    Okay. My new computer has been having problems with Quicktime files built into websites. But it seems to just be the larger size files.

    Any ideas what is going on?

    Does it work in some other browser? IE? Opera?

    If it's just Firefox, I guess the plugin could have somehow become screwed up.

    I recall from a previous thread you need quicktime for itunes or some such so quicktime alternative is probably out:
    http://www.free-codecs.com/download/QuickT...native_Lite.htm

    The 1080p I see there most likely means issues with H264 files (the alternative above does have some playback support for h264 in it), try installing a new FFdshow tryout: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow-tryout/ or alternatively CCCP: http://www.cccp-project.net/ and enabling decoding by FFdshow.

    Oh and I am sure are aware but you can disable error reporting (one of my pet peaves with recent windows): http://www.xp-antispy.org/

    Edit:
    too slow again.

    disabling directdraw may work but can also push usage through the roof, it also points to a codec issue.

    The 1080p you see is just an option of what resolution to view it at. That's a trailer from apple.com/trailers. The choices were Small Medium Large 480p 720p 1080p

    Ah, I see you're trying to check out the trailer for "Project Cloverfield". Good stuff, but the 1080p trailer can never defeat the silver screen trailer + Transformers...
