When it comes to a video format, MP4 may first come into your mind since this MPEG-4 Part 14 file format enables you to limitlessly access to almost all media players. However, even though such multimedia container is near-perfect, there still has something to improve.
QuickTime is an extensible multimedia framework powered by Apple Inc., which has the feature of handling various formats of digital video, picture, sound, panoramic images, and interactivity. Since QuickTime is compatible with both Windows (Windows XP and later) and Mac (Mac OS X Leopard and later) and very powerful, it is quite popular.
Although MP4's file structure is based on Apple’s QuickTime technology, its data embedded in this MPEG-4 Part 14 file, like MPEG-4 Part 10 (known as H.264/MPEG-4 AVC), MPEG-4 Part 2, etc, causes a codec problem which doesn't work well with Apple products. As a result, if you'd like to play MP4 on QuickTime, you’d better convert MP4 to MOV on Mac first because the MOV container is the default format of Mac OS X and performs optimum compatibility with QuickTime.
To solve QuickTime won't play MP4 issue, a strongly recommended solution is to convert all kinds of MP4 videos and movies to QuickTime more compatible MOV formats.
