Try opening Safari and seeing if it works in there. If so, its firefox. if not, its quicktime. Try deleting the preferences for quicktime. in the finder go to: *your user folder*>Preferences>com.apple.quicktimeplayer.plist, com.apple.quicktime.plugin.preferences.plist.

Solving Problems with Streaming Services

If the Server Does Not Start Up or Quits Unexpectedly:

  • Check the error log.
  • Make sure the QuickTimeStreamingServer file is in the /usr/sbin/ folder.

    You must be logged in to the server computer as Administrator (root) to see the QuickTimeStreamingServer file in the Workspace Manager.
  • Use the Mac OS X Server Setup Assistant to reconfigure the Ethernet ports.
If Media Files Do Not Stream Properly:
  • Check the error log.
  • Make sure the movie file is supported by the QuickTime Streaming Server. Check the list of compatible file formats.
  • Try streaming a sample movie to see if the server can stream it. You can download a sample prehinted movie from the Apple Software Updates Web site: http://www.apple.com/swupdates

    If the server streams the sample movie, the problem you're having may be with the way your movie file is prepared. Recreate the movie.

    If the sample movie doesn't stream, the problem you're having may be with the server computer or the network.
  • Try hinting the movie again with the Optimize Hints For Server option selected.
  • Check streaming server activity and if necessary, reduce the number of connections or throughput.
  • If the problem occurs on a Mac OS client computer, open the TCP/IP control panel on the client computer and make sure MacIP is not selected.
  • If the problem occurs on a client computer, make sure the user has the appropriate settings in the Streaming Proxy and Streaming Transport panels of the QuickTime Settings control panel. The administrator for the client computer's network should be able to provide the correct settings.
  • If the problem occurs for media streamed using PlaylistBroadcaster, try hinting the movies again with the RTP Payload Encoding set to QuickTime and Smooth Data Rate enabled.
  • If you are reflecting more than one live stream, make sure each stream uses a separate UDP port. Otherwise client computers will show a message with error 500. You set up ports in the relay configuration file.

If Streaming Service is Slow:
  • If you are streaming QuickTime movies, make the movies self-contained using your authoring application, and make sure hinting is optimized for streaming services.
  • Reduce the maximum number of connections or the throughput.
  • Turn off other services.
  • Place media files on other hard disks to improve server performance.

    Because QuickTime Streaming Server can use only one media folder, you need to create links from the folder you have selected in QuickTime Streaming Admin to the media files on other hard disks. To do so:

    In the Workspace Manager, press the Control key and drag the folders that contain the media from the other disks to the folder you have selected as the media folder.

How to convert Blu-ray and DVD movies to QuickTime Player compatible format on...



bdrippermac_quicktime_20100430.jpg

Apple has detailed it clearly on its official site that QuickTime will attempt to open files with file extensions associated with audio or video formats listed as below:

Video formats:
QuickTime Movie (.mov), MPEG-4 (.mp4, .m4v), MPEG-1, 3GPP, 3GPP2, AVI, DV

Audio formats:
iTunes Audio (.m4a, .m4b, .m4p), MP3, Core Audio (.caf), AIFF, AU, SD2, WAV, SND, AMR

More than that, QuickTime can play movies using the following codecs:

Video Codecs:
MPEG-4 (Part 2), H.264, H.263, H.261, Apple ProRes, Apple Pixlet, Animation, Cinepak, Component Video, DV, DVC Pro, Graphics, Motion JPEG, Photo JPEG, Sorenson Video 2, Sorenson Video 3

Audio Codecs:
AAC (MPEG-4 Audio), HE-AAC, Apple Lossless, MP3, AMR Narrowband, MS ADPCM, QDesign Music 2, Qualcomm PureVoice (QCELP), IMA 4:1, MACE 3:1, MACE 6:1, ALaw 2:1, ULaw 2:1, 24-Bit Integer, 32-Bit Integer, 32-Bit Floating Point, 64-Bit Floating Point

Obviously, Blu-ray (.m2ts) and DVD (.vob) are out of the above mentioned range. Even though you purchase QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component from online Apple Store and install it on your Mac, it is still unable to play commercial DVDs (such as Hollywood movies), because they are usually encrypted with special CSS anti-piracy technology, not to mention the much more strictly protected Blu-ray movies. However, that doesn’t means you are totally banned to watch Blu-ray and DVD movies in QuickTime. Actually, an available Blu-ray and DVD ripper for Mac will definitely do you a favor to remove copy protections, and rip the movies to a Mac QuickTime Player compatible format. Go to find a step-by-step tutorial about how to convert Blu-ray and DVD movies to Mac QuickTime Player supported format.

