You should always list your distro and version when you ask questions like this.

I'd guess that you dont have the codecs required to play your .mov files installed.

Ubuntu-restricted-extras does the job IIRC. (assuming that you are using ubuntu)

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

.mov is a 'container' format. So it can contain various audio/video codecs.

Try opening the file in VLC or mplayer. Then check the codecs used. VLC- tools-> codec information. mplayer can get the same info, where its located depends on the frontend you are using.

there is no command ,you manually install it from the ftp codec page on mplayer.hu

but seeing as almost ALL of them violate USA copyright and patents if i tell you i can be sued ( and LOSE big time in court)
welcome the the new "iron curtain" called the US of A

look for the "codecs directory " directory link .

but the version in your distros repo should have support for most of that

try your distros "non free" repo

Has anyone, anywhere, ever got into legal trouble over the 'illegal' codecs? Even if had happened (and AFAIK it has not) posting a 'how to' wouldnt get you into trouble.

The 'ubuntu-restricted-extras' should have added all the codecs with possible legal problems anyway.

I would guess that mostly likely its either a odd codec in a .mov container, or the *buntu version being used is old enough that it doesnt support newer codecs/codec versions. I've seen that problem before.
