Enjoy NX300 60p MP4 Footage on QuickTime Player

Summary: No methods when importing NX300 60p MP4 footage to QuickTime for playing? Why don’t you convert 60p MP4 to QuickTime MOV as we all know the suitable format for enjoying in QuickTime Player?

The Samsung NX300 captures video as an MP4 file using H.264 compression method and records Full HD 1080p at 60fps. It can also record 30fps or 24fps. Sound is captured with in-camera stereo sound. The Samsung NX300 produces just as good video results as it does still images. While as we are now talking about the MP4 footage, it is the common format that can be accepted by some NLEs and portable devices, but for playing on common media player like QuickTime, we cannot directly import them in. This is the format limitation that we may usually meet.

“Hi, guys, I’m just wondering if there’s a smooth way to work with Samsung NX300 60p MP4 in QuickTime. I’m trying to enjoy the video I shot. The thing is that the video playback is very ‘choppy’. Is there a way to go about this problem? Any clues? I would really appreciate any help. Thanks.”

While, the audio, subtitle or other media source that embed in MP4 might have different codecs. That’s the key QuickTime refuses to recognize NX300 60p MP4 footage. The limit compatible video formats, to be frank, really reduce our joy. In order to fix this, we need to convert MP4 to QuickTime MOV which is supported by QuickTime Player. Note that MOV is the default format of Mac OS X Yosemite. For a fast and fluid workflow, Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac is highly recommended. Generally speaking, it is not a converting tool which can easily transcode the MP4 footage to QuickTime MOV, but also an editor that can adjust the output video parameters for advanced users.
