Applications :: Open A Webpage With A Video File Without It Playing Automatically?

Oct 24, 2010

I recently "upgraded" to Snow Leopard and Quicktime X. Since then, there has been one increasingly annoying problem: Anytime a webpage has a movie (more specifically, a movie with its own URL), it opens it up with QT in the browser and automatically starts playing the movie. Despite deleting QT X and reverting to QT 7, the problem persists, no matter the browser (I have 4).

So 2 questions:1. Why is it that this was NOT a problem at all in Tiger (simply disabled the autoplay in QT, worked for everything), but is a huge problem in Snow Leopard?

2. More importantly, how do I fix it without writing a Terminal script that is the length of War and Peace?

OS X :: No Video When Playing A Wmv File?

May 12, 2009

I have a problem with a .wmv file. When I play it in QuickTime or VLC, I hear audio only, but no video. I have the latest Flip4Mac plugin and have no problems playing other .wmv files. The first time I played the file in QuickTime, as was directed to the Apple QuickTime components web site

[URL]) because "Additional software is required by QuickTime to playback this media...". But I see no plugin on that web site that would be applicable.

I would be grateful for any ideas as I want to purchase educational videos from this vendor, but can not if their files won't work on a Mac.

QuickTime :: .mov File Has No Video - Playing It In 7 On Windows XP

May 11, 2012

I work for a law firm and we received a CD which contains a .mov file. When we try to play it in Quick Time, it plays the audio, but NO video. We are trying to play it is Quick Time (version 7.7.1) on a Windows XP Pro PC. When Quick Time first opened, it gave a message saying "Additional software is required for QuickTime to playback this media. It may be available from the Quick Time Components page." I clicked Continue and it took me to the Components page, but it lists like 10 different components and I have no idea what we need. Is it a CODEC? I have tried converting it to a different format usinig two different softwares and have gotten errors.

Applications :: MP4 File Not Playing?

Nov 13, 2010

I'm new to this forum (and fairly new to Mac) and am having a slight issue with getting Quicktime and Logic 9 to play an mp4 file correctly.

When the file is opened, the window goes black, with the audio playing throughout the clip - very nconvenient since I am on a film composition course where I need the video, NOT the audio. However, if I open the file in VLC Media Player, it plays perfectly fine. The problem is, I need to write music to go with the clip, which means using Logic. When the clip is imported into Logic, the same thing happens as with Quicktime; black creen, full audio.

I read on a thread somewhere on this forum that Quicktime may not be using the right codec, but have no idea which codec I would need or how to use it through Quicktime (or where to get it from).

The strange thing is, Quicktime and Logic both managed to open and play an mp4 file from my boyfriend's phone with no problems whatsoever, but the files that I transferred from my university will not play, which doesn't make much sense really. I've tried transferring them via an external hard drive, USB stick and DVD - same case for each one!

I need to make a decent start on this project by Tuesday so would like for it to be resolved this weekend! I have a Mac Mini, if that even matters?

Applications :: ITunes 10 Crashes While Playing Video?

Sep 11, 2010

I've had iTunes 10 on my PPC Mac crash twice in the past hour while playing SD video that worked fine in iTunes 9 here. The first time iTunes itself crashed. The 2nd time it caused a kernel panic. Has anyone else had any issues playing video with iTunes 10, particularly under Leopard or a PPC machine under Leopard? I'm about ready to go back to iTunes 9 at this rate.

Applications :: ITunes 10 - Not Playing Any File?

Oct 8, 2010

I woke up this morning and used my apple remote to wake my MacBook, then hit play again to start iTunes playing. Nothing happened.

I verified that the sound was turned up, to maximum. And on closer inspection found that iTunes had started to play a song, but was making no progress in actually playing that song - the progress bar was stuck at 0:00 and skipping songs or scrubbing within a song makes no difference.

Restarting the application made no difference.

All of my music is 128kbps m4a and I also attempted to play m4v files, with a similar lack of success.

I am running iTunes 10.0 on OSX 10.6.4, and I have modified the .plist to restore the coloured icons, as well as using the terminal hack to restore the traffic lights to the correct orientation.

Applications :: Playing A Corrupt H.264 Mov File?

Mar 20, 2010

I just recently got my hands on the Kodak Playsport waterproof 1080p shooting mini camcorder. Have pretty much loved the thing until this point.

