How to use the QuickTime converter

Edited by Ben Jacklin

The word “QuickTime” has two meanings in the context of computing. It’s the name of the default Mac video player and another name for the MOV format, which was actually developed to be used with the QuickTime player.

Let’s start with the QuickTime format. There are a few problems you may encounter using this format.

Your media player or device doesn’t support QuickTime

As QuickTime is designed for Apple devices, some players and devices may have issues running QuickTime files. Converting videos to MP4 can help you resolve this problem.

A video plays without showing the picture

This distortion may occur because of a video codec issue. Movavi Video Converter lets you choose a different codec for your file and enjoy watching the video properly.

You can't upload a video to the Internet

Some web services prevent you from uploading videos in a format other than MP4. So, if you want your IGTV subscribers to see your latest video, you’d better fix the format in an app.

Now let’s discuss QuickTime Player. Natively, it supports only a few video formats: 3G2, 3GP, DV, MOV, and various MPEG options, including MP4. But what if you want, for example, to play Windows Media Video files in QuickTime? Fortunately, there is a simple solution: just download Movavi Video Converter, a convenient video conversion application for Windows or Mac, and change the format of your WMV videos to QuickTime. Also, you can just as easily convert QuickTime movies to any other video format using the same software. See how easy it is with this step-by-step guide.

Step 1. Download the QuickTime Converter

Download and run the program. Follow the on-screen directions to install the Movavi software.

Step 2. Add videos to the program

Click Add Media, then choose Add Video, and select the files you want to convert to the QuickTime format. If you want to work with video on a DVD, you’ll need to choose Add DVD and then click Open DVD instead. You can add files in just about any input format – Movavi Video Converter supports over 180 video and audio formats. For example, you can convert WMV and AVI to QuickTime, or convert QuickTime to MP4, AVI, and other, less common, alternatives. Whichever file format you want to work with, the Movavi software will do the job perfectly.

Step 3. Select an output preset

To convert your video to the QuickTime format, go to Video above the presets ribbon and find the MOV group. Click to expand it and select the preset that best suits your needs. If you need to convert QuickTime to MP4, AVI, or another format, simply look for the appropriate preset group on the list.

Step 4. Convert your videos

By default, Movavi Video Converter will save your newly created QuickTime movies to the Movavi Library directory, but you can choose a different folder by clicking the Save to button.
