Having tried several player in Android Market, but they are not supported.
Now I upload the MOV to DropBox and download to PC to play in PC.

 The question is not clear to me. Did you mean that you HAVE ALREADY UPLOADED or you WANT TO upload the MOV file?
YouWave is updated to Android Lollipop. See youwave.com/download

The MOV file cannot be played inside YouWave.
All the Video Player apps cannot play the MOV inside YouWave
even some of them were reported to play MOV in Android machine
without any problem.
-----------
one workaround solution is
upload the MOV file to DropBox
Download the MOV file to PC
play from PC
----Ha Ha ----- Do You think this is so clever !!
Just find out the YouWave include media player can play some small MOV.

Another way is to convert MOV to Android more supported video format.
You may refer to this step by step guide on how to convert MOV to Android supported format at http://www.idealshare.net/video-converter/play-mov-on-android.html.
This guide also applies to converting FLV, MKV, WMV, AVI, MPG, 3GP, DV, MXF, AVCHD, WTV, ASF, MP4, and etc to Android video format. It even helps to convert FLAC, AIFF, WAV, WMA, DTS, CAF, to Android audio format.

VLC Player can play MOV files on my YouWave. Search for it on the Play Store or download the APK, install it, and then open the MOV file. It should play unless something's wrong with your YouWave installation.

Here I suggest you can use the FREE MPEG video converter to convert mov to mpeg.

 It is an all-in-one video converter which can help you get MPEG easily with high speed. It has professional and rich settings; you can adjust your videos or audios following your will.

Best
