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
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.
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?

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 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?
Can i play 3d movies on my macbook pro? I was considering buying a 3d tv which i would like to plug into the macbook pro as a second screen. I have an hd tv as my secondary screen at present with the connection for that purchased from the mac store.
I have quite a lot of movies that will play off my hard drive and through my MBP. However, most will not play on my iPhone or via my TV even though as far as I can see they're in the same format. Wall-E will play, 27 dresses wont
I have hundreds of .avi movies on my computer and play them through vlc. I would like to put them in itunes to organize them but handbraking them would take years, and I have them on an external drive and putting them in itunes would add them to my computer's hd.
I just want to organize all my movies (mp4's, .avi's, etc..) even if it means just seeing a poster of each in a thumbnail instead of just seeing a title with the same .avi icon. I would love to change a thumbnail in finder to a movie poster but I don't think it is possible.
I have seen apps like yFlicks and Movie Jukebox but they don't play .avi's and they aren't what I'm looking for.
I just purchased an Apple ATI Radeon 5770 Graphic Card Upgrade and installed on my Mac Pro (Early 2008) system with a 30" Cinema Display. I had no problems installing the card and there appears to be no problems with the graphics except I can no longer view any of the HD movies that I purchased from iTunes over the last few years. I receive an error that my monitor does not support HDCP. All of the ITunes HD movies and TV programs were viewed without problems with the nVidia 8800GT that came with the system was installed. Apple provided no notice that purchasing a graphic card upgrade would also need to replace my 30" Cinema Display to view the HD movies that I had purchased through iTunes. I had planned to purchase a new display later this year.
