    Can anyone offer some insight as to why .Movs and .MP4s created on an intel Mac will not play on a M1MBP? I just get a black screen. Audio plays but no video.

    Can anyone else replicate this bug?

    You need to understand that when you talk about “.MOV” or “.MP4”, you are talking about the wrapper for these particular files. It does not tell you at all about what kind of codecs (COmpression / DECompression) were used for these files, how your video and audio were encoded in that file.

    As an example you can create a .MOV or .MP4 file with the same codec, i.e H.264

    Finally even inside of a particular codec you can have variants. In my example, H.264 refers to a standardized MPEG-4 part-10 codec (AVC or Advanced Video Coding). MPEG-4 is a very common codec and progress has been made to improve it for different type of usage.

    To go back to your question, in oder to help you, we would need a lot more information about these particular files before we can make an assumption.

    Just finished a massive project on my 2013 Mac Pro with 100 videos rendered as ProRes and h264 and they play back perfectly on my Apple Silicon Mac Mini. What codec are you rendering to on your Intel Mac?
