QuickTime :: Player Seem To Enlarge Smaller Movies To ~480 Pixels Wide On Playback?

Apr 16, 2012

QuickTime Player (we have version 10.1) seems to play movies at a minimum movie size of 480 pixels wide. Smaller movies (say 80, 200, etc. pixels wide) get enlarged to 480 pixels wide when played, making them blurry. Movie Inspector confirms the original size of these movies (of various formats) and that the current player window size is 480 pixels wide. They can't be viewed any smaller (either by the window resize handle or from the View menu).We frequently make moves from slices through small sub-volumes of 3D reconstructions and it doesn't seem that this latest version of QuickTime Player can be used to view these small-sized movies any longer. Am I missing a preference or checkbox somewhere in QuickTime Player?

MacBook Pro :: QuickTime X Video Pauses During Playback

Aug 29, 2009

I'm trying to figure this out and I've gone through 'Energy Saver' settings and turned off 'Put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible' but sometimes - not reliably, playback of a video file just pauses and then resumes as normal after about 10 seconds. It happened just the same with QT and Perian under Leopard and now happens in Snow Leopard too. Similarly, this sort of oddness happens with playback on VLC too.

Applications :: ITunes Movies Won't Playback - Black Screen?

Feb 1, 2010

It seems a whole section of my 350+ movies in my iTunes have all of a sudden stopped playing back. These are movies that played back perfectly just a few days ago but now only display a black screen with the timeline ticking away as if it was playing. All these movies were ripped from DVD's and converted using Handbrake.

Has this happened to anyone else? I think its some type of file corruption but I can't imagine what caused it. What makes it strange is that it only happened to a section of movies and not one common trait can be found among them.

I've done a bit of googling and mroogling and haven't been able to find a solution let alone another user have the same problem.

Any ideas? I have all the video_ts folders backed up so I just need to encode them again, but I would like to prevent this from happening again.

QuickTime :: Different Echo On Audio Playback QT 10.1?

Mar 13, 2012

i have been making backup QT movies of a whole bunch of Beta SP tapes using an AJA Ki Pro to record ProRes 422 files.  I have used QT7pro to trim these movies and add metadata.  Played back on QT7 (7.6.6) they sound find but playing the same movie on QT player 10.1 there is an echo on the audio as if one track has been knocked back about 6 or 7 frames. Using QT7 to set Ch1 and 2 to mono or stereo makes no difference, just spaces the echo out.

MacBook Pro :: Record Parts Of Movies With Quicktime On I5?

Jun 22, 2012

I love the options Quicktime offers me in screen recording. Before I went over to the "Mac-Side" I played around with different Windows-based screen recording software but couldnt find any that offered seamless recording. Quicktime gives me just that. My problem, however, is this. Whenever I try to record a movie or video clip with screen recording, all I can see of the video is a bunch of white and grey blocks. Is there an option I need to click or a specific resolution I need to record in so I can clip parts of videos?

Intel Mac :: Quicktime Playback Distortion On Some Mp4 Files?

May 10, 2012

I am having a problem playing some mp4 files through Quicktime. When the video is played in Quicktime (or Pro Presenter 4), portions of the video turn into distorted white blocks that move with the video. It doesn't continue throughout the whole video, but I can't discern when or why it only affects certain portions. It does it every time at those places in the video. I downloaded VLC, and the same exact file plays perfectly fine in VLC and on other computers through various programs. I have only seen this problem on this computer. 

Is this a codec issue? How do I fix it? The files in question are mp4 files using h.264 video and AAC audio at 1920x1080 resolution. I can play other mp4s using h.264 and AAC without any problems. 

I have only had this problem with one of the companies that we periodically hire to produce videos for us. I'm guessing that it has something to do with the way he encoded the video, but I have no idea what the problem is. It's probably not his fault if it only distorts on this one computer. 

Here is what the white block distortion looks like:

QuickTime :: Full Screen Playback Only On Main Display?

Mar 30, 2012

I noticed that after upgrading to Lion quicktime player won't play movies full screen on my second display.  Under Snow Leopard if the quicktime window was on the second display and you hit full screen it would fill the display is was on.  Now the video slides to the main display and then goes full screen.  There doesn't seem to be any way to change that behavior.  There are no preferences.   

The only work around is to move the menu bar in the display preferences to the second menu, so that the second monitor becomes the main one.

Applications :: Exporting To Quicktime From Keynote - Video Playback Stops?

Nov 26, 2009

I am running a Macbook 2.4GHz with 4GB of RAM and Snow Leopard.

I have an issue using Keynote 09.

I have created a presentation that has a m4v video playing in the background.

The video was the first thing I put in and was just placed on the slide and set to play when the presentatation starts.

The video starts at the beginning automatically and plays for the entirity of the presentation. The presentation is only 2 mins long. Over it are a number of different words all with various animations. There is also a music file playing in the background.

I have then recorded the show with manual timings and now when I play it in Keynote it runs smoothly from start to finish. The video continues to play and the transitions are smooth.

HOWEVER, when I then try and export the presentation as a Quicktime file I encounter a problem. The video starts initially at the beginning of the presentation but the minute any other animation kicks in the video freezes and does not restart. I have tried a large variety of export settings but to no avail. I have also spent time trawling the internet to try and solve this problem but no solution found.

It is very frustrating. I need to export it because I need it as a movile file rather than a keynote presentation.

Final Cut Studio :: When Export Sequence Edited With QuickTime / Playback Video Different On Timeline

Nov 30, 2014

Specs: IOS 10.6.8
Processor 2.4GHz Intel Core i5
Memory 4GB 1333 MHz DDR3 -- Everything is edited, sourced, and stored on an 2TB external hard drive to make things go faster.
Editing with FCP 7 

When I export the sequence I edited with quicktime, the playback video is very different from what I edited on the timeline. The playback has the clips with ins and outs that are way off than what I cut, and some of the clips don't show at all or have changed transitions. However when I play in the timeline in FCP, the sequence is fine, just the way I cut it.

The source of the clips was one long .mov that I cut into clips for the timeline. Everything has gone smoothly but the exported .mov is just so different. How can I get the time codes of the clips to be the same in the exported .movs? I just want the quicktime .mov to represent my edit exactly. can I play within the FCP player window and Log and Capture?
