Configuring Movie Settings for QuickTime Movies on GNU/Linux

Harmony is able to export QuickTime Movie (.mov) files on all supported platforms. On Windows, Harmony uses libraries that are bundled with Apple QuickTime to export QuickTime movies. On macOS, Harmony uses the AVFoundation framework, which is pre-installed with the operating system.

Because neither QuickTime nor the AVFoundation framework are available for GNU/Linux, Harmony instead relies on a free and open-source alternative, OpenQuickTime, to export QuickTime-compatible movies on GNU/Linux. OpenQuickTime comes pre-installed with Harmony, and is not bundled with any proprietary codecs. Hence, it offers a more limited set of compression settings.
