I've been using QuickTime Alternative - Wikipedia for many years, without issues, Mainly QTLite - of course later Windows have codecs built in to give in-built support for .Mov files or I use things like VLC player that has the

Just installed Qt lite as advised elsewhere.
Ran a 680mb Hero 3 video in Brorsoft (trial version) to test if this was the solution to my problems!
Video pre-view ran OK until towards the end then began to "stutter". Carried on with conversion to MPEG 2 anyway. This progressed to about two thirds of the file, then the machine shut down.
This had happened before with GoPro files, I am consequently no further on.
It would almost seem to me that my Acer 5742Z is not up to the job, I have checked Acer updates etc for anything I might need but am up to date, the machine has never shut down on me ever before.....Help

Have you tried using VLC for playback? My car Dash cam produces Mov files and it plays them back perfectly without any special additional drivers - It also has the ability to "playback" to a different file format, a 1:1 speed conversion so lowest overhead possible, which could be another option for conversion as it will not stress your laptop as much as a regular convertor, (I have not personally used this method often, as my system can handle the full convertors easily, but it does work )

At the moment I am trying out the same video on different players, have tried VLC and still get the "jerks" The problem seems to be the size of the GoPro files, your dashcam won't be GoPro ?? This all started out with my wanting to do some clever editing in Sony Vegas, I needed a converter for it to recognise GoPro files, I don't remember the original files being jerky in VLC when I first viewed them some time ago (these are my ski-ing files and perhaps I thought it was my technique then!)

My dashcam is a Nextbase 1080P so 1920x1080 full HD - I know that some GoPro are now 4k so that may be the issue, laptops are not usually suitable for Hi Res playback, ( what you class as Hi Res has varied over time, a few years ago 1080p was classed as Hi Res and the laptops of the day struggled to work with that). The next stage is already in the pipeline - 8K panels are already on the way.

Also of course the aspect of this system is a little more than a laptop so I would not expect any stutter on playback

Alternative to Quicktime?
Are there any alternative downloads to Apples Quicktime that will play .MOV files? I prefer just a codec that will play the movies inside WMP if possible. I found "Quicktime Alternative" via google but it does not seem to work in Win 7 x64.
