    Hey everyone. I figured I would give this a try, and see if anyone would be willing to help me out with an issue I am having with my iMac G5 by using iChat video conferencing.

    Here is the problem:

    I have several movie files on my hard drive that will not play audio any more. There are also a couple of movies on the internet that I have come accross that will not play audio either. Most issues are with Quicktime, others with Macromedia's Flash player.

    I have no idea what is going on. I have a feeling it is related to issues I was having with iTunes 7. I have since downgraded to iTunes 6, and I did not have these audio issues before hand.

    Apple is refusing to help me with this issue, and my local Apple Store thought they had the issue fixed I was having with iTUnes 7, but they obviously didn't since I Have downgraded.

    If anyone is willing to video with me, that would be great. I feel as if that is the easiest way to figure out what is going on. I have a MacBook Pro that I would be using to get the help via iChat.

    If anyone is willing, my screen name is CoreyAtMiamiU...I am signed online now, so if you want to help, just message me.

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. I can provide more detail of things I have already done if I get any responses.

    Do the videos play Ok in VLC? Have you installed Perian? You may have simply accidently removed your codecs.

    Yes they work in VLC, and yes I have Perian installed.

    But I don't want to use VLC. And VLC doesn't solve the issues that I am experiencing on the internet.

    I wish all problems were fixed that easily.

    If you have any idea why iTunes 7 keeps crashing on my iMac (and not my MacBook Pro) that would be greatly appreciated...

    Brief description: The program crashes when switching between songs, either on its own or when I advance to the next track. It also crashes (sometimes) when first opened, and then I double click a song file. It plays about two seconds, then gone.

    I have a feeling this is simply a bug within the program, but you never know.

    Not sure what I am doing wrong, but it will not allow me to upload the iTunes.crash.log file to the forum. I'll try and save it as a .doc and see if that works.


    Edit:

    Tried that, but it says the attachment is too large. Let me know what I can do to get you the crash log.
