QuickTime player on Mac

Postby Robw03 » Sun Feb 21, 2021 12:57 pm

I apologize if I'm posting to the wrong topic, I'm new at this.
Question, I'm attempting to download some motion elements from the site and I keep getting "the document “vbme0424.mov” could not be openedThe file isn’t compatible with QuickTime Player." . It looks like the file starts out as being zipped but my system appears to unzip it, then I get the compatible error. I'm on macOS Big Sur 11.2.1.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Rob

We purchased our backgrounds as a huge package, and I think a number of those backgrounds are actually a strange hybrid -- an MP4 packaged as an MOV.

Try changing the suffix from .mov to .mp4 and see if that makes it playable. That works on a PC anyway.

What's the name of that file?

I've tried unzipping the file and then changing .mov to .mp4 on a couple of files and that seems to make them work on my PC. But maybe there's something unique about vbme0424.mov.
