    It has been working fine for about half a year, now it has just started saying this message : Missing QuickTime Component - The QuickTime component necessary to view, edit, import, and export high-definition movies is not installed. It is included with the iMovie installer; please re-install.

    How do I re-install?

    I have installed the software "Pacifist" if thats waht you will suggest, but I have no idea where to go from installing there.

    Help!

    *FIXED* Needed to insert disk, open the "Install Ilife".pkg and click

    Contents of iLife support>Contents of apple intermediate codec>library>quicktime>apple intermediatecodec.component

    and then install that. hope this helps anyone else with the same problem!

    Hey - can you bring a little clarity in exactly how you managed to get to the file: apple intermediatecodec.component

    I can find no way to open the Install iLife.pkg file. There is no 'show package contents' or 'contents of' option when I right-click. Thanks!

    I have the same error come up since installing OS X Lion.

    Did you use Pacifist to open the "Install iLife.pkg" to install "apple intermediatecodec.component"?
