Quicktime Message

Question

My OS is Windows 8 and I have Roxio NXT installed. I'm trying to save some video clips which I've downloaded from my camera onto a DVD. I keep getting the message that I must have Quicktime installed. Is there a way round this - it would appear that this is awful for crashing according to reports on the net.

No, Quicktime is required for the mov video files as stated in the requirements for the product. It has the codecs necessary to code/decode the files. is free and it doesn't take up much room on your computer

 

You can try a third party converter to convert the mov files to mpg2 but I don;t know if those will work without the codecs installed. The most common codec packs probably do not have the required codecs.

 

It is your choice, install Quicktime or get another camcorder that will not use mov files. What is you objection to Quicktime?

 

Edit: I have a couple of other video editing program and they all require the codecs in Quicktime.

Hi, many thanks for your reply. I 'Googled' Quicktime for Windows * and a lot of people have said that it either doesn't work or that it continually crashes. Obviously there has to be a problem somewhere unless there are a lot of professional complainers. I'm not using a camcorder, its a Canon camera with a video facility. I took lots of high resolution video clips on a recent holiday which I saved onto my netbook. Now back home I've copied them on my desktop PC which has the Roxio Creator NXT programme. I would like to save them to a DVD so I can play them through a DVD player and watch on my TV - a much bigger screen than my desktop. I might just stick to taking photo's next time!

Don't assume installing Quicktime will fix every issue using .mov files in Roxio.

 

I have Quicktime installed and Cannon power shot video shot in .mov format imports but has no audio in Roxio. Plays fine in Windows Media Player and VLC.

I've solved the problem by not using Roxio or my desktop PC. I've bought a projector cable, male to male, together with a double ended jack lead and connected my netbook directly to my tv - perfect. Recommend this method to anyone experiencing difficulties trying to create DVD's and sound.
