I have the same problem.
For all those who have this problem, if you want Apple fixing this bug, please go to http://bugreport.apple.com and open a new bug.

I tried to report the issue via the website you referenced, but I am not an Apple Developer so I was unable to do so. Perhaps you could copy my post or link it via your developer credentials.

It's not Apple developer id, but your apple id which you use on appstore/itunes, I'm sure you have one, please try it again. Don't forget that you can always create new Apple ID.

Same problem here, additionally I have no visible controls. I can use Gestures on trackpad, but once I adjust out of "play" it's nearly impossible to get it back under control without a frame of reference and quickly turns into a Carnival Ride.

While you appear to be correct that is is a "developer" only reporting workflow which probably requires more immediate attention/response from Apple, it is not the only reporting vehicle. Any user can provide product feedback on any Apple product via this URL:

Same issue here. Mountain Lion. Retina MacBook Pro. After fastforwarding, the audio will continue to skip even though the video is playing at normal speed.
Thanks for the link. I just reported the bug to them as well.
[EDIT] The aduio is still out of sync if you pause it then play it again but it also seems to go back in sync if you pause it, then play it again after 5 mins or so of waiting. But waiting 5 mins is not a fix. It's still a bug.

I updated to 10.8.2, sadly still having troubles with fast-forwarding followed by stuttering audio. But I wanted to share a temporary fix.
Close the file and reopen, and that works. But that loses my spot so that was getting annoying. I found out I could go to Trim mode (command-T) and back out, and the audio would fix itself. (And not lose my spot.) (< On an individual basis. It usually breaks again sometime the next video.)
Don't know if this will work for anyone else but it's worth a shot
(I'm on a 2012 MacBook Pro 15")

Yup. Same problem. I use the "purge" command from the Terminal (rather than close the video and re-start all the time) and that returns the QuickTime playback to normal.
Currently Being ModeratedNov 17, 2012 4:25 PM (in response to @bundini)
I don't use Terminal often. Could you explain exactly how you do that?
Currently Being ModeratedNov 17, 2012 4:54 PM (in response to Ignolopi)
Sure. Happy to.
1) Pause the QuickTime player playback.
2) Just open Terminal.
3) Type "purge".
4) Wait for the prompt to re-appear. (10-20 seconds depending on how much memory it's cleaning up.) Voila!
5) Return to QuickTime and press play to continue. Audio returns to normal.
Hope this helps. Cheers!
*note: when Mountain Lion was first released, typing "purge" threw an error message about a missing library --even though "purge" was actually still working. That has been subsequently fixed. I'm running 10.8.2 on an early 2008 Intel MacbookPro w/ 6G RAM.

Hi thanks! I hadn't been aware of that before. Simple!
And it probably will help with other things as well....
Tho for me command-T followed by esc is faster for QuickTime
I'm waitin' every day for the next OS update! (And new iTunes!)
