My new Canon T5i(700D) shots movies only in .mov format. My new Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 does not recognize .mov format. When my camera is connected to my tablet, the tablet transfers images just fine, but it refuses to see .mov. How can you get mov files to play on a Samsung Galaxy Tablet? Any solutions to this problem?
Someone suggested me to change Canon .mov to mp4 on my pc first – but how do I do this? Or any apps I can download? Searching the issue from Google, I found one of the options is to download and install a MOV convert app- aPubsoft HD Video Converter to change the Canon MOV format for Galaxy Tab.
Overall, it is a versatile tool to convert MOV files from cameras or QuickTime movies to Galaxy Tab 2, Galaxy 3 friendly MP4 video.

Below is the step-by-step process I worked for converting Canon MOV files for Galaxy Tab 3
Step 1. Add video files to the program
Launch the program and add MOV videos in the following two ways: 1> Click Add button to choose video files from your hard drive for converting. 2> Directly drag the movies you want to convert to the left item bar.
Step 2. Choose format for your Galaxy Tab
Click on the pull down menu of Format and choose Samsung > Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Video(*.mp4) as the target format. It ensures the best video quality on Galaxy Tab 3. And if you are a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 user, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Student Edition Video (*.mp4) is the best choice. Just choose a proper format as you need.
Step 3. Edit your Canon MOV movies (Optional)
Before the conversion, you can edit your videos by trimming, cropping, adding watermarks, inserting subtitles((*.srt/*.ass/*.ssa ) and more to get the exact effect and feel you want. (Click the Edit button to open the video editing window, where you can perform the operations.)
After all settings are finished, click Convert button to start converting MOV to Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. A progressing bar will show on the software.
After conversion, you can import the converted MOV video to your Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 for playing and sharing at ease.
