View Full Version : Quicktime doesn't show movie trailors

When I try to watch movie trailors on the internet using quicktime I get a small download first (about 120k) then Quicktime opens up and when I click on the play button the slider in the player window goes straight over to the right hand side without playing the movie. I presume the movie trailor is supposed to be steaming, but nothing happens.
Quicktime appears to be working OK as I can get the sample movie that installed with it to work OK.
Have tried uninstalling & reinstalling, but no difference. Have also turned off my firewall (nortons internet security) but still doesn't work.

Any ideas please?

Here is a page to check your streaming settings if that is the problem
here (http://www.apple.com/quicktime/resources/qt4/us/proxy/)
Another good page to test your player and settings in quick time.
here (http://www.library.northwestern.edu/dms/qtsupport/)
Is it only one trailer or Have you tried any other trailers? go
here (http://www.apple.com/trailers/) and see if you can download any of these trailers just to check if it is a problem with the one you are trying to download.
Also there is a Quick Time Alternative if you are unable to fix the problemhere (http://www.free-codecs.com/download/QuickTime_Alternative.htm) .
