and it worked. But months later, I played it again from the same computer, the message given to me was the quicktime movie is not recognizable. Someone told me I need to change the codec.

Could someone please tell me what could have possibly happened and how to troubleshoot it?


Use Divx player. It’s one of the best movie players out there, and it’s free(just google it). If you don’t want to do that, try updating your Quicktime player. I’ve had this same problem a few weeks before.

Update (or uninstall/reinstall) your Quicktime player or get Quicktime Alternative for MPC.

It’s also possible the file is corrupt or the disc the file is on is damaged.
