We just upgraded to LION 10.7.4 and I'm noticing on a few of my Quicktime movies - when paused, the screen turns green? THAT'S never happened before. I'm sure it's an upgrade issue, when I go back to our clone from last week, it doesn't do that!
We use QT Pro 7.66. on a MacBook Pro (about 1 1/2 years old) - always perfect results, but now this?
No big deal, just a little annoying. It only does this on a few of the movies we've exported out of Final Cut Pro. Can't find the pattern?
Anyone else seeing a green screen when paused? I'm lonely out here!
I filed a bug report with Apple about this. I also found a work-around for my MacBook Pro: change from the integrated NVIDIA 9400M to the discrete NVIDIA 9600M GT. QuickTime Player 7 then immediately displays all the formerly green-screened movies properly.
If you're like me and have an older MacBook Pro that cannot change cards on-the-fly using stock Mac OS X, I highly recommend using Cody Krieger's gfxCardStatus. It adds that feature, and even for newer MacBook Pro owners it's useful so you can see when apps are triggering a switch from integrated to discrete cards.
