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.

Download Opera or Avant browser. The Apple site uses Quicktime files on the Homepage. Your DLL files maybe corrupt and IE uses the same DLL's so it is going to crash. I would first UNINSTALL Quicktime. then try IE. If it still "encounters a problem" download Opera, it does NOT use the IE engine as does Avant. You should then be able to get the NEW version of QT
everlloyd, You have to downsize those movies for use on an iPod, it's a waste of space to put it in full size, there are some free shareware versions, quicktime Pro will but it will cost you. Also there are several movie making programs that will do it as well. You want to change you preferences for the iPod to function as a hard drive so you can store file on the iPod, it is a newer version I'm guessing with the latest software so you can play back the new movies even the ones you download from the iTunes Store. Your local Apple Store will also suggest thier favorite programs to do the job. randy320sgi
You may want to check out VLC Media Player. It is cross platform, open source and plays a greater variety of formats than quicktime (including MPEG 1 and 2); plus it is free. I highly recommend for troublesome media files.
Here's the link to the VLC webpage: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
For help with the Sony DCR-SR62 I found two links on the apple support site that detail how to get the camera to work with your mac. It appears that your camera is not fully compatible with the mac however you should be able to get the video to work if you import through imovie and follow some of the workarounds detailed in the links below.
What kind of video is being played? If its HD on an older computer it could have choppiness problems. you can try going to Applications>Utilities>Disk utility. In there, Click your startup drive, and click repair disk permissions. If that does not work, you should reinstall your operating system. I can guide you through that if necessary.
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!!
