Hello everyone. I have an EVO 4G phone that has an app called 'Time Lapse'.
I recorded some video, and the format is .mov.
How do I get these videos to play on my Mac ?
Thanks

if its a .mov, it should play with quicktime or VLC.

Thanks, but I have already tried Quicktime ( it opens in QT by default ).

I'll try loading the .mov directly from the EVO. ( I'll do a File > Open File from QT )

" The document 'newmov.4' could not be opened " is the error message

Thanks !

so the file name is "newmov.4" ?

I don't believe the file is correct....at least I don't believe I've heard of a .4 file extension?
