How to Play MOV Videos on Microsoft Windows New Surface RT/Pro Tablet
Cannot Play MOV Videos on Surface Pro or RT Tablet?
Microsoft's new Windows-based Surface is a tablet that has a unique expression of entertainment and creativity. Indeed, there are two versions: Surface RT and Surface Pro (Pro vs RT), with Display resolutions (X/Y) of 1366 px/768 px and 1920 px/1080 px, respectively. However, it has been complained for incapability of playing 1080 Bluray M2TS videos, YouTube FLV videos, QuickTime MOV videos, etc.
-I hope there are 3rd party apps or driver updates for the RT to play more than just wmv and mkv format. Can't believe it won’t play MOV out of the box.
-When I click play now, the program indicates 'now playing'. However, there is no sound or video playback. Does anyone know what this conflict is with Windows 8 and my MOV videos?
Please read the following tutorial on playing QuickTime MOV video on Surface RT/Pro in full screen.
Convert QuickTime HD Video MOV to Surface Tab RT or Pro
If you try to use HandBrake to free convert MOV to Surface, you will find there is no specific profile for Surface, since HandBrake is no more than a video transcoder freeware for Apple (and has few Android profiles).
To play QuickTime HD video (.mov) on Microsoft Surface tablet, there are two tools that can do it for you. WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe converts MOV to Surface RT or converts MOV to Surface Pro supported MPEG4 video file in low, mid and high video resolutions, and WinX Mobile Video Converter converts MOV video to Surface RT/ Pro video in the file extension of AVI or WMV2 in a fixed resolution (720x480). Here we take using the former one, WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe, as an example.
Step 1: Click '+ Video' to add the QT/MOV video, and the software will display the video information for you.
Step 2: In the Output Profile window, choose 'Microsoft Device', and find the last one 'to Surface Video', and make it your output profile. Depend on your own needs, you can choose Microsoft Surface Pro /2 (AVI/WMV2) or Microsoft Surface RT (AVI/WMV2) as the ouput profile.
Step 3: Click 'Browse' to set the destination folder for the output video that has been converted for your Surface Pro or RT.
Step 4: Click 'Run' to start converting MOV video to Microsoft Surface supported video. After the conversion is completed, you may transfer the video to your device for directly offline playback without worries about video format incompatibility and resolution mismatch any more.
