Software :: WMV Not Playing / Showing Message Movie Couldn't Be Opened

Aug 29, 2010

I have a few wmv vids on my mac. Up until recently they were all fine. When I went into the folder the all files showed the Qicktime logo on them and played using flip4mac. Now the files are just white with no logo on them and when I click to play one it brings up the message "This movie could not be opened, The file is not a movie file." I have tried reinstalling flip4mac and quicktime but I still have the same issue. Someone told me to try perian but still nothing. I am guessing this is a problem with the files but not sure how this happened or how to fix it.

OS X :: Unable To Save Movie / Movie Playing In Web Browser

Mar 21, 2010

I have Snow Leopard installed with the latest Quicktime.

When viewing a movie file in my browser in Leopard, I was able to right click on it and save a copy to my desktop/computer. Now, I can't seem to enable this option...I have no way of saving a movie to my computer. Am I missing something? How does one do this now, do I need to click on a specific spot?

OS X :: Playing A Movie As My Morning Alarm?

Oct 8, 2009

I currently use "Alarm Clock 2" as my morning alarm and it's great cause it allows me to choose any song, or audiobook as my morning alarm...however can't choose any films.

I'd love to wake up every morning to one of my files on my Movies folder, or even iTunes movies Folder, or even Podcasts...

How can I achieve this?

I would absolutely love it if I can choose one of my Arrested Development episodes on my movies folder on my Mac to wake me up in the mornings...

QuickTime :: Error -2002: A Bad Public Movie Atom Was Found In The Movie

Jun 11, 2012

Okay, so I am here at work, and have spent the last 4-5 hours trying to resolve this issue, and cannot find any working solutions for it on the internet. We have .3gp recordings. All of a sudden, we started getting this error on some of our computers.  Example: I want to play test.3gp; I try to open test.3gp in QuickTime, and I get an error that reads... 

"Error -2002: A bad public movie atom was found in the movie:test.3gp" But when I go to play test2.3gp, it plays fine. This issue varies from computer to computer. I get this error on all three of my machines. 2 Windows 7 64bit, and 1 Windows 7 32bit. My colleague and boss can play test.3gp fine through QuickTime on their computers. One is Windows 7 64bit the other is 32bit. 

Anyone know some causes of this and hopefully a way to solve it? I tried cleaning up registry errors, running as administrator, updating, reinstalling... Nothing is working.

ITunes :: Rented Movie Does Not Start Playing

Apr 24, 2012

I just rent a movie via iTunes. It said the movie was ready to be played although it is still downloading so I wanted to start playing. My Problem is, that the movie does not start. It is stuck on a black screen. If I move the slider on bottom I can see pictures of parts of the movie that have already been loaded. But I cannot start playing them as a film.

Same thing with Trailers in the Store. iTunes was updated yesterday and also Quicktime is up to date and I also tried the repair function of it. Running Win 7 Professional, 64 bit. Because the rental period now expires in 48 hours (because I clicked on "play movie"). As a "workaround" I tried to play the Movie on my MacBook Pro but it says the rented film is now been authorised to my PC.

OS X :: Smoother Movie File Playback

Sep 6, 2009

I've seen lots of TV sets lately that take a video signal and create intermediate frames giving a super smooth playback. My TV (connected to my Macbook for watching films) doesn't do this, and I was wondering if there's any software etc that can emulate this effect. I'm mostly playing back HD content in .mkv files using VLC. I have the Macbook connected to the HDTV via HDMI cable, running at 1920x1080 @ 24hz.

ITunes :: Sharing The Movie File On Two Ipods?

Mar 31, 2012

i thinking of using two ipods on one itunes because my movies are stuck to my itunes music files.  

itunes music file has a movies file that you can't seem to move. movies are mixed in with music files.  

this all started because brian wanted to share some of my movies. because it's stuck to my itunes music i'm not sure how to do this.  

before i had brian on another account on my imac.  

i could try and switch my movies file to shared, but i have no luck with switching files to shared.  

can i use one itunes and specify different file locations for each ipod? and have both ipods use my movie file which is mixed in with my music file without trouble?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), iMac i3 21.5
