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.
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.

Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) is a file format that shrinks an audio file’s size, which, as the word “lossless” in the name implies, results in no loss in audio quality or original data. FLAC accomplishes this by using an algorithm that compresses the file to approximately 50 to 70 percent of its original size.
The default program for opening a FLAC file is VLC media player. Other details about FLAC include that it is unpatented, permits music reproduction, is compatible with Telephony Application Programming Interface (TAPI), and is not subject to digital rights management (DRM).
Additionally, codecs that can implement FLAC include FFmpeg, Flake and FLACCL for encoding, and Audiocogs for decoding. Lastly, as the word “free” in the name suggests, FLAC is open-source software.
