    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.................................

    1.This is not a big problem to worry about.

    2.The file which you trying to play that file format may be not supported.

    3.So try to install the Player which supports that format and then try to use it.

    4.If you want to play it in Quick Time Player only then you go to the website 'www.filehippo.com'.

    5.From there you download the Any Video Converter Software and then install it.

    6.Now you by using it you convert it into the format which your QuickTime Player Supports and now you can play that video using Quick Time Player.

    That's it by doing as i said you can solve your problem.

    All the best...............................
