use vlc and give up on quicktime for good.video containers, codecs and such are pretty confusing to me but i have not yet found a video vlc cannot play. vlc also includes a video format converter but that can be confusing to use(oh for the simplicity you get in image or 3d model files where the only ways to have different formats are with different file extensions) and once you have vlc you don't need to worry about changing video formats unless you want to send them to someone who doesn't use vlc, or open them in something like windows moviemaker (or other video editors/compositors/sequencers) which only supports certain import formats.
