    Hi guys,

    I usually record videos with my digital camera, and whenever I upload other photos, the videos also import into iPhoto. This isn't an issue since I like that everything is in one place... however, for some time now, quicktime crashes about 75% of the time that I try to play one of the short videos that I took.

    Does anyone know of a fix for this, or what the real issue is? Thanks.

    iphoto/QT issue

    Saw these replys on another forum:

    I ran into the same problem (Quicktime Pro 7.13 crashing on a MacBook Pro when trying to play the movies from a Canon digital camera), and found that trashing the component "AviImporter-r7 (Intel).component" for some odd reason fixes it. Hope this helps ya'll.

    Oh super much thank you I did this and all of the sudden all my problems disappeared and I can now play my videos in quicktime and import them in iLife-apps.

    By the way if this haven't already been said, the problem lies with .avi files probably from most cameras using m-jpeg and specifically the Apple OpenDML JPEG codec.
