The game saves videos in the .avi file format which QuickTime cannot open. You will need to download another media player or converter to view them. VLC is a good one https://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.en-GB.html



Using CC/Mods is at your own risk, EA are not responsible for making the game compatible with 3rd party content, the creator is.
