As you read in the title, I get an error whenever I try to export to .mov in Flash MX (see below for [the error msg]). I updated my Quicktime, but it still doesn't work.

The installed version of QuickTime does not have a handler for this type of Macromedia Flash movie. Please consult the documentation for further information.

*edit* BTW, my first post :)

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, FlagMan. :) I assume you've checked your QuickTime & Flash documentation? Were there any optional bits of QT you didn't install, or perhaps any plugins or enhancements you need for Flash?

The option is in default Flash MX with no plugins. I don't know whether I installed everything with quicktime, although there is no reason why I wouldn't have. I will go uninstall quicktime, and reinstall everything now, just incase.

I reinstalled quicktime, and it still doesn't work. I have read a few tutorials, and read the flash help and there is no reason I can see why this wouldn't work.

I don't know about Flash MX, but do you have QT basic or QT Pro?

Yes, it costs and is needed for creation of .mov files. But again, I'm not sure whether Flash MX needs pro or basic to export QT format.

Why not export to avi? You should be able to do so with Flash or Swish.

It comes up with an error when I try to export to avi, but I need .mov for a school project.

*edit* I will go get pro now and see if it helps.

I installed quicktime pro, but still get the same error... how long should it take to convert a simple 30 seconds flash movie to .mov? I could probably just send it to a friend to convert it, but I really want to know why this isn't working.

When exporting to a movie in flash mx, that progress bar will pop up, and usually stop half way. Then jus sit back and wait. My old computer used to always freeze. You have a good computer?

@king: No progress bar comes up, just that error.

@rich: It has to be an actual .mov file, not a flash file with a movie embedded in it (damn school project :/ )
