What is an MOV (Apple QuickTime) file?

Apple QuickTime (MOV) is a container that can hold various types of multimedia files, including 3D and virtual reality (VR). It is known for being useful for saving multimedia files to a user’s device. One of its defining features is that it stores data in movie “atoms” and “tracks” that makes highly-specific editing of the files possible.

 

How to open an MOV file?

By default, a MOV file opens with QuickTime. If the MOV file is Version 2.0 or earlier, then it can open with Windows Media Player, but more-recent versions will not open in this player. If unable to open a MOV file with QuickTime, then use VLC media player, which works across many platforms, including mobile.

 

Note that two other file types also use the MOV extension. They are AutoCAD AutoFlix and ROSE Online. These file types are unrelated, with one being obsolete and the other related to an online game. Apple did not develop these technologies and they do not open in QuickTime.