The decryption software we recommended is Pavtube Blu-Ray DVD Ripper for Mac. It is an independent and professional utility to rip both Blu-ray discs and general DVDs to your wanted HD or SD media formats. With full Blu-ray disc support, it is able to remove copyright protections of your BD disc, no matter BD+, or AACS, even the latest MKB V17 is supported as well. See the detailed tutorial as below.

Step 1: Free download, install and launch this blue ray ripper Mac.
Once you run it, click "BD/DVD Folder" or "IFO File" to load your BD or DVD files.

bdrippermac_total_20100430.jpg

Step 2: Select H.264 Video (*.mp4) as output format for QuickTime
Follow "Common Video" > "H.264 Video (*.mp4)":
bdrippermac_format_20100430.jpg

Step 3: Click "Settings" button to adjust video and audio parameters
Notice that which parameter to select has close relationship with the hardware configurations of your computer, so before your adjustment, read the following info attentively.

To play HD video, a large amount of data must be processed by your computer. A powerful system will deliver the best playback quality.
Recommended hardware configurations for H.264 HD playback on Macintosh:

For 1280x720 (720p) video at 24-30 frames per second:
[*]1.8 GHz PowerMac G5 or 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo or faster Macintosh computer

[*]At least 256MB of RAM
[*]64 MB or greater video card

For 1920x1080 (1080p) video at 24 frames per second:
[*]Dual 2.0 GHz PowerMac G5 or 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo or faster Macintosh computer
[*]At least 512MB of RAM
[*]128MB or greater video card

Now you are ready to set advanced settings according to the hardware configurations of your computer. Our computer satisfies the above mentioned "1280x720 (720p) video at 24-30 frames per second", so we changed the settings as below:

bdrippermac_settings_20100430.jpg

Step 4: Click "Convert" button to start Mac Blu-ray ripping.
Once the ripping task is completed, you can click "Open" button to get the output H.264 .mp4 videos for your QuickTime Player effortlessly. Have fun.

G4 17" Powerbook. DVD PROBLEM. I


Restart your computer after you are done exporting a project and burning it to a DVD. For some odd reason the whole computer lags after exporting/rendering projects. Same thing happens to me when I do video editing/special effects work.
Once you have restarted your computer, try watching the DVD again. If the problem still persists, try using a different codec when you export the FCP project as a SELF-CONTAINED movie and make sure to RE-COMPRESS ALL FRAMES if the problem still persists.

Every time I try to play a youtube video, a message pops up saying Firefox has encountered a problem and has to close.


There are three possibilities.

Make sure FireFox is fully updated
From the menu at the top of the browser goto Help > Check for updates

Make sure you have all the essential media codec's:

http://download.cnet.com/Windows-Essentials-Media-Codec-Pack/3000-2140_4-10662709.html

Ensure that you have updated both Flash and Quicktime Player
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/?promoid=BUIGP
http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/

If all else fails:
Uninstall Firefox and Re-install with a newly downloaded installer file at the Firefox site.

QuickTime Troubleshoot


I am having a 'problem' installing iTunes v8 - the install seems to go ok until I get to the part of the program which invokes the Quicktime software upload (v7.5).
Although I don't get a 'controlled' Error message, I am advised that
"A newer version of Quicktime is installed on your computer - Quicktime needs to close" a message then appears telling me that iTunes install has failed as "iTunes needs QuickTime" - no **** sherlock!!
Try as I might I am unable to get past this problem - can anyone out there advise me ?

I have uninstalled until I am blue in the face using all teh standard solutions i.e Regedit, MSConfig, removed Temp Files in Docs & Settings etc etc. To my mind there is still part of the system that has nested a piece of Quicktime code that is screwing up the install.

This is doing my head in and I have 2 iPods that requirev v8 that I cannot use!!

Internet for Dell PC Desktop


Seems like your Internet Explorer software is messed up somehow. There are a million possibilities of what could be wrong. I recommend instead for you try out Mozilla Firefox. It is an alternative to Internet Explorer and it is free. You can download it at www.firefox.com. When you go to youtube and play a movie in firefox the first time it may ask you to install flashplayer.

Hope this helped
