On my aluminium iMac I can never view the keynote addresses from apple events. Everytime I click to view it Quicktime opens but nothing loads up and when i press play it just times out after 8 seconds.

However my old Powerbook G4 and iPhone 3G the event loads first time straight away. Any ideas?

iMac Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.4.8)

    I am having the same problem...when i try and view the keynote..i get a quicktime window that pops up with a status bar in it that flashes from left to right like its loading or something..but nothing ever happens even after a few hours of leaving it there...any suggestions?? i am able to view it on my pc with no problems...the weird thing is that after a few weeks of the keynote being up there and trying to view it...i am able to see it a few weeks after it has been up for a while...not sure what is going on??

    Forgot to mention I am running Leopard 10.5.4 and everything is at its latest version both safari and quicktime. I have never been able to view a keynote address since I bought the iMac last November.

    On my Powerbook G4 I am running Tiger 10.4.11 and the keynote loads up first time.

    I know it doesnt load when It first gets put up due to the amount of traffic on it but usually the day after it will load fine but it doesnt do it on my aluminium iMac.

    Try this:
    Go to System Preference/QuickTime and choose Advanced tab.
    Set Transport Setup to Custom and choose HTTP (Port ID: 80).

    I did not work for me. I used to say "Disconnected" or "Bad Request" but it now says « Not Found ».

    Hi KYL,

    Quit QuickTime first.

    Drag the following files to the Desktop:
    com.apple.quicktime.plugin.preferences.plist
    com.apple.QuickTime.plist
    com.apple.quicktimeplayer.plist

    They are located here: /Users/YourName/Library/Preferences. Drag those files to the Desktop. Now, go to this page: http://events.apple.com.edgesuite.net/0809dt4bs89/event/index.html and see if QT works for you. If it does, drag those files to the trash, empty the trash and reboot. Those are preference files that can become corrupted. Your Mac will make new ones for you when you re-launch QT. Hopefully this will help.

    Carolyn
