I'm not really sure where to put this question but I can't open .mov files that I've downloaded. I'm using a MacBook Pro and therefore quicktime. It gets almost al the way through converting and then says:

QuickTime Player can't open "footagecrate-muzzleflash-magnum-side-1.mov".

I've tried it with other files and it is giving me the same error message. Even files that I had previously dowloaded and converted with no problem don't work. I'll try some other things but I don't think I've made any major changes to my computer recently.

You can download QuickTime here:  https://support.apple.com/kb/DL837?locale=en_US

Though after some tests and research, it looks like PowerPoint doesn't support .mov files with transparency. Mp4 files will work though!
