Mac Mini OSX 10.6.8 2.4GHz Duo Core Intel 8GB RAM: Quicktime 10.0(128)

I have serveral MOV files that a Camera Crew shot raw footage then recaptured to MOV for me but now I found out that I can't import these files into Premiere CS5, I get a codec miss or unavailable error. I can't even play this MOV file in QT, it says I need  a codec. I don't have Final Cut Pro or iLife. What is the codec I need and where can I get the codec to Import my MOV files into Premiere Pro? Or is there a way for me to recapture these files?

Here's a screenshot of the MOV file info. Thanks for any help, I'm new to Premiere

Get the original footage, not what they captured.  Then capture it yourself.

I do have the original footage on tapes but I don't know how to capture to the mac mini since I don't have a camera. Also, my coworker whom has an 2010 iMac is able to view the same MOV files in Quicktime X 10.0 and is able to import into Premiere CS5. I'm just not sure why it doesn't play or import on my mac? Thanks.

You will need a camera for the capture process.

You may have been given video encoded with the Apple ProRes codec.  Apple provides free decoders you can install that may be able to help you out.

If these don't work, you video may be encoded with an Avid codec.  Avid has their full range of codecs available for free.  What's nice is that you can both read and record with them.

Hope this helps.

Change the file extension from .MOV to .MPG and it should work.
