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....

    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.

    Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things. Main reason is simply, that MP2 is not developed based on MP1. I for example never used MP1. I tried it lately to test voice control and was shocked about many inconsistancies in...

    So the GT 1030 is ~AU$120 and the GTX 1650 ~AU$260 (based on my local store). Which, surprisingly for Australia, is just about bang-on the conversion rate. :) Cheers.
