Installing Harmony Dependencies on Windows

On Windows, some features of Harmony rely on the following software:

  • Windows Media Player must be installed to enable Harmony's audio and video transcoding capabilities. On most consumer versions of Windows, it is installed by default and only specific editions of Windows do not have it.

    NOTE Windows Media Player is not supported on Windows 7 Starter and Windows 7 Home Basic.
  • QuickTime Player is required to export movie files in QuickTime Movie (.mov) format as well as to import any type of movie file. Withiout QuickTime Player, Harmony can still export QuickTime Movie (.mov) files, but only with the H.264 (AVC) video codec and with uncompressed (PCM) audio. However, Harmony does not need QuickTime Player to launch and can be used without it.

  • Adobe Reader is required on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 in order to read PDF documents. It can also be installed on Windows 10, but Windows 10 is bundled with Microsoft Edge, which can be used to read PDF files.
