    Quicktime problem

    zogster
      I'm having trouble with Quicktime playback in a Director project for CD-ROM. Some QT clips are showing playback problems, specifically thath they start playing OK, then at some point the csreen goes green, and audio stutters. We've tried lowering data rates, trying different formats, but no joy - the clips are fairly small in any case, being 400x270 in dimensions, and the test systems fairly high-spec.

      The problem only manifests itself on Windows, and not on all Windows systems. It does not seem to be related to problems in the media, as different clips show the problems if they are played in a different order.

      Does anyone have an idea what might be going on?

          What codec are you using?

          What's common between the pc's it's not working on? Low Ram? QT version?

          Have you put in any "unload"s?

          Run the windows task manager, (cntrl-alt-del) then switch to Processes, sort
          by Mem Usage, and watch your director app's mem usage and see if it keeps
          growing and dies when it gets to a certain size.

          Sometimes going into the control panel and switch QT to Safe Mode will solve
          the stuttering you mentioned, but that's only usefull for specific
          deliveries like a kiosk, or laptop presentation.
