Hello, I used Janek’s directions and am still having issues. My friend sent me a .mov file (5MB) from her Mac, I use a PC.

The quality isn’t great, playback is choppy, frame rate is fast, and really weirdly & annoyingly, VLC opens multiple windows, one after the other which play over each other. There are also couple final frames missing.

I set VLC to only one instance running, adjusted the frame rate (in video output), and rebooted. Nothing seems to help the weird multiple windows or choppiness issue.

Help? if you have any other suggestions...?

Thank you very much,
T. Chang reply

I need to keep using quicktime to view HD trailers. I get the 2048 quicktime error: .qtl not a file that quicktime understands. I can not use another viewer. Why hasn’t this problem been solved...WHAT IS THIS? Tried uninstalling quicktime and reinstalling and setting file and MIME options to be default for quicktime to view video and MPEG...Help! reply

im an intel mac user and i had the same problem with the big blue Q turning up where the video should be, so i spent sometime lookin for answers and this one worked for me. first go to System Preferences then quicktime then go to advanced tab then click MIME settings then scroll down to Miscellaneous and inside tick the SMIL 1.0 box, and restart your browser and the videos should work:))

This worked great until the last bit “Select how you want it TRUELY encoded as anything from mpeg4 video and audio to DivX to H. 264 to Theora REMEMBER: select the transcode buttons. " This completely lost me. I dont understand the meaning of that. I have a file that was labeled avi. it was not the correct label but the file is the correct size and there is nothing suspicious about it that would make me think it was a fake file or virus etc.

Can someone PLEASE help me by explaining the last half of the directions in simple terms.

VLC doesn’t have the exact same settings available on mac as he PC versions bit is similar enough so I hope to figure this out and save this file I cannot replace. reply

Just want to share my thoughs on this. I found this forum page saerching for the 2048 error code and many others with no luck. In particular my error was from qtl files from internet for movie trailers. so after almost giving up after a whole 5 minutes lol, i went to the properties of the qtl. I seen right below attributes was a security section that said file was blocked cause it was from another computer. So i unblocked it. And it worked just fine.
After digging deeper i figured out it was my chrome browser. In internet explorer a pop up asks if i want to open this? Chrome gives no such warning, it just locks the file. Other browsers may do the same!
I know some here stated they had problems with diff types of files. Perhaps their browser is doing the same thing. Also if you use IE and the first time that question ever popped up you checked the box saying dont ask again, then you hit NO, you obviously wont get that pop up.

Hope this helps! Good Luck! reply

Having the same problem in XP with AVCHD video files made with a Lumix camera. The owners manual says Quicktime will play them, but Quicktime 7 won’t. I get an “error -2048 The file is not a movie file." The manual also says if you want to edit your Lumix movies, purchase Quicktime Pro. If Quicktime 7 won’t even play them, I hesitate to pay for pro and find it doesn’t work either.

The solution? Windows 7 and the new Windows Movie Maker. Works like a charm. MM also works great on those stubborn .MOD files. reply
