    You need to install Quicktime 7 via the option located in your Utilities folder or off of the Snow Leopard DVD.

    Flip4Mac is sketchy with QuickTime X. Try deselecting the option to "Launch QuickTime Player" in the Browser tab of the Flip4Mac preference pane.

    Another WMV question...

    Prior to SL, when I'd open a WMV file, the entire movie would be available to me. I could immediately scrub through to any point. Now, with both QTX and QT7 it's as if I have to wait for the movie to buffer - even though it's a local file.

    Just curious

    How about the option to "Open local files immediately" in the Player tab of the F4M preference pane?

    Thanks, I'll take another look at that. I thought that was checked. The pref pane was one of the first pages I looked when this started. :p
