I have recently just purchased a Windows 8 machine and I'd like to keep using the new OS (what can I say, I'm an optimist). Its kind of a bummer that I can't get Quicktime for Windows 8 and therefore can't import .mov files in Premiere Pro. Is there a workaround for this? I've seen people mention using an older version of QT with some success but I can't find one. I've also heard people talk about converting using another software first, I'm just apprehensive about doing that. I'm always afraid that I'll lose something when converting, not to mention I don't want to pay anything for extra software.
I'm using Quicktime Pro version 7.7.3 on Windows 8 x64 right now. Works just fine.
It doesn't say that it is compatible with Windows 8 on the Apple website, so ASSumed that it couldn't work. I downloaded it and it seems fine, thanks. Can we forget this ever happened?
Forget what happened?
