OS X :: Viewing Pdf Files In Browser?

Jul 6, 2010

I just switched to Mac and love it. I am curious, however, about viewing pdf files in firefox instead of opening them in preview. I really liked doing this on windows with Adobe reader, and I am curious if there is a way for Preview to display pdfs in the browser as well?

If not, is adobe reader worth installing? Or is opening Preview as a separate window with the pdf still faster than the adobe reader plugin?

QuickTime :: Viewing Avi And Wmv Files With 10.1 And OS 10.7.4?

May 15, 2012

In the last couple days, I think since I installed the last upgrade in the OS, my QT is 'unable to complete the process' of opening wmv files. Months ago, I think after I upgraded to Lion, QT stopped allowing me to view avi files.  The file opens, and I can scroll through the content, but to 'play' button doesn't work.  I can still view those files using DivX Player 8.2.2. These are all files that used to work just fine with QT.  Is there anything I can do to restore this functionality to QT?

OS X :: CPU Overload On Viewing Flv Files In Finder

Nov 2, 2009

On Snow Leopard, since 10.6 and still in 10.6.1, I've noticed too high CPU overload after I open folder which contains even one flash video (flv file - downloaded from web using firefox addon DownloadHelper). The name of process which does the overload is: QTKitServer-(243) Quick Look Helper.

This process uses almost 100% of CPU, makes it hot and often leads to black screen, when is not possible see anything, except: I can see mouse cursor, make keyboard commands but due the black screen the only solution is to turn off my MacBook 13" - alu, late 2008. If I am lucky and close Finder window very quickly, this process disappears and overload is gone. Does anybody else have same/similar problem?

OS X :: Removing Hidden Mac Files For PC Viewing?

Apr 6, 2010

So at my office we move from logic (obviously mac based workstation) to a PC workstation to upload audio files.

We've encountered a growing issue which is the hidden .DS and ._* files.

These files are hidden in every folder on mac but when we move a folder with say 100 audio files bounced from logic to a PC every audio file has a ._ alias and each folder has a .DS alias.

Right now the only way we can fix it is manually removing all the hidden files on the PC. We have tried a Terminal script that removes the ._ files but they seem to just recreate themselves.

OS X :: Viewing Files On USB Or Other External Drive - No Record?

Jun 27, 2009

If I view my porn (just be honest) on an external USB drive or some other external drive that goes through my USB port, is there any record of it after I'm done on my computer? I just want a clean computer these days because I'm not 18 anymore when it didn't matter. I don't want porn on it and assume it will not show up if I view it and then remove the USB drive? In contrast to when you view websites and it stores that stuff.

IMac :: Viewing Combined Size Of Multiple Files?

Apr 21, 2009

If I have a bunch of files and I want to see the combined size of these files, on windows I would simply mark each file, right click one of them and hit properties. If I do that on my new mac mini and then hit More Info or whatever it says, then it just opens the info window for each file - it doesn't give me one where it says the combined amount of files, size and such. Is it possible to do this somehow?

OS X :: Browser Won't Download Required Files?

Dec 12, 2009

I have a problem with my 24" Aluminium iMac (with Snow Leopard)The problem is, when I try to download something, no matter what (an app from the Apple website's download section, a torrent, a song,...) nothing happens I tried it with another browser (FireFox) and it didn't work either...I'm a little afraid that I will have to re-install Snow Leopard and lose all of my files... (Time Machine isn't configured, because I don't have an empty external hard drive...)Downloading attachments (Word files for example) in Mail, however, works fine...So when i click the download icon (of any kind) it just loads for half a second and does nothing, instead of showing the downloadscreen and starting the download

Software :: See Local HTML Files On Browser?

Oct 4, 2010

I'm new to a Mac and although I love the mac, I'm having a few issues that I simply can't figure out. trying to create a website locally that eventually I'll FTP to a live site. On the Mac I am using Safari and Firefox. When I bring up the .html file all I see is the code in those browsers. That same code on my pc brings up the website in Safari, Firefox or IE so it's not the code. I'm seeing things about a local server but don't know if that applies to me or not. In the address bar of the browser it says file:///Users/myusername/Documents/Website/TestSite.html where myusername is my actual User Name. I've also now checked web sharing and followed the directions on viewing webpages you put in your Sites folder (which is where I have overwritten the index.html file that came with the Mac) and now that doesn't work either. I'm getting a little frustrated. I'm sure this is a low level question, but I've never used a mac before so this is all new to me.

ITunes :: Why Won't IMovie Files Open In Browser

Jun 21, 2012

Ok. iMovie will ONLY save in MPEG4. Got it. Why won't the files open in a browser when trying to upload? (Even if the format is accepted) The files stay dim, as in not able to select. I've exported to YT, Vimeo, iCNN, all that is fine. I've saved the files in differernt areas - other than iTunes. iMovie help is absolutely no help at all.

Safari :: Cannot View PDF Files In Browser Directly

Jul 4, 2012

Using Safari Version 5.1.7 (6534.57.2) on OS X 10.6.8 (Macbook Air) when I click a PDF link, it is downloaded and then I need to double click to open in Preview.However, if I use the nightly build of WebKit [URL] - currently Version 5.1.7 (6534.57.2, r121825) it is opened in the same tab within the browser.I do not have Adobe Reader/Acrobat installed thus do not have the Adobe plugins in the "Internet Plugins" folder (system or user).Does the production build of Safari not have a built-in PDF viewer? Or maybe there is another reason...

Final Cut Pro X :: Organizing Projects / Files In Browser?

Dec 11, 2014

I'm trying to figure out if there is any way I can do 'organizing' in the Browser.  It would be great to be able to create folders I could drop the 'projects' or the 'files' into.  I do have my 'Library' well organized, with Keyword collections and folders. 

But.... I'm working on a large project.  Every time I add a new video or audio file to a Library (each Library has only one Event - so I can keep my Libraries relatively small) it seems I have to go digging through all the previous files to find the newly imported one.

MacBook Pro :: Downloading DMG Files Directly From Browser (Safari And FF)

Apr 6, 2009

When trying to download .dmg files through my browser (for example- when downloading the trial version of iWork on apple.com, or when trying to download the app from this site: http://postbox-inc.com/ ), my screen will usually say "thank you for downloading" or "your download will start momentarily," but the download doesn't start. I have this problem with both Safari and Firefox. Are any of you guys out there experiencing a similar problem? If so, have you been able to fix it?

I'm a new mac user and I'm totally lost when it comes to troubleshooting my problems.

I've been trying to access my iphoto application for the past couple of days and it isn't working as it should. The application is open and when I place my mouse in a corner of the screen, the iphoto screen shows up in my boxes view, but I'm unable to click on it. As soon as I click on the screen it disappears. So the application is open and the options bar appears across the top of the screen, but I'm unable to view it normally.

I recently had a High Resolution IP Camera set up at a offsite location. The company that set it up gave me an IP addresss to log in to see the pictures streaming.

Mar 30, 2010

I still use both windows and mac for various tasks.

On a PC if i want to look at a bunch of images, I can double click on one, Windows Photo Viewer pops up and I can scroll through all the images in that folder.

However on a osx, the file opens in Preview but forwards and back are greyed out, is there any way of making it work so I can scroll through my images like I can on Windows?
