Quicktime For Mac Doesnt Work

суббота 15 февраляadmin

Enter Movist, yet another Mac media player which looks and works a bit like QuickTime Player, only it does a few things QuickTime does not. Visually, Movist looks like any ordinary media player for Mac users, but there are custom themes you can install to change the look and feel. Movist lets you create movie or clip playlists. Apple provides QuickTime Player X in OS X, but Apple's older QuickTime 7. You can drag your video file to the open dialogue box, or otherwise navigate. I have found the free Mac Media Player to be exceptionally useful in.

Part1:QuickTime No Longer Working on Google Chrome

QuickTime is a media player for both PC and Mac which can also be used to record or convert media into any desired format. It works for both the desktop and your favorite browser. You can also stream media from your hard drive or directly from your favorite video website.

Google chrome allows for plugins that will enable third party programs to run well. The plug-ins can be turned on or off depending on the desired functionality. But there are some plug-ins that will make it difficult for you to use QuickTime on Google Chrome, either because the plug-in is disabled or is missing from the browser. If you are running the 64 bit version of chrome you may not be able to use QuickTime as Apple does not have a 64bit QuickTime plug-in yet.

Case : I am not able to watch videos from a site even after installing QuickTime, the QuickTime plugin is not listed in the plug-ins list.

Solved: The following is a workaround to the issue of ‘Chrome does not have the NPAPI plug-in installed’ in addition to the above problem.

To enable the plug-in do the following, follow the steps as given below.

Step 1: Launch your browser (in this case Google Chrome)

Step 2: Into the Browser’s address bar type chrome://flags/#enable-npapi as indicated in the picture given below.

Step 3: Scroll down and look for the link “Enable NPAPI” and click on it.

Step 4: Click on the Checkbox to enable it.

Step 5: Click “Relaunch Now” located at the bottom of the screen to restart your browser.

Step 6: Wait for chrome to load and then type Chrome://Plug-ins into the address bar and press Enter to go back to the plug-ins list.

Step 7: Confirm that the NPAPI plugin is added and working now.

This should enable QuickTime and it should be working now on Google Chrome for you.

Part2:QuickTime (QTPlugin.ocx) does not run in Internet Explorer

QTPlugin.ocx is a file developed by apple computers for the windows operating system to work with QuickTime. This plugin enables you to play embedded video on a webpage. A video may fail to play or load if QuickTime loads a corrupt QTPlugin or the Plugin is missing.

Case: I am using Windows 8 with the latest Internet Explorer version and QuickTime player installed, every time I click “Play Video” I get the error message saying “please install QuickTime”.

Solved: You either need to check if you are using the latest QuickTime or if the QTPlugin is enabled or not.

Step 1: Check if the plugin is enabled or not. Follow these steps for that.

Step 2: Open Internet Explorer and head on to the tools menu.

Step 3: Click on ‘Manage add-ons’.

Step 4: On the ‘Managed add-ons’ window, look for QuickTime and enable it.

This should fix the problem, but just in case it doesn’t, follow the next set of steps to reinstall QuickTime on your computer.

Reinstall QuickTime

This guide will work just fine with Windows 10 computer, however if you are using any other version of Windows or perhaps Mac, simply follow the main steps and it should be fine.

Step 1: Press the Windows key or move your cursor to the bottom left hand of your screen and then click on the Windows icon.

Step 2: Now, type in ‘Control Panel’ in the section Search Windows. Windows will now automatically search for the Control Panel and list it as the Best match as seen in the screenshot given below. Click on the option of Control Panel from this list.

Step 3: Once you are on the Control Panel window, look for the option that says Programs and Features, once found, click on it.

Step 4: From the list of programs that will appear on the next screen, find QuickTime and right click on it. From the drop down menu, select Uninstall to uninstall the QuickTime app from your computer.

Step 5: Now, follow the on-screen directions to complete the un-installation of your QTPlugin.ocx associated program.

