MOV file extension
Company: Apple Inc
Mov is related to Apple QuickTime Movie file, a standard Macintosh video file format.
Apple Computer developed the QuickTime file format to create, edit, publish, and view multimedia files. QuickTime format can contain video, animation, graphics, 3D and virtual reality (VR) content. Only QuickTime files version 2.0 or earlier can be played in Windows Media Player. Later versions of QuickTime require the proprietary Apple QuickTime Player.
The MOV file format is a multimedia container format that can store one or more tracks of data such as video, audio, text, and effects. Each track can either contain a digitally encoded media stream, playable using the appropriate codec, or a data reference to a media stream located in another file. In practice this means that it can be easily edited since there is no need to rewrite all media data after editing. Tracks are maintained in a hierarchical data structure consisting of objects called atoms. An atom can be a parent to other atoms or it can contain media or edit data, but it can't contain both.
This flexible format isn't limited only to Macintosh operating systems. The QuickTime (.mov) file format functions as a multimedia container file that contains one or more tracks, each of which stores a particular type of data: audio, video, effects, or text (e.g. for subtitles).
How to open MOV files:
The official multimedia player which can play MOV files is the QuickTime player, however there is an alternative which can support the openly-documented MOV files. QuickTime Alternative is an all-in-one freeware package made for the Windows operating system that enables more players to play MOV files. Normally, the latest version of QuickTime would have to be installed to play MOV files, however QuickTime Alternative takes several codecs from QuickTime 7 (though it is not a licensed Apple product). It also includes web browser plugins for Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Netscape, and comes packed with Media Player Classic also known as MPC star.
