picasa and .mov files

Post by stuck »

Mrs S's digital camera can record video, as .mov files. Media Player handles them no bother because I have the K-Lite codec pack installed and because I have the K-Lite codec pack I've not got Quicktime installed.

Which means Picasa will not play the the .mov files and in Tools | Options File Types tab the .mov option is greyed out, because Quicktime is missing.

Solution? Rename the .mov files to .mp4. Picasa then plays the files with out so much as a stutter.
