    As the title says,


    When I try to play some episodes that previously worked (I havent played them for a year or so) they fail to open in Quicktime X (with perian 1.2 installed)

    When I open the files in VLC they play as an mp3 would and I can hear tracks from my library that I recognise...

    Anyone encountered this before?




    PS: my music and video libraries are on different physical disks and the videos are not in iTunes.

    If it helps I could post a sample file on my web server for people to download and test?

    The one i would use is an episode of Robot Chicken, but I have at least 100 episodes doing this thing, although not all of my collection.

    Maybe re-install QuickTime 7 and try with Perian/Flip4Mac then?

    Hi

    Unfortunately they do the same in Quicktime 7 and also on my MBP running 10.6.3 too...

    So I guess the files are corrupted but how did it happen in that weird way??

    Was there a better forum to post this in? Perhaps I should try somewhere else?
