Attaching QuickTime (.mov) Files

Hey again Roy...


I just created a couple of options within trial notes to see what was going on. I am using premium just incase there are compatibility problems. 


It really depends on what you want to do with the movie. From the application (OSX Version), I can attach a simple .mov file and play it in the built in player (by clicking the eye icon on the file). The Movie also works from presentation mode on the note... You may just need to click on the video file to get the option to play it, but it does load up in a nice player during the presentation.


On my iPad Mini, I can load the note with a sample .mov file (that I got from apples website of trial videos). I am then asked "Tap to Download" the movie on my iPad. When I do that, the movie starts to download and plays almost immediately after completion. I have the trial from Apple and your .mov on the same note which you can find here. The apple note plays just fine, but the one you sent seems odd so I tried them on my iPad, iPhone, MacBook Pro and iMac. The one you sent is really small and only plays for a couple of seconds... could it be something with your video file?


FYI: We have been playing around with embedding iframes of youtube videos within postach.io blogs, and that seems to be its own can of worms... (the code is on that same note, which is why I mention it...)

MOV file extension is used by the QuickTime-wrapped files. Though MOV files are quite often found in the web, to play them on Windows computer (Windows 8), one has to install an extra component or turn to other players since Windows's default programs like Windows Media Player, Windows Movie Maker, etc. don't accept MOV.

Plus, MOV is a container format and can contain video, animation, graphics, 3D and virtual reality (VR) content or text (for subtitles, for example), so it would be a bit hard for media players, video editing programs like FCP, iMovie, Adobe Premiere to read and process it- it would be better to change MOV format.

Other occasions may be that you need to convert MOV files so as to play them on your Android devices, game consoles, etc that can't recognize MOV.


in order to play quicktime mov files on iphone or ipad , Brorsoft MOV Converter for Mac is a powerful and easy-to-use tool to convert QuickTime MOV to various popular video formats on Mac OS X(El Capitan included)
