Either install vlc player which is free.

Or you need to install a codecs pack persionally I'd try vlc first

Do I have to install it?I tried the zip version but couldn't get it going.When I right clicked on the mov file there wasn't an option to open it with vlc player?

I use Jetaudio Basic it is free. I haven't found a file extension it wouldn't play.

Mine is actually version 6 but version 7 is out now and still free.

Just downloaded and installed JetAudio version 7.

It still plays everything I have got Video and Audio.

The only snag I find with the program is, it won't record Video files, only Audio files.

Quick time player is the original for playing mov files; although as you see there are a number of others.

You also enquire about converting them; (you did not say to what format).

"Super" will convert almost anything
