    I haven't run my updates in some time... recently updated quicktime, and now I can't see the video on any movies. It just looks like this. I removed my Uno skin before running the update... applying and removing it seem to do nothing at this point. I also have Perian and Flip4Mac. Any thoughts on the culprit? Also, I forget how to reapply an update.

    No thanks I use both. Not quite the answer I was looking for.

    Have you tried removing Perian and Flip4Mac then reinstalling them? They might be out of date with your latest version of Quicktime.

    try this

    Open Quicktime 7
    Click on Edit tab and go to preference,
    then click on Quicktime Preference.
    One that opens click on Advanced tab
    You will see a selection for video or direct X.
    Click on Safe mode (GDI only)
    Then click on Apply, then OK.
    Restart Quicktime and play a movie to test.

    So far they are removed... haven't bothered reinstalling.

    Anybody know the sequence to 'redo' a software update?

    the most recent version of flip4mac has some weird interactions with either the newest version of safari and/or quicktime.

    the problem was mainly playing wmv videos in safari, but apparently quicktime was goofed as well.

    i just downgraded my flip4mac, but haven't tested enough to know if this fixed it (or if it is even the same problem you were having)

    Thanks guys- I just reinstalled straight from Apple.com and at the very least standard mp4 playback is fixed.
