Currently Being ModeratedOct 18, 2007 6:31 PM (in response to harris45)Those files that display that icon are probably Flash video formats and the flash Player browser plug-in should open them and not QuickTime.
QuickTime Control Panel / Browser tab / MIME Settings button
Under Miscellaneous remove the check mark for Flash Video
Quit and relaunch your browser and try the Web page again.Mac mini (G4 1.4), iMac G3 400, and Sony laptop using XP, Mac OS X (10.4.10), 10.3.9 OS 9.2
Currently Being ModeratedOct 18, 2007 6:34 PM (in response to harris45)Using Software Update, I upgraded my version of QuickTime, OS X, etc. I'm having the same exact problem: on some websites, rather than a picture, I see the QuickTime Q logo with a question mark inside of it. I'm seeing this error in both Firefox and Safari (latest versions of each).

Currently Being ModeratedOct 20, 2007 8:55 AM (in response to QuickTimeKirk)I also have checked those settings, but I cannot play any Quicktime movies in Firefox or IE7. The box tells me I need Quicktime 5 or higher and I just upgraded to the latest version, 7. I need to view movies for one of my online classes and it is not working!!

Currently Being ModeratedOct 31, 2007 2:54 AM (in response to Deshai)Hi Guys,
Did anyone find a solution to this? I've found that on a PC which is happy to play MPEG1s, Sorrenson etc.. in the Quicktime plugin won't play H.264s (I get the ? of death) - Can I find what error is causing this somewhere?
I've re-installed twice but to no avail, I can play the H.264 file if I first download it but not in the browser (IE6/Mozilla 1.7.13/Firefox 188.8.131.52)
Out of around 150 computers this has only occurred on 2 (unfortunately one in upper management).
I've got hold of one of them and would be open to any ideas (except re-installing the OS)

Currently Being ModeratedOct 31, 2007 3:20 AM (in response to Tcrichton)It seems that on some PCs Quicktime can handle source URLs with spaces, and on others it can handle MPEG1s with spaces in the source URL, but not H.264s with spaces in the URL.
This completely puzzles me, why does it work with MPEG1s but not H264s?
To re-iterate, one of my PCs will happily play all embedded quicktimes, with or without spaces in the URL, the other will play MPEG1s and H.264s if there are no spaces in the URL, and will play MPEG1s but not H264s with spaces...
Fix: Remove spaces from H.264 URLs as this makes no sense to me...PC, Windows XP Pro
