Quicktime problem in Safari

by italtrav / May 19, 2010 1:15 PM PDT

I'm running completely up-to-date OS X 10.6.3 , Safari 4.0.5, etc. Some sites will not load or play QT movies. The same sites work perfectly in Firefox. One possibility: could the new Java update have screwed something up? Here's one site that didn't work for me: <http://www.theforgottentechnology.com/>. I click the photo to enter the site and get only the QT logo instead of the video. YouTube works OK and so do embedded YouTube videos on the sites I've checked. Suggestions?

This is a site problem

I have not updated Java, yet, and all I get is the QT Logo.

Contact the site owner/webmaster, the problem lies with them

I have the same issue in Safari but NOT with Firefox; the QT video plays perfectly well in Firefox but not in Safari 4.0.5 with latest Java update (OS X 10.6.3 MBP 2.4 GHz).

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
