    New to the forums, hope this is the right place to post.
    I'm trying to play movies that I've downloaded from Frostwire and every time they open up in Quick Time it says is update is needed and a blank safari page opens.
    Am I doing something wrong?

    Probably should mention this is my first Mac and I've had it for a total of 6 hours lol

    If the movies are files you've downloaded legally, someone might be able to help you if you post more details (file types, version of QT and Safari you're running etc).

    If however you are asking for help with movies under copyright that you've downloaded without paying for them, we can't help - that kind of thing isn't permitted here.

    Get VLC. That solves all playback problems.

    Else you have to find correct codecs for Quicktime which is annoying. You have to even pay for some codecs. So best solution is VLC which is free.
