Q: I'm using the latest version of QuickTime on a PC and my movies aren't playing well or I'm experiencing sound quality issues. What should I do?
A: You can choose to view the movies in Flash, disable closed captioning, or uninstall QuickTime and install version 7.6.0.
Q: I have an older version of QuickTime on my Mac and my movies aren’t playing in either QuickTime or Flash. What should I do?
A: On some Intel-based Macs, QuickTime version 7.2 affects the computer’s ability to play web-based videos. Unfortunately, this version can also impact other applications.
