I am having the same problems. I bought the new version of Director because of the advertised integration with H264, but when I play a cast member from the cast or on the stage I receive a fatal error.
Has anyone had any problems using H264 video in Director 11.5? I am using H264 quicktimes exported out of Apple Final Cut Pro. I've created a test project with 3 Adobe Photoshop graphics and an H264 video. Sometimes I can import the video, sometimes Director crashes. Even on those occasions I've been able to import the video, many times once I save the project I will not be able to re-open it. I get a "Director has exerienced a fatal error and will close" error.
Things seem to be much more stable with quicktimes encoded in Sorenson 3 or encoded with MP4. I've even re-encoded the H264 video through Premiere Pro CS4 thinking it might be something out of FCP but still have the same problem.
I have confirmed I have the most up-to-date version of Quicktime (7.6.5) and have re-installed Director 11.5.
Any one else experiencing this?

I have been using H264 on the Mac with D11.5 with no issues, does the files crash when playing in QT, also what is the playback like through VLC player
I've long since moved on since that post. Still use director, however I've avoided H264
video. At the time, I simply moved to a different codec. Yes, the files played fine in quicktime.
