Hi

Is Quicktime installed and up to date?  If not install and try again

Hi, Can you even play the .mov file on your computer? You said you wanted to upload a mov file but I am assuming that you are not actually trying to upload it to somewhere likeYouTube because you also said you want to edit it.  So if I assume the file is on your computer and you want to edit it with Movie Edit Pro, the first thing to check is can Movie Edit Pro even see the file.  Use the browser under the "Import" tab to locate the file.  If you can't see the file in the MEP browser, then MEP is not recognizing that file.  It could be corrupt, or if it is purchased material (they usually don't have a .mov extension) you won't be able to edit it at all even if you are authorized to play it.

Finally, if (it is not a purchased file), you can play it and MEP recognized the file, you should be able to drag that file into an unlocked track and do whatever you want to it as long as your version of MEP support .mov files.  If none of this works, you may want to contact Magix tech support using their long drawn out form, or just convert the file to another format say MP4 or something else using one of the many free video file converter programs out there.  I use the one from dvdvideosoft.com and it usually does the trick.  Good luck.

Hi

MEP requires the correct codecs to open video files - for mov you must have Quicktime or another codec which can open mov file and is available to MEP..

mov (and avi files) are container files which may contain any video and audio codecs.  Without the correct codec to open the mov file and then allow the extraction of the internal file with another codec MEP cannot use them. 

Quicktime provides the correct codec(s) and also enables you to play mov fles on your computer.

Codec are an essential requirement and it would be great if there was just a select few of high quality ones to choose from, unfortunately there are hundreds of them.
