My Mac won't play audio AND video

I have no idea what's going on but it's starting to get very frustrating. This just started happenning today. Anytime I open a file that contains audio AND video my system studders for a second and then quits the application immediately.

This is happenning when I try and watch any type of MPEG or play a game with Audio and Video. .MOV files will play the video but with no audio?!?!

I'm really confused. Someone please help.

Sounds like your System or more specifically QuickTime is corrupted. I think you can install QuickTime separately (you'll have to find it on Apple's web site), so try that first. If that doesn't work you may have to reinstall OS X, which is a drag but might be the only way. Another remote possibility is a permissions problem; try running Repair Permissions on your startup drive in Disk Utility.

Hey, welcome to the forums Sergio!

Did your problem end up getting fixed w/o a reinstall?
