As is known to all, MOV is highly compatible with Mac OS X, however, some MOV files just can't be opened in QuickTime or there is just the sound but no picture, like MOV footage from JVC GY-HM100, or some particular MOV files can't be streamed to Apple TV. That's really annoying and what you need to do is converting the MOV file to other format, like MP4, which is the most popular video format for Phones, digital players, tablets and so on.
