Recently upgraded from OS X 10.5 to Snow Leopard (10.6.8) and am finding that both Quicktime Pro 7 and QT Player X save movies EXTREMELY slowly - like a factor of ten slower than before.  Can't find anything about this, but it can't be right - it's really unusable.  Help?

    Are you "saving" or "exporting/sharing" the content? (I.e., what are the containers, audio and video compression formats, and dimensions of both your source and output files?)

    Sorry for the long-delayed reply.  I noticed that I had some other problems as well, and simultaneous problems are usually related.  After some detective work I traced the problem to a defective (?) USB hub.  Everything seems to be fine now, so I suppose this question can be taken down.  Thanks!
