I get a memory defination error :?: :!: :?: , - a problem that Microsoft say they are looking into, when i try to seek "Web help"

I have tried to install QT Alternative without the player that it came with, and also with, but nomatter what, it will not play....

In the MediaPlayer that came with the QT Alternative it play MOV files without any problems.... :cry:

    Hi,

    hmm. Not much that i can tell. I do not use MOV files often, but those i did test, worked on my machine with Quicktime Alternative in WMP.

    Which version of QTA do you use?

    Any url to a sample, that causes problems?

    Hi there.....

    Thanks for the answer.....

    I have just uploaded a sample, it is about 400kb......

    I Use QTA 1.6, from the link you gave me, as my version was older....

    Btw: The error i recive from WMP 10 is:
    "Der kan ikke tildeles hukommelse, da der ikke er defineret nogen størrelse."

    I´ll try to translate that :wink: :
    "There can not be given any memory, as the amount is not defined"

    Ok, i´m lost here..... :D

    With the information that ti works for other people, i thought hey, i´ll try to find out what codec causes the problem, so i have now uninstalled all codec´s from the PC, QTA, RMA, Xvid, GPL, MPEG1/2, AVI and InterVideo.
    Leaving only FFDshow in the PC together with PowerDVD 6 software.

    And after a reboot i would try to see that WMP10 still didn´t work, and then go from there, but guess what, now WMP10 plays QuickTime .MOV files without any problems at all..... :?
    Not even the icons are shown correct on the PC, and no play´er is assigned for .MOV files, but they work fine in WMP10...... :roll:

    So now i don´t know why, but hey that don´t really matter right now.....
    (I kan think about why it works an other time.... :wink: )

    I got a simple answer:

    Install Quicktime 7.01
    Install Quicktime ALternative

    Now, QT alternative warns that QT is installed, continue, and install ONLY the Directshow filter for QT movies.

    And voila, I can view .mov in Media Portal, HD 720p files. I got a AMD 3200+ and a 720P gives me a 75% cpu load

    This might be my solution needed also. I will need to try this later tonight.
