When I try to play downloaded movies in different formats such as AVI and MP4 .... it tells me that I dont have the proper "codex".¬† I have been to the support link it sends me but all the other downloads will not able me to play movies...
I am now having problems playing SD movies across all my applications, they look pixillated. I never had this problem until I updated to 10.6.4. I didn't update iTunes and was/am afraid to do any more updates.
I'm trying to play movies that I've downloaded from Frostwire and every time they open up in Quick Time it says is update is needed and a blank safari page opens. Probably should mention this is my first Mac and I've had it for a total of 6 hours.
I am running Snow Leopard and have QT 7 and QT X installed... Ever since I got my Mac last year I have had problems with Quicktime movies paying in Firefox (I've tolerated it thus far, but am now wanting to fix it). Movies tend to play "okay" if I don't touch the controller (pause, scrub ff, rw), but if I do, the movie lags and bogs down Firefox until it becomes unstuck. I often times can't even close the tab until it becomes unstuck. The same movies in Safari don't do this and play fine. Anyone else experience this? I've noticed Safari uses the Quicktime X style controller and Firefox uses the old style - is there any way to force Firefox to use the newer style/plugin? Please don't respond with "Well, why don't you just use Safari, then." My answer is: "because it lacks the add-ons I want to use."
I recently got a Macbook pro OS X Lion and for the past few months have had problems with trying to run movies on Quicktime 10.1. My videos files are usually .AVI but when I try to click on it quick time opens and then tells me that it can't read the file. I've search the internet for answer and have tried a lot of different solutions that others have had success on (including updating Perian and trying to convert the .AVI file to .MOV) yet I still have had no such luck.
Info: MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3), Quicktime 10.1
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?
When I play movies using QuickTime player, I see the picture but hear no sound. The sound will appear for about two seconds and then cut off completely. I don't understand what is causing this problem and I have tried to update it with no avail.
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?
I have an external drive to store all my movies since I have no room on my iMac. I'd also like to watch my movies on other computers and I was wondering if there's a movie player that can be installed on the external drive to watch some movies like (.mkv) and so on.
Everytime i try to open my 'Movies' folder within my finder, finder crashes and restarts. I can still find the files and open them by spotlight searching.¬†Im running a Macbook Pro with with 10.7.4?¬†¬†

I purchased a movie from Itunes and it tells me that I cannot play the movie because the computer is not authorized. It then tells me to download Itune 4 or beter. The computer is authorized and I am running Itunes 10.6.† I am using X 10.5.8
Digital movies play just fine on my camera, a NIkon Coolpix but once I import them to either quicktime or windows media player they do not play smoothly. Any ideas why or what I can do to correct this?
Info: quicktime or windows media player , Windows XP, camera digital films won't play
I can access my music, books, and apps libraries just fine. When I click on Movies or TV Shows libraries, iTunes quits unexpectedly. This has been happening for a few weeks, but I don't remember when I last updated iTunes. Currently, 10.6 is installed. I am assuming that this problem originated with my update to iTunes 10.6.
I can't open quicktime player. I just downloaded the newest free version from the apple site. When I click open it says "could not open because the specified format is not supported" I think that is a problem with what opens it? Everything is set to open with Textedit, I don't remember how or why. How can I get quicktime to open?
I have a few h.264 -mp4/m4v files that QTX can't open, but Quickview and QT7 handles with ease. The files have been made using Handbrake.†Examining the info windows in QT7 on one movie that does work and one that does not, does not tell me much. they seem pretty identical.†Info copied from opened files in QT7.
