Nope, certain older .MOV files use a codec which is not public, thereby there was never a plugin for WMP.
I suggest to use "Media Player Classic" (google it) , it plays everything WMP does, but better, and also plays .MOV and .RM (realplayer)

here's a similar thread to yours : http://forums.3ivx.com/cgi-bin/ikonb...m=11&topic=145

btw, this is not a dumb thread, there can only be dumb replies

On my fathers laptop there's a plugin there plays .mov files in WMP.

Dunno the name, have to search it.

maybe click the link I posted? 3ivx plays the recent .MOV files; on older ones which you another codec it only plays the sound.

After installing 3ivx, WMP just plays the sound but not the video
Quote:
it's my understanding that WMP will only play mov or qt files IF they are UNcompressed, this is a legacy thing from the era of win 3.1, before apple codecs that wmp couldn't use, and wouldn't share the code.

since you are getting the sound, that's probably not compressed
but the video is, so you should play it in quicktime (which may have the custom codec), if that doesn't work i'd upgrade your version of quicktime to version 6.1
you can get it at http://www.apple.com/quicktime/

I have the same problem on that setup with wmv files...

could you possibly need quicktime for those too?

WMV stands for Windows Media Audio/Video File

it will work with Windows Media Player without issue;
