mov is NOT a codec, it is a container just like MKV is a container. Windows 7 is capable of splitting the container down to its audio/video contents (sometimes) but your system would still need the proper codecs to be able to playback these contents.

Just because you fail to understand Media Center playback does not class the player as capricious.

of course this would be your choice given your lack of understanding concerning video playback in general , but you know what? This is the Media Center forum, not the VLC forum.

If WMP and VLC can play the video but Media Center cannot, it is DEFINATELY a codec problem.

BTW, Media Center DOES NOT use Windows Media Player for playback.

I dont even know if installing my codecs will help you but if you upload a sample mov file to ************** and post the download url here, I can test it and tell you if my software can solve your problem, or not, without you even installing it to test its viability.
