Help! Quicktime weirdness!
Any thoughts?

I've got Quicktime 5 installed on my new iBook and I'm suddenly having this strange problem. It seemed to happen overnight... I go to double click a QT movie file and QT displays a little box with an icon that looks like a QT extension that says:

"Converting xxxxxx from Quicktime Movie to Unknown format"

Then a grey bars shows that it's converting the movie and the file opens as a sound file, and not a movie.

I've dumped QT and reinstalled it, and I've gotten rid of the prefs. Is there anything more I can do? I ran a confict test with Confict Catcher and the problem lies in QT somewhere. Is there a setting that got changed that I missed?

Thanks in advance (this is driving me crazy)
:confused:

You mihgt check your File Exchange CP to see if there's something odd in the QuickTime formats.

First, try trashing QT prefs and reboot. If that doesn't work:

Try download the quicktime installer from www.apple.com/quicktime. Then, erase all traces of quicktime off of your hard drive. Reboot. Afterwards, reinstall QT. This will most likely fix the problem.
