View Full Version : Videos take a long time to open after the last quicktime update

27th July 2007, 10:32 PM
Hey guys

Since I've downloaded the latest quicktime update videos are taking a very long time to open. They used to open instantly and now they take about 40 seconds (negligable difference if quicktime is already open or not).

This is with a Powermac G4 1.25Ghz with 2GB RAM running 10.4.10 and all latest updates.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Same here, I'd like to see how many are getting this issue...

On 20" iMac C2D

I get this on my intel mac mini but the MBP is fine, as the mini is my home theatre its driving me nuts, since frontrow takes ages to scroll as it needs to open files for the previews on the left.

I just posted this on the Apple support discussion board as well and will post any answers I get here.

I had this same problem so i checked some forums out and took the suggestion of upgrading perian. Since i did that everything is back to normal.

Hope this works for you guys too

I was having the same problem opening .avi's on my MBP (iMac was fine). Updating Perian seems to have fixed it.
