Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I want to watch a movie, the thing is that the movie is on a CD. I use QuickTime to play the movie but an error showed up stating; 

Error Opening Movie

The movie could not be opened.

I removed the CD and play it back again, still error existed. I try to boot up and restarted my computer but same thing again, the error showed up.

I cannot play it since same error appeared. Please help me.

Hi there,

Many reasons lie's up regarding your problem. Try to check first the CD, it might be corrupted. Try to open the CD to other computer. Another rthing is the format of the movie.

Check it first before playing the movie; right click the movie clip then select the properties and select there the general tab. Read the files checking the format is supported by QuickTime7, if not supported try to use a media player. You can try the VLC which you can download from there site; www,

This kind plays almost all kind of format. One thing is, Copy the movie into your hard drive from CD. If copying id done without error then your CD is OK, your QuickTime layer may the possible problem.

Better replaced it.

Hi Emma,

  • The movie from your CD is probably burn as a video CD file which some player does not supports it. You can convert you VCD movie to mov file and save it to your computer and be able to play it with quick time or you can simply download DivX codec or Gom Player for you to be able to play it from the CD with Windows player or with Gom player.
  • DivX installer –
  • Gom player –
