Can't convert QT MOV files to CFHD

I can no longer convert plain vanilla MOV files to CFHD after upgrading to Windows 7 x64 from Vista x64. MOV files from the Canon 5d2 still convert fine in HDLink, but even the file sample.mov that is included with QT for Windows doesn't work. Can anyone else convert sample.mov to CFHD, using HDLink under Windows 7 x64?

Now here's the part that I don't understand. In Vista x64, any MOV file would always create a media graph in graphedit.exe, because graphedit was using the MediaLooks QT File reader that comes with Prospect HD (You could see the MediaLooks watermark). That no longer works either and graphedit now crashes when trying to render any MOV file.

Is this some Windows 7 conflict? Because Win 7 was rumored to have a version of WMP that would play MOV files natively and in fact, it does.

Hi Jay,
I've been able to reproduce it in Win7 64-bit too. It may be that MediaLooks needs an update, so we'll check into that.
Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Thanks. it's no big deal, as I don't convert that type of files that often. I neglected to mention that I downloaded the newest build of the Media Looks QT DirectShow Filter. Unregistering the Prospect HD version (1.7.0.9) and registering the new one (1.7.0.22) gave the same error. The MS DTV-DVD Video decoder in Win 7 will decode the following codecs (if its merit is high enough):

MPEG2, MPEG1, H264, AVC1 and X264.

This allows graphedit to render MOV (and other) files with those FOURCC codes. That doesn't help HDLink, though, as you must have including code that checks for the various types of MOV files (5d2, 7D and others), so with the Media Looks QT DS Filter unregistered, it can't read plain MOV files.
