A MOV file is a video file extension used by QuickTime media software distributed by Apple. MOV files are not compatible with a PlayStation 3, so if you want to play this format you will need to convert the .mov file extension to an accepted format first. This can be achieved easily using a simple online conversion tool such as Zamzar.
