no codec set for coder - February 5 at 12:58:PM

We have several .mov files to analyze. They will not import and the message log says "No codec set for coder."

The files are not particularly large, 10 to 20 MB. They were made with the same cameras that produced successful video files just two days ago. They play just fine in an app like VLC. I've done all the standard troubleshooting up to and including uninstalling and reinstalling Tracker.

Should work. Haven't had this problem before and I'm kind of baffled. Error message attached.
