Thanks so much for reading!
Recently I tried to view a video on a website that uses quicktime.
This the video's webpage: http://www.fpmt.org/projects/seraje/default.asp

I could only get audio, which was good but the picture was just squiggly colored lines.
So I updated Quicktime and Firefox. Still no go. I emailed the webmaster who sent me another page to try, but it did not work for me.
So I searched this site and tried the following advice that is in quotes.

"Close any open browsers (this is mandatory). Open the QuickTime Player. Select Edit > Preferences > QuickTime Preferences. Then click on the Browser Tab & click on Mime Settings at the bottom of the tab. Expand Miscellaneous File Formats by clicking the + sign on the left, & uncheck Flash Media then click Ok > Apply > Ok for the setting to be saved."

Sorry I don't have a link to the post that quote is from as I had to close my browser and did not think to save the page.
Anyway, now I just get a question mark over the quicktime video display when I try to play it. I restored the defaults and I guess tomorrow I will reinstall Quicktime.
But I feel I will still have the same problem. Does anyone have any advice on this?

I have noticed that most of the posts on this site are regarding no sound in quicktime. That is definitely not me.
I tried reading the help on quicktime but nothing seemed relevant to my problem.
Will registering change this?

Super thanks for any advice!! :thumbsup:
I hope I did not write too much, I just hate it when people don't fully describe their problem.

Update:
I reinstalled Quicktime and I am still not able to play the video on the link above. Still get that same question mark over the quicktime logo in the popup play window.
To test if it was really quicktime or just that video I googled for other videos and played the first thing that popped up.
(This link: http://download.wbr.com/quicktime/muse.html )
It played, but with the pink and green lines over the picture as when I first tried to play the Sera Je video.
Is something wrong with my monitor or video card maybe? How do I find out what I'm supposed to have? When I downloaded Quicktime it said the requirements are Vista or Svc Pack 2. I'm using XP with with the service pack.
Thank for reading and thanks for any help you can give me.

This is not my area of expertise, but I would say it is more than likely a codec problem. You might need one that isn't installed
