Results 1 to 6 of 6
  1. I have six files, all generated on a Mac, all with the same specifications.
    Files were generated on Final Cut Pro 6 (with some updates to 7.03).
    I remember that last year I had something similar, I beleieve I downgraded my Quicktime to make it work. I've tried Quicktime 6.3 and 7.4.5, but that didn't work.

    Operating on a Windows I need to read these files to convert them to a different file, but none of the programmes / codecs seem to be able to read the file.

    I had Quicktime 7.78, I tried Quicktime Alternative. I have an up-to-date Klite pack. I tried various separate codecs. Everything is still the same.

    Videoinspector shows the files as corrupt, while Mediainfo just spurts the below information. Any ideas as what to do?

    Complete name : H:\
    Format : MPEG-4
    Format profile : QuickTime
    Codec ID : qt 2005.03 (qt )
    File size : 158 GiB

  2. have you tried installing the Avid codec LE ?

    That helped me when i couldn`t open a certain QT file ..although i can`t remember the exact QT file type i had
    might be worth a shot?

  3. Nothing...
    Just thought to add that its an Apple Prores 422 MOV file.

    It works just fine on a Mac BTW, so the files are def OK.

  4. And it wont play in the QT player itself? or VLC Player?

    A long shot..right click file and select properties and look at file permissions,I had this once when the file came from another computer.

  5. Its most likely wrong setups in Final Cut Pro.
    Gone crazy with installing all kinds of codecs... still nothing.

    Will one of the files open with MediaInfo?
