Knowledge Sharing on QuickTime:

QuickTime Player compatible video formats:

  • QuickTime Movie (.mov), MPEG-4 (.QuickTime, .m4v), MPEG-1, 3GPP, 3GPP2, AVI, DV

QuickTime-supportable audio files:

  • iTunes Audio (.m4a, .m4b, .m4p), MP3, Core Audio (.caf), AIFF, AU, SD2, WAV, SND, AMR

To play QuickTime uncompatible files, you can extent QuickTime by using codec components so that you can import or play a variety of additional media formats such as WMV. But this way works very complicated, and it would charge you $29.00. In this way, although you can watch WMV files in QuickTime, you can’t play WMV for other uses, such on edit in iMovie or Final Cut Pro, no organization with iTunes, even no sync to iPhone etc. So the best way is to convert the file format.
