Applications :: Trying To Play An Avi File In Quicktime?

Nov 19, 2009

Has anyone seen a question mark using Quicktime?

I have recently purchased a 21.5" iMac w/ATI GPU for my work computer, and I am trying to play an avi file in Quicktime. The file is coming from the Windows program 3D Max, and has an avi file which has worked on all my Macs except for my new iMac that is running Snow Leopard.

Does anyone know if this a Snow Leopard issue or Codec problem? I have already downloaded Perian, but have had no luck in fixing my problem.

Has anyone else experienced the '?' covering the Quicktime icon like I show in the attached pic?

Applications :: Quicktime X Won't Play Mov File?

Aug 26, 2010

The underlying issue here as well is that iDVD won't recognize this file either.

My wife works for a TV station and one of the editors at the station put a video file together with Final Cut Pro and put it on our external hard drive.

The file is just over 3 gig and won't open in Quicktime. It WILL open in VLC, but I need to get it in a format that iDVD will recognize because I created a DVD menu for this video and want to add it to my DVD project.

I have some other videos she recently brought home as well in the same .mov format but they are smaller, around 800 MB and those will not play in Quicktime either, but they are recognized by iDVD when I try to add a video the DVD project.

I'm guessing I'm missing a codec here and have tried a number of them but nothing seems to work. I was able to find a free converter that converted the file to .avi and it would then open in Quicktime, but there was a logo added to the video which makes it basically useless to us.

So my questions are-

1) Is it simply too big a file for Quicktime to play? What is the max file size it will play?
2) Is there possibly a codec I'm missing here that I haven't tried yet?
3) What else could the problem be?

QuickTime :: Downloaded An .avi File And The Sound Won't Play

May 25, 2012

I downloaded an .avi file and the sound won't play. It said the audio was in dolby ac3 code 8192 and I would need a plug-in. I tried converting to DivX and playing through Flip & that didn't work either. I tried placing the file in the library>audio>plug-in>component folder & that didn't work. There is no Quicktime folder to place it in.

Applications :: Quicktime 10 - Play Video Automatically?

Aug 29, 2009

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 :: QuickTime Pro V.7.6.4 Won't Play Full Movie

Feb 4, 2010

QuickTime has started playing only 3 or 4 seconds of some avi movies. The timer bar goes all the way to the end, but only lasts a few seconds. The files play fine in VLC or on my WDTV, but not in Q.T. It seems very selective, sometimes it does it, then it will play just fine the next day. I have Perian installed. I have Tiger (10.4.11)

Applications :: How To Get QuickTime To Play MPEG2 Video And Audio

Nov 4, 2006

I am a new Mac user, and I bought a mac for the main purpose of video editing. However, all my files are MPEG2, and so far, I have had a very frustrating experience with trying to figure out how to play it back on Quicktime with Audio. I downloaded Pro, as well as the MPEG2 add on. It plays video fine, but can someone please tell me how to get it to play audio step by step?

Lastly, I have Final Cut and iTunes and audio won't play with the video there either. I am assuming once I have it fixed in quicktime, it will work in all other programs too?

Applications :: What The Best Codec Pack To Play Videos In Quicktime

Nov 5, 2009

I've just tried DivX for Mac [URL] but found out that it doesn't support .srt subtitles. I'm already using Flip4Mac for .wmv files, but I'm looking for a codec pack to play all other codecs like Divx, Xvid, H.264 with subtitles support for .sub and .srt files. I know that Perian is a good one, but is there anyone better?

QuickTime :: Videos Play In Slow Motion Using Quicktime 7.7 With Iphoto 08'?

Jun 18, 2012

I have several HD videos from my Sony NEX-3 camera that will not play very well from within iMovie.  They freeze up, or run in slow motion while the sound track continues without any problem.  I've seen other related comments on this forum, but no one has suggested a fix yet.  I can play my clips just fine from the finder menu using "Quick Look".  Other videos from the same camera work, what has changed?

Applications :: Srt Subtitle File Crashes In Quicktime 7.6.4?

Dec 19, 2009

I have an avi [Generic MPEG-4, 688 x 288, Millions, MPEG Layer 3, Stereo, 48.000 kHz] and a corresponding srt subtitle file.

I can open the avi in QT but only if I remove the srt from the same folder.

So the avi is good.

If I have the srt in the same folder and try to open the avi, QT crashes immediately.

Applications :: ITunes Not Allowing To Play / Add MP3 File

Sep 9, 2008

I bought an mp3 and although the file plays in QuickTime or other media programs, the mp3 will not add itself into iTunes or even play it on either a Mac or PC. I've attached my settings (Windows, but my Mac settings in iTunes are the same) and I don't know what's wrong with this file.

It's frustrating because it's just an mp3 file (from everything I gathered from the meta tags/information) and I've never had any trouble adding files into iTunes by just double clicking on them but for some reason this is different.

I have an .mpeg file that says it is 29.97 frames per second, but when ever I press play, it plays at about 23.976 frames per second. I'm trying to convert the file to an .mov file that is 23.976 fps and plays at 23.976 fps, but every time I try the result looks choppy. Does anyone know how I can convert a strange file like this to a proper, 23.976 fps file, preferably an .mov?

Applications :: Unable To Play .wmv Files / Showing Only 3 Or 4 Kb Of Original File

Jan 20, 2009

Ive noticed that a couple of websites that have only .wmv available to download movies. I am running a Mac G4 with OS Tiger and Opera/Safari/Firefox for the net. I can easily play wmv's with my QTpro and or VLC.

The movies that I typically DL are usually 300 to 400 megs. They completely DL on my browser (Opera, Safari, or Firefox) after about 10 minutes or so. However once I DL the .wmv files onto my harddrive , they show up at only about 3 or 4 kb!!?? So thats about a total of like .2 seconds of play back!!?? Therefore one second of total playback.I believe this is not an Apple vs Windows issue, but something else. Any ideas?

QuickTime :: Cannot Play .MOV

May 21, 2012

I've moved everything from my PC to Mac with no, photos, music, movies, etc.  However, there are about a half dozen .MOV files that simply won't open.  The message I receive is "The document “filename.MOV” could not be opened. The decoder required for this media cannot be found." 

I took a look at other video files I brought over from my PC and there are quite a few .MOV files that are playing just fine. why some .MOV videos are playing just fine while others aren't?  And more importantly, what do I need to do in order to get these videos to play?

I'm using Mac OS X, Version 10.7.4 and QT, Version 10.1. 

iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
