    MOV videofiles (Quicktime)

    Windows Live Photo Gallery imports and plays fine several
    videoformats, like mpg.
    However, my Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ 50 produces videofiles in Quicktime
    format - MOV.
    WLPG does not display these files and will not play them.

    Everytime I start WLPG, a dialog box pops up and tells me that it
    needs to install codecs to support RAW and Quicktime files. A button
    says "Download". Clicking download, brings me to Apples Quicktime
    website for download.
    I install Quicktime - however no change. Every time I start WLPG, it
    keeps on directing me to Apples website.

    Anyone know if support for Quicktime MOV files can be installed with
    Windows Live Photo Gallery under WIndows XP?

    =======================================
    Have a look at the following FAQs:

    I shoot RAW with my digital camera. How do
    I get the right codecs so I can view them in Windows?

    My camera takes Quicktime video. How do
    I see those files in the Windows Vista Photo Gallery?

    Similar problem.
    I've installed QuickTime Alternative, which installs codecs only, and
    there's no way to see mov files with PG.
    It seems that PG had been released a little incomplete. There's a lot of
    missing features...

    Can you change formats to something more cross-platform like AVI? I see less
    and less QT than I used to.

    Often these mov files are mjpeg (motion jpeg), not Quicktime,
    which can be played with WMP and probably in photogallery as well. Just
    change the extension to avi.
