How to Fix Sony Vegas not Opening MOV Files?

Sony Vegas is video editing software that supports various file formats. A common complaint that many people report is the software’s incompatibility with MOV files. To understand this, MOV files are container files and may contain different codecs. So, if a codec that is used in a MOV file is not supported by Sony Vegas, then the respective MOV file cannot be opened.

In such cases, your best bet is to convert the MOV file into a more generic format such as MP4. This can be done using the VLC player. It is an open-source media player that is available for free. It has the ability to convert to and from a variety of formats.

How to Convert a MOV File to MP4?
