MOV File Not Playing Video

MOV File Unable to Play Video issues on Windows

I don’t know why my MOV file not playing video. I have a few MOV video files on my computer and they play only audio data when I try to play those files in QuickTime. I’ve looked for the missing codecs in the files and QuickTime shows the general page with various codecs listed. This is generally happening when I store videos which are shot from my HD camera. I use a latest version of Windows OS. Thanks.
