"I had recorded a Documentary about the Nature in South Africa for a German cinema with my Samsung NX1 camera. And I want to view the video footage on my Mac computer with its default media player - QuickTime Player. However, QuickTime player does not read the recording videos copied from my camera. I know that the videos recorded with my camera are compressed video H.265 codec. Any solutions? Appreciate your reply."
As we know, the compression codec used by Samsung NX1 is only used by Apple in FaceTime on its iPhone 6 and latter models.
