I have a .mov file that won’t play on my windows quicktime or let me edit it (audio works but no video). Gspot says it uses an xdvb codec but I can’t find any information about it online anywhere!
Anyone know anything about it or what I need to do to get it?
I found this and apparently it’s an FFMpeg Mpeg2 codec? What do I need to do to get that? FFMpeg is a program, isn’t it? Not a codec. I’m so confused!
its just mpeg2 video. the codec status table just uses ffmpeg to decode it.
i’m not sure how to add it into windows quicktime. on mac quicktime you could install perian which might fix it. but windows i dont know.
apple will sell you an mpeg2 decoder for quicktime on windows >> http://www.apple.com/quicktime/extending/components.html
if you want to just play such videos, install VLC ( www.videolan.org ). if you want to convert it , try ffmpeg or other ffmpeg frontend like SUPER.
Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, VLC doesn’t play the file either. I can almost always get audio to play but never video!
I really need the right codec in order to edit it. :(