I responded to a call to a pin-in accident yesterday with this little fellow strapped to my chest on my fire coat. It's the first time I've taken it on a run, and it turned out to be a pretty bad one. I hit record while on the truck enroute. We worked for about 35 minutes extricating the sole passenger, and when all was said and done, I returned to the truck and removed my camera. The record light was still on, the screen still showing a live preview, but the recorded time number had stopped at about 37 minutes. All the controls were unresponsive. Not even the power button worked. After about 5 minutes, I had no choice but to remove the battery to shut the camera off. I turned it back on, and was shown an exclamation point where the video I had just shot was. The video would not play. I removed the 8gb SD card and plugged it directly into my computer, and the file size of the last video shot was only 67MB, not nearly high enough for 37 minutes of 720p @ 60frames per second. I am still unable to get even that fragment to play.

Any ideas on how to either recover more of the movie from the SD card, if it is there (nothing more is shown in the finder, though), or how to get this fragment to play?

I've tried VLC with no luck, and File Juicer, Visualhub and iSquint to no avail.

Thanks guys. If I can get it to play, maybe I'll share the video with the MR community

Applications :: Quicktime 10 - Play Video Automatically?

On the old version of quicktime there was a option in the preferences to start the video playing straight away

In this new version on snow leopard, when you double click a video, quicktime loads it but you still need to press play.

I can't see a option anywhere to make it play vids straight away.

Applications :: QTPro Export For Web - Reference File Not Playing M4v?

Dec 5, 2009

An interesting problem that I haven't been able to reconcile through my hosting company so I thought I would post here. I exported a video clip using QT Pro 7.6.4, export for web and uploaded the entire directory and tested for playback on my iPhone 3G 3.1.2:
(iPhone playback doesn't work and it does not even load the poster image - but desktop playback does work perfectly.)

Then I proceeded to upload the same directory to another site to test for playback:
(both iPhone and desktop playback methods work perfectly)

So then I proceed to see if the individual files are even playing back on the server that wasn't loading the video on my iPhone: [URL](video plays back fine on the iPhone when hit directly)

This leads me to believe it is an html/scripting error of some kind? But this is the exact same html file generated from QT that has been uploaded to both servers. I have tried using the full URL for the .mov file to no avail. Why would it work on one server and not on another? Is there possibly some issues with the server not being able to interpret the reference file correctly? Or a javascript/server type error? Or is there something else I am missing? I have tried configuring MIME types using a .htaccess file, but I am not sure if this is even the issue as I am able to play back the video fine when hit directly.

Applications :: Want Vuze To Automatically Open When Torrent Is Downloaded?

Jan 15, 2009

If I download a torrent in firefox vuze automatically opens (because that's what I have set it to do under the application tab in preferences). But I'm using safari, as my primary browser, and I would like for safari to associate torrents with vuze/transmission in the same way.

When I download a torrent from, say, mininova the torrent is downloaded to my downloads folder and is visible in the safari download window (with the azureus icon) - but I manually have to open the torrent for vuze to start downloading. So the torrent is associated to vuze, but it doesn't automatically start downloading.

Applications :: Unable To Open Keynote Presentation File - File Corrupted?

Oct 18, 2010

Today I tried opening my keynotes presentation file to make amendments to it and when I double clicked on it, the program loading bar only loaded up a third of the way and then hanged. I then tried to save it to a flash drive and use it on a different computer, but when I tried to copy it over to the flash drive it gave me this error: "the finder cannot complete the operation because some data in "garment styles" could not be read or written error code - 36".

I have tried changing the file extension to a zip, then unzipping it and then renaming it but that did not work.(It wouldn't let me unzip it). I have also looked at the index file name to see if that was the problem, but that is as it should be.

I have also tried uploading it to a website and emailing it and it will not let me.

Is there anyway I can recover this file as I have been working on it for over a month and it is due next week, or will I need to start again?

OS X :: Connected To Ethernet / Can't Open Webpage

Jul 9, 2009

After setting my Built-in Ethernet card to DHCP today, for some reason it all of a sudden got an ip adress and became green and stated that it was connected.

But i couldn't open any websites on either of my browsers (mozilla, safari) and when i used the diagnostic it said that the internet, isp and network were working but that the Internet and Server have failed.

Can anyone help me with nthis new perdicament? I read somewhere that maybe i should swap the eth0 and eth1? Make one internal while the other external? I'm not sure if this applies

I'm using a macbook and am connecting to a dormitory internet. I had to give them my Ethernet ID and they gave me a password and a login which i still am not too sure what to do with. When i use the PPPoE version my network settings/internet/server fail.
