Tracker doesn't open Video - Jul 16, 2013 at 5:32AM

Xuggle Error:
Xuggle has encountered the following error while opening this video:
"moov atom not found"

And tracker says: Cannot open the video.

There ist no problem with the video but it is about 2,75GB big. This problem occures with other big videos, too.

Is there any possibility to help or do I have to cut every video bigger than a particular size?

Thanks for your help

Regards
Martin

Hi Martin,

Have you tried switching to the QuickTime video engine to see if it will open the video? To switch, select QuickTime in the video tab of the preferences dialog (Edit|Preferences menu).

If that doesn't work, I think you will indeed have to split the large videos into smaller files.

Hope this helps.  Doug

Hi Doug,
thanks for your fast answer!
Yes, I tried the same video on another computer and this one had the quicktime video engine. Then it was working =)
Kind regards
Martin

Sorry to necro this post, but I'm getting this error for large videos.  When I switch to the quicktime video processor, it switches to 32bit, but when I relaunch tracker it will only launch in 64bit mode, which sets the video processor to None.

I can convert the videos to any format, I've been using .mov files as a default.  Would another format work better with Xuggle?

Check the Runtime tab in the preferences dialog (Edit|Preferences). You should set the preferred Java VM to a 32-bit one. As far as converting videos, I recommend FLV, which the Xuggle video engine always handles well. Also, if possible you should cut very long videos into shorter segments, analyse each separately, and combine the data in a spreadsheet or in Data Tool if needed.

Hope this helps !  Doug
