I am thinking about purchasing QuickTime Pro for Windows, but I have not been able to find a list of video file formats that it takes as input. Does QuickTime Pro for Windows convert .mpg files to .mov? Thank you!

  • Any reason to? A .mov is basically just a MPEG container. With what Codec is the actual video encoded?

  • @Gerry I am using VideoMach on Windows to compile many bitmap files and it says that the Codec is "MPEG-1". VideoMach does not directly export to .mov, unfortunately.

  • I'd suggest using standard MPEG4 containers, unless you have a specific reason for using .mov?

  • @Gerry Thanks, my friend who is a Mac user sometimes has trouble playing .mpg files that I send him. I am a Windows user, so I'm not exactly sure what goes wrong sometimes when he tries to play them.
