These are clips I have purchased for use in my projects. Yes they will play in a windows media player. They played in my projects before I wiped my operating system clean and rebuilt it on a SSD. I have been getting a message that I don't have Quicktime installed so I installed Quicktime 7 and I still get the same message
My computer set-up:
Windows 7 Pro service pack 1
Intel i7 Processor x980 @3.33GHz
24 GB RAM
Geforce GTX680 Video Card
OS on 256 gb SSD
Scratch on SSD
10 2TB Internal Hard Drives
1200 Power supply
I have been getting a message that I don't have Quicktime installed so I installed Quicktime 7 and I still get the same message
That indicates that your Adobe apps (likely more than just Pr) aren't picking up the Quicktime installation. You should try uninstalling, manually cleaning out any remnants of QT, and reinstalling. If that doesn't work, then maybe reverting to an earlier version of QT would help.
FWIW, I have QT 7.7.2 installed here with CS5.5.2 and they play nicely together.
I know this is an old thread, but this may still help someone having problems importing .mov files into Premiere Pro CS6 (or earlier versions) in Windows 7/8.
- Go to control panel
- Appearance and personalization
- Folder options
- View tab
- Un-check Hide extensions for known file types
- Hit OK
- Find your FILE.mov file and rename it to FILE.mpg
Try importing the newly renamed .mpg file to Premiere and it should work. PP CS6 kept crashing for me, but once I renamed the file, it imported perfectly. Hope this helps.
