Nvidia 8600 GTS vs Quicktime, I give up.

Hi all,
I've really had it with my 8600. From what I have found it doesn't play well with QT. I get crashes trying to export from AE, .mov on the web, etc....

Anyone know if the newer nvidia cards work with QT, or should I try ATI or...
Any help would be great.
Thanks,
Jon

How do you know it is your 8600 GTS that is the problem? I have some difficulty believing that a graphics card would be the cause of QuickTime export issues. Playback, maybe, but not export. So far as I know graphics adapters play no role in exporting video from applications like AE.

That said, have you tried updating to the latest nVidia drivers for your 8600 GTS? On the off chance that your graphics card is somehow involved, it should be a driver issue.

And what version of the QuickTime Player do you have installed? Chances are it is a problem with QuickTime components since you are having problems with both exporting and playing QuickTime files.

I was wondering along that line. I recently installed QuickTime 7.4.1 on Windows Vista (not on my editing setup) and have had annoying issues with QuickTime playing video from Web pages. It seems impossible to completely eradicate this version and return to a previous version (or I didn't go back far enough - I tried 7.3.1), even by manually deleting QuickTime files and registry keys. I don't know what Apple did with this release of the QuickTime player, but they definitely have issues that need to be fixed.

Meanwhile, I'm installing QuickTime 7.2 on my editing installation.

Jon, I read a post on the Apple forums from a user who was having trouble with QuickTime Pro crashing when he was trying to export videos and opened the export settings dialog. He had an nVidia card, and reported disabling video acceleration fixed the issue.

You can disable video acceleration for QuickTime by launching the QuickTime Player, going to Edit > Preferences > QuickTime Preferences, choosing the Advanced tab, and under the Video section selecting "Safe mode (GDI only)."
