According to Apple developer documents, this error is a Carbon Apple Event error:
handlerNotFoundErr = -1856, /* handler not found */
This description doesn't tell much.
From the symptoms that you describe, I would re-install QuickTime from scratch and pray.
Currently Being ModeratedMay 13, 2007 10:48 AM (in response to AeroQ)Well, this is exactly the kind of scenario for which I made a complete backup image of my HD when I first installed everything last year. I wiped the HD and reinstalled the image and I'm back up & running.iMacG5/2.0GHz/2GB/1.6TB, Mac OS X (10.4.2), eMac/1.25GHz/1GB/160GB, MacBookPro/2GHz/1GB/100GB, Too much other gear.
Currently Being ModeratedMay 13, 2007 11:00 AM (in response to MartinR)You could have solved it by turning off the "Show Content Guide" in the QuickTime Player preferences.
The "trampoline.mov" just bounces (get it) to the download for the content guide.

Currently Being ModeratedMay 14, 2007 11:50 AM (in response to QuickTimeKirk)No, I was aware of that trick, but there was much more that was awry. All of the QuickTime-based apps on my system were affected, and some wouldn't even run anymore. The iTunes UI was corrupted, iDVD had no sound, WireTap showed weird audio settings and failed to capture, Final Cut wouldn't even start ...
Reimaging the HD was the right thing to do, and everything is working fine again.iMacG5/2.0GHz/2GB/1.6TB, Mac OS X (10.4.2), eMac/1.25GHz/1GB/160GB, MacBookPro/2GHz/1GB/100GB, Too much other gear.
