VLC error recognizing video files and another formats

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


I want to run a video on my PC with VLC Player and I have this error. This is the first error that VLC gives me and I don’t know how to solve it. I can’t open this video with any other player. What could be the problem ? Is there a problem with the video or with my PC ?

Thank you !

VLC can’t recognize the input’s format:

The format of ‘file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Marion%20Lewis/Desktop/Test.mov’ cannot be detected. Have a look at the log for details.

If it can't be open by any other player, there might be a chance that file is corrupted. Try finding a player which can play ".mov" extension or download codecs for specific player. You can still try below solution to see if that works.

Go to Control panel->default program-> Set your default program.
Now choose VLC player from the left pane and choose Defaults for this program . Scroll down and click on .mov extension
and save it.

Good luck..!!