Step 6: Download QuickTime from Apple Store, here is the link: https://support.apple.com/downloads/quicktime

Step 7: Double click on the downloaded file to install the newly downloaded application.

Step 8: Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

That’s it, now your media files should be playing in Internet Explorer after the installation is successfully over.

Part 3:QuickTime not working in Firefox

QuickTime may fail to work on Firefox because the browser may fail to register the MIME types needed for the MIDI playback. Another reason why your videos won’t play on Firefox Browser is because of a missing QuickTime plugin most likely. Sometimes the QuickTime files may fail to be handled by QuickTime player.

Case: How to remove the “question mark” whenever you try to play a video on Firefox, or when it plays the video without an audio when using QuickTime.

Solved: Here are the steps you need to follow in order to fix the above issue.

Step 1: Open your browser (Firefox in this case), we recommend that you download the latest version from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/.

Step 2: Take your cursor to the top right hand side of the screen and then click on the Menu icon, as shown in the picture given below, and click on the tab Options.

Step3: Then go to the Applications tab on the left hand side of the screen and then select the option of ‘Use QuickTime Plugin (in Firefox)’ every content type associated with movies and videos. See the picture given below on how to do it.

This should enable the option of playing videos via QuickTime on Mozilla Firefox.

Alternatively: In the event that the plugin is disabled, follow the steps as given to below to enable it.

Step 1: Click on the menu icon on the top right corner of the browser and choose ‘Add-ons’ tab.

Step 2: Then select the Plugins panel and scroll down to find QuickTime in the list of plugins. Once found, simply select the option of Always Activate as shown in the screenshot given below.

Apple provides you with a number of media-handling options in OS X, with QuickTime being the core service for displaying video; however, there will likely be times when you have downloaded a video file that simply will not play in QuickTime. Even if the document looks like a QuickTime file, when opening it you may receive an error that prevents you from viewing its contents.

There are several ways to get around this issue if you run into it, and since it is so prominent, I recommend you keep at least a few of these around on your system to handle odd media files you might encounter.

Use another player

VLC offers numerous options for viewing and handling media files.

The first option is to use another media player. Apple provides QuickTime Player X in OS X, but Apple’s older QuickTime 7 has some additional capabilities that did not make it into the latest QuickTime Player version. Therefore, download QuickTime 7 and see if it will handle your media. This is especially true for some Quicktime VR files, and MIDI files, as well as interactive movies.

While QuickTime 7 will cover a few additional formats, your best bet for handling most media is to use either VLC or MplayerOSX Extended, both of which offer far more flexibility in their support for codecs and file formats. In most cases, if a video will not play in QuickTime then it will play in one of these players, and if not then the video is likely corrupted. Both of these players are free, so give them a shot.

Convert it

Handbrake offers a number of (well documented) settings, or you can select from the presets on the right.

While third-party media players are convenient, sometimes you might need to embed a video in a Keynote presentation or otherwise use it in ways where a third-party media player might be a touch cumbersome. To do this, you can try a number of transcoders, but a free and robust one that I recommend is Handbrake, which can read many input file formats and then output them as an MP4 (M4V) or MKV format. Often videos you encounter might be in MKV format, and you can use Handbrake to convert them to M4V so they can be easily dragged into a Keynote or other document, or opened with QuickTime.

To do this, download Handbrake and when you open it you will be presented with a dialogue for selecting a video file of choice. You can drag your video file to the open dialogue box, or otherwise navigate to it, and then open it. From here Handbrake will process the file and determine if it can be read, and then you can select your output file format and click Start to convert it. Handbrake has a number of settings and presets for managing your video conversion, with great documentation for what each setting does, so the conversion can be as easy or as technical as you want.

With these two options, you should be able to view most video files that you encounter in OS X; however, there may be plenty of others you can try as well. Do you have a favorite media player or two? If so, post them below in the comments.
