    hope someone can help me. A friend has sent me a hard drive with several quicktime .mov files on it, which I think he has created in Quicktime Pro.

    None of my PC programs can play this file. I’d hoped to add effects to his footage but can’t even open it. With Quicktime, i’m getting an error code of -2048 if that makes any sense to anyone.

    Has anyone encountered this problem before?

    Depends on what codec he created the Quicktime files with.
    Some codecs there is no PC equivalant. Others like “Animation” are cross platform.

    I spoke to him last night and he has no clue. I suspect it’s the standard codec Quicktime uses to capture. For a PC, that would be Microsoft DV, anyone have any idea what a Mac uses?
