Wondering if anyone knows what's the deal....
I've got two laptops, one runs XP the other Win 7. In the past they've had no problem playing .mov files. Last week the Win 7 machine hard drive died & I put it in to get replaced. In the meanwhile I was using the XP machine for video editing. All of a sudden it's decided to throw a fit whenever I try to open a .mov file.
I've used VLC, iTunes, Win Media Player, and a slew of other programs- the best I get is a static image with the sound playing.
At my wits' end and ready to throw the thing out the damn window- only I need it to finish this project & I now only have 4 days to do so. Said files were made on a new Fujifilm camera, could the issue be that they are in HD and the laptops are 2010 & earlier??
(Aside from, get a Mac.... yes, when I'm able.....)
