Is there a way to successfully play any MP4 videos on QuickTime without any trouble?

Sometimes you may find that your MP4 videos can’t be played on iPad, iPhone etc. Even some MP4 files just can’t be played on your QuickTime, or there is just the sound but no picture. In order to fix this, we need to convert MP4 to MOV which is supported by Mac, QuickTime, iTunes, iPhone, iPad and iPod. Note that MOV is the default format of Mac OS Sierra.

Why QuickTime Player Can’t Play MP4?

According to Apple Support Website, QuickTime Player can only support MPEG-4 (.mp4, .m4v), but MP4 is a complex video container with various video and audio codecs. That’s why sometimes QuickTime plays MP4 well, sometimes doesn’t.
