Why Can not You Play MOV on iPhone

MOV is another type of digital container file for videos and other multimedia. Apple developed MOV for use with the Apple QuickTime Player. MOV is a supported format for iPhone. But sometimes you failed to play a MOV file on your iPhone. The reasons may be:

  • Incompatible codecs
  • Incorrect parameters

As an Apple user, you may know that there are many restrictions on the iOS system. If you can not play MOV on your iPhone due to the above or other reasons, you can also try to use a video converter to change MOV to other formats.
