Quicktime Unknown error -8971

Page 1 of 21

I am editing on a Mac with Final Cut Pro. I recently created some films compressed as mpeg4. Now I can’t open the films on other Mac’s as unknown error -8971 keeps coming up. Can anyone tell me what these errors are and how I can fix them? reply

I have Windows XP and get the same error when I try to view mp4 formats. Is there a comparable player until the problem can be resolved? reply

Tkx to Sarah, VLC really works! It can even fix some of the damaged files! Too bad I can’t save the fixed files or did I missed anything? reply

I also am getting this error message! but does this mean that you can not play these files through Quick Time? as in the manual on the camera I have it says you should be able to? That is why I purchased it! reply
