    Quicktime


    Hi there again.

    I am battling to find and install quicktime for Win 10 64bit.

    I have a .mov file I would like to watch, The picture is clear but it has no sound?

    Anyone out there with advice or better still a working link to get what I need?

    Would appreciate any assistance. Thank you

    Hi Eddie!

    First of all: I expect that your file basically is ok. If it is broken, then the following will not fix it.

    I would not install Quicktime. Normally, Windows Media Player can play mov files. If this is not the case for some files, then the content inside the mov container will be somehow "unusual". I would download a version of ffmpeg like this one http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/win...in64-static.7z and then use it on the command line like so:

    cd folder-with-ffmpeg
    cd bin
    ffmpeg.exe -i input-file.mov output.mp4

    If I remember correctly, ffmpeg should then convert the sound to AAC automatically and Windows Media Player can play AAC sound. With other words: The mp4 file should play with sound.

    Should the above command not do it, maybe the following does the trick:

    ffmpeg -i input-file.mov -c:v copy -c:a libfdk_aac -vbr 3 output.mp4

    This copies the video without changing it in any way (which will be very fast), while the audio is converted to AAC.

    Short of sounding stupid....

    I downloaded the file and it has a few files to install. I installed all of them and it opens a small black screen like cmd prompt but it says cannot find ffmpeg press any key to exit?

    You have to extract all files inside that archive, then open a command prompt and enter the commands I posted above, meaning: Navigate to the ffmpeg folder and use ffmpeg.

    Use VLC player

    You can use VLC to play the files. However, that won't fix them, if they should be usable in Windows Media Player as well. Anyway, VLC also has options to convert a file from one format into another. Basically it works just like ffmpeg, but with a graphical user interface. And with combinations of options not producing the desired results. That is why I prefer using ffmpeg directly.
