Quicktime movies to WMP

What do I need to do to get or convert my .mov vids to be able to play in Windows Media Player or to edit in the movie maker?

I've tried opening them up in wmp but they won't play it says something like 'codec required'.

Do you do 'import' movie in movie maker rather than 'open'?

I had trouble but I found that if I chose import, it worked.

Yeah I tried importing into movie maker and it still says that it doesn't support that file type. It's weird cos it used to work without a problem.

I just downloaded the divx thing so will see what that's all about. Thanks Beav & Sicy.

try using a different codec..
I convert all my videos using Super, and the codec I use is Divx, which is automatically installed on every computer

That definately converts to MPEG4/MP4/what iPods and Quicktime plays, It should, If I remember rightly do what you want to do Sicy. I reccomend it either way, its handy to get things on your Ipod, films included.

It just doesn't recognize .mov Sicy, but just type the filename and add .mov to the end and SUPER will convert it

...you dont need one.

Mpeg4/mp4 files are iPod video files and movie files. Its just what iPods use. I just know quicktime plays them.
