Play Quicktime mov files on Nexus 7
When I try to view embedded streaming quicktime video from the NASA web site in the Chrome app on my Nexus 7, the videos just say "Looking for plug-in..." and show the error "Sorry, this video cannot be played." I have downloaded many player and used other browser, but that is not working. Is it possible to view quicktime .mov video on the tablet?
Apple only produce a QuickTime plugin for Mac OS X and Windows, and haven't developed a Quicktime application for Android. It's no way to play mov on android operating system. You will have to convert it to mp4 to get it to play, or watch it on your Mac/PC computer.
