    Like the title says, none of my Quicktime movies work. I uninstalled and re-installed the player, updated it, and it keeps coming back as "Unknown error". Is this just something that happens with quicktime or is my luck with computers really just that bad lately?

    try playing your files with vlc - if they work in that i'd say your computer needs a holiday.

    Vlc?

    Quicktime is the one that looks like a little clock shaped like a "Q", right?

    It's worth mentioning that most, if not all of my Quicktime movies can still be played in Windows Media Player, and with the exception of one, large (1080p, which pixelated a lot) Quicktime file, they all play just as good as in the player.

    well if you can still play the movies in another program i'd say qt is busted - maybe codec problems? i don't rate it myself to be honest, i use VLC player for all my video needs.

    Quicktime has never worked for me....ever. I've either just used Allplayer or VLC media player.
