    quick time 7.6.4
    I just software updated to qt 7.6.4 and it wont play my quicktime movies. It plays dv movie, avi,mpeg movies but not qtmovie. It says that some components are missing and directs me to the qt component page but nothing about why it doesnt platy the very movies it was designed for ..I dont want to fresh install the OS just for the sake of Qt...please advise ..cheers s

    Hi Steve, Quicktime is a format that covers many different video codecs.... It's important to know which components exactly are missing. Cheers Rounik

    Hi Steve, No probs. OK Here are a couple of things to try before installing Logic 9. 1. Find out what codec the videos are in: - Select the video file in the Finder - Hit Command-I to display the Info window. 2. Try re-downloading Quicktime Pro. - Via the Apple website 3. Try VLC Download VLC & check if the video file plays back ok in VLC. - [url]http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-macosx.html[/url] 4. Download Perian. Perhaps you were using a special codec that Quicktime can not normally read. Perhaps you had installed Perian on your PPC Mac? [url]http://perian.org/[/url] 5. Let's not go there quite yet ;-) Hopefully the first four steps have resolved the issue... at the least the info from #1 will help us understand what is going on. Cheers Rounik
