    Hey guys,

    I'm having some problems exporting a .mp4 video to .mov. It's not a missing codec or anything, I've tried playing it with a few different players. Here's how I have it set to export (both boxes are checked):

    Compression: H.264
    Quality: High
    Key frame rate: 24
    Frame reordering: yes
    Encoding mode: multi-pass
    Dimensions: 1280x576 (Current)

    Format: Integer (Little Endian)
    Sample rate: 48.000 kHz
    Sample size: 16-bit
    Channels: Stereo (L R)

    I'm not sure where it's losing the video. Any help would be appreciated.

    Just out of curiosity, why are you exporting the video as .mov, using a highly compressive codec for the video (H264) and a lossless compression for audio (Little Endian)? What is the destination for that .mov file? Is it an editing application?

    Have you also tried MPEG Streamclip and File > "Export to QuickTime" (CMDE+)?

    All the settings were defaulted by QuickTime.

    I have tried MPEG Streamclip, but I get "Error: can't prepare the movie" every time.

    To simplify simsaladimbamba's question in Post No. 2:

    Why are you doing this?

    The default .mov container today contains H.264 video and AAC audio. A .mp4 to .mov conversation should be a pass-through with no track conversion. However, just about any software that can handle .mov with H.264 video track can also handle .mp4. There appears to be no valid technical reason for doing what you are trying to do. Why do it?

    iMovie '09 (8.0.6) isn't importing the .mp4 file.

    Edit. I should clarify: It uploads it, puts it into the folder, but it is not actually in iMovie. The .mov (audio only) did go into iMovie.
