I doubted there’s something wrong with my PC and it is interfering with QuickTime media player resulting in .mov file black screen in QT. My PC is running on Windows 7 and is configured with 1 GB of RAM. I have QuickTime 10.1 media player installed along with default media player. But, the MOV file is unable to play using neither of them. Can anyone help me out with a suggestion to fix the issue or solution for resolving MOV file black screen QuickTime problem?”
