Summary: If Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 fails to play QuickTime MOV videos, you may have to convert MOV to Galaxy Tab 3 supported video format first. Learn how to.


If you’re in the market for a new Android tablet, you might just be in luck as Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy Tab 3 (in 7.0-inch, 8-inch and 10.1-inch versions). With the high resolution display and fast processor, it must be nice experience of watching HD movies on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. While, the Jelly Bean tablet only supports WMV9, WMV7, WMV8, H.264, MPEG4, Xvid, DivX, H.263, and VP8 video codecs. It makes me suffer headache when I try to play some MOV videos on Galaxy Tab 3 transferred from my computer. I have downloaded many players but that is not working. I did a Google searching and get some info.

Apple only produces a QuickTime plugin for Mac OS X and Windows, and hasn’t developed a Quicktime application for Android. It’s no way to play .mov on Android operating system that means I will have to convert MOV to Galaxy Tab 3 friendly format MP4 to get it play.

I am using Brorsoft Video Converter for Galaxy Tab 3, which makes the conversion task easier and faster. I’ve used the tool for times in addition to converting Quicktime .mov to .mp4 for Galaxy Tab 3, but that went with zero issue and there was no difficulty in navigation or modification of output format parameters.

STEP 1: Download and install the best MOV to Galaxy Tab 3 Converter, and then run the program to add your Quicktime MOV files no matter in 1080p/720p HD or SD to it.


STEP 2: Click on Format, and from the dropdown mean, select Samsung > Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Video(*.mp4) that is the optimal output format for Tab 3.


STEP 3: Tap the Convert button to start the Quicktime MOV to MP4 for Galaxy Tab 3 conversion with the CUDA/AMD acceleration technology support.

After the conversion process shows in 100%, please click the Open button on the main interface that will lead you to the folder where the converted movies are; or you can find the resulted video from the output folder you set. Afterwards, connect your Samsung Tablet 3 to PC via USB cable, then you can transfer and play Quicktime MOV on Galaxy Tab 3 freely.

[size="4"]The .mov format is the video format used in Apple's QuickTime program, which is a media player similar to Windows Media Player. I was asked recently about playing .mov files on android devices. For example:[/size]

Q“Hello, I have had my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 for just over a week, liking it so far. However, the question is, while I tired to play .mov files on it, I find my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 can not support it? Is there an easier solution to solve the problem? Thanks!”

[size="4"]To play this, an app that supports the mov file type must be downloaded, and it seems that a codec must also be installed before the app can be used properly.[/size]

Ok, someone has helped us tested the following free apps:

MX Player
?This required a codec be downloaded
?The video was very slow and had problems with the audio

Mobo Player
?This required a codec be downloaded
?This could not locate the .qt file

?No codec download required
?This could not locate the .qt file

Seaman Player
?No codec download required
?This could not locate the .qt file

HD Player
?No codec download required
?This could not locate the .qt file

AVI Media player
?No codec dowload required
?The video was very slow and had problems with the audio

In short, it seems there is no free app that will sufficiently play .mov/.qt files on android devices. As android doesn't support MOV files. So in order to play them on Android device, you will need to convert MOV to Android compatible video formats, or use Android media player that enables the playback of more exotic formats. Here we will discuss about how to play .mov files on Galaxy Tab 3 natively.
