Saved file error - now solved


Processed just over 6,000 images and saved as 1080p, JPEG Codec.

Quick Time 7 can’t open the file, gives an error
“The movie could not be opened. An invalid sample description was found in the movie.”

However, QT 10 can open the movie.

I’d like to use QT 7 as it has more editing options.


It seems that if I save the file as “mov” there is no problem opening in QT 7.


Quicktime 7 probably does not support the latest codecs such as JPEG and HEIF. I recommend using H264 / mp4 which is the most compatible.


Thanks, some testing gave the following results.
