I am beginning to considering using the Quicktime 7.0.1 reinstaller. Ever since upgrading, Quicktime, and it's plug-in, have been crashing constantly when dealing with midi files. FireFox has even crashed due to the QuickTime plug-in.

Has anyone else experienced this? I've been sending crash reports right and left to Apple, so I hope it is something that gets fixed. Unless it is something just wrong with my computer. Bleh.

Ricky,

I know that Flip4Mac (the Windows Media plug-in replacement) crashed QuickTime 7.0.4 pretty consistently until a new version (2.0.1) came out.

Besides that, I haven't had any problems with 7.0.4. Do you have any QuickTime components installed (DiVX, Ogg Vorbis, etc.)?

I had Ogg, 3ivx, and the Flip4Mac components installed, and I removed them all to check. The crashing continued. I gave up, finally, and used the 7.0.1 ReInstaller. All of my midi related problems are currently gone. (In fact, midi files via the QuickTime plug-in are faster, again.)

So... I guess I'll wait for an update. I don't see midi files being a major priority for Apple, but since, through QuickTime, it managed to crash Safari, Mail, iTunes and QuickTime Player maybe they'll look into it. (Also crashed: FireFox & QMidi... which never crashed before I upgraded.)

Ricky,

The problem is that QuickTime 7.0.4 doesn't seem to be crashing for everyone. I use it through Safari without a problem.

I only have Flip4Mac 2.0.1 installed, but I haven't had any crashing problems since I upgraded to 2.0.1. 2.0 did have known problems with QuickTime 7.0.4.

I know, which means if it isn't a problem with 7.0.4 itself, there is some funky conflict going on with my computer, or something was borked during installation. Either way, the crash reports would shed light on it. Even if nothing comes of it, I'm sticking with 7.0.1 for now. I might check the Apple forums, too. I sometimes find people with similar problems there.
