1. .MOV player for OS/2?
Reply to this topic with quote Modify your message
Is there a program/player that can run a .mov file? I have a cd-rom with .mov files on it but have not been able to play them on my computer. I tried WarpVisionGUI but I don't think it is listed as one of the types it plays.

Well there is always the old QuickMotion for OS2 that will play older Apple quicktime. But, don't expect that it will play the newer version of qt files. Demo version is available from Hobbes, just search for .mov and you'll get it. But, registrating it for a full version wouldn't be a recommendation. I have it full version of it, but I haven't installed it in two years or so since it doesn't make any difference anyway.

Is there a way to convert .mov to some other movie format? There is VCDGear at http://hobbes.nmsu.edu that converts to/from VCD and MPEG (I downloaded them and will try them eventually).

http://www.vcdgear.com (.org I don't remember which).

There are tools available for converting quicktime movies to other format but problem is that I'm not aware of any for OS2.For Linux and Windows there are and might be there is something around for DOS that would be usefull under OS2. But, to be honest the best format around is actually Quicktime, but then again with bad support for OS2 there isn't much to do.

There is a Quicktime player for OS/2 at Hobbes (http://hobbes.nmsu.edu )as well as Quickmotion for OS/2. The Quicktime readme file says it is for Windows which is odd since it is found at Hobbes. Quickmotion is only the demo but I will try it anyway. It would be neat if it was open sourced.

The Quicktime is for Windows 3.x I guess so can be used if you want to use it for old QT movies. The never ones would work out. Regarding Quickmotion I don't think that there is any development done anymore but last time I checked in at BMT Micro one could still registrate it.

Hi,

if you don't mind using a protected mode DOS program, give a try to QuickView Pro (qvpro).It's shareware and was even discussed in the OS/2 e-zine as to work great. It's available at

http://www.multimediaware.com/qv/index.html

According to what was mentioned in the e-zine and in the Index of the products homepage, it supports .MOV files with a lot of different codecs including DivX and so on...

Good luck!
Thomas

I don't mind using DOS programs with OS/2. I play some DOS games with OS/2 (from http://www.dosgamesarchive.com [IIRC on the url]). Thanks for the information. I will give it a try.

I have tried WarpVisionGUI with mpeg movies and it works great (I have a couple of VCD movies that have mpg files - older Holmes mysteries). I have tried the 'load..' feature but it does not seem to see it or says it is a codec that it does not support (I think I tried it with .mov files but I will try it again to be sure).

I downloaded a .mov file from http://www.corbinmotors.com (a commercial/movie that featured their electric vehicle). I tried to play it with WarpVision (I downloaded the newest version - IIRC) but it said it did not support that codec (sigh).

I have tried the .wvm file (also from the same place/url as above). It would not play either (I was not sure if it would).

I will try the .rm file from the same site.

Since I have ODIN on my computer (the latest one IIRC), I tried to download and install QuickTime for Windows. It started to work but I had to stop it. I have only a dialup connection and it was a 5 meg plua file(s) it was downloading. It would take hours and it was late. I will try another way to install it.

I downloaded the Win codecs for Quicktime from the http://www.apple.com site. Would it be difficult to use them or port them to an OS/2 program or an OS/2 version of Quicktime?

I received an e-mail that QuickMotion was no longer being developed. I replied that I was able to download the Win codecs for Quicktime from the Apple site. I do not know if they are able to use them.

Guess that there is now really use to post the old QuickTime code since it's just too old. Apple did release a beta version for OS2 way back but it was really bad and hung the CPU for everything it had. So guess that would never happen.

I tried the QuickTime for OS/2 (I think there was a copy of it at either http://hobbes.nmsu.edu or http://www.os2site.com or http://www.os2bbs.com ). It would not run anything .avi (just showed 'loading'). I had to use 'ctl esc' to close the program. I tried QuickMotion but it would only run a few .avi movies and only after one clicked on the program after clicking 'ctl esc' to bring it up so one can see it (otherwise it looked like it was not working).
