QuickTime to Windows Media Player: How to Play MOV Movie on Windows Media Player

Can you play QuickTime movies on Windows Media Player?

In some cases, the Windows Media Player fails to play MOV videos. One of the main reasons that MOV files may fail to play is due to technical issues. The technical issues may occur when the user does not have the plug-ins needed to play the MOV videos. Another problem could be with the QuickTime MOV codec. Installing a QuickTime player could solve the codec problem. However, the QuickTime player is big-sized, and it will install junks to your computer. The non-technical problem could be the fact that your MOV files are corrupted, and thus they cannot be played.
