Hey!

Basically I can't see any Quicktime things on my computer. Adverts, videos etc. I can't even access websites that have a quicktime opening page. All I see is the faded Q with a question mark over it.

I seem to have better luck when I open the same pages in internet explorer. However some still don't work.

I have tried redownloading it, but it doesn't make a differance.


Would really appreciate if someone could help me out with this, as it's driving me up the wall!

Thanks :whistling:

You might need a media handler plugin, firefoxes biggest bother at least with me was it was incredibly fussy about some media i had a plug in that handled it most of the time when it didnt work by default but even it crashed sometimes. So switched to opera and found it handles media alot better so ive stuck with it(some other reasons as well its just better than FF in alot of ways).

I would reinstall quicktime or Quicktime alternative that comes in the Klite mega codec pack, also come with realplayer alternative ive found they work better than the real thing especially with browsers.
