Anyone else having this problem? Quicktime pops up with an error saying that this version is expired and forcing me to go to the website to download an update. I haven't done it yet, because in the past updating quicktime usually spelt doom.

But VLC keeps crashing and now I have no way to play movie files anymore :(

Hi m8,

yes. I HAD that problem, too.

After recapitulate about all that hardcore OSX update stress, I figured out that it makes absolutely no f*ckin difference, if I ran a stabile 10.4.4. or some err... not that stabile 10.4.5. Also, I am fine with the 10.4.4. versions of iTunes and the "old" Quicktime. Because they does play music and movies :)

I could only recomment you to UPGRADE 10.4.5. to 10.4.4. ;) because 10.4.4. works like a charm, while 10.4.5. has some issues, that I have no use for.

So I decided to wipe 1.4.5. from my HDD and I am back with 1.4.4. and everything is fine.

ah yes: I tried it via pacifist, but no dice. The problem is the Quicktime binary, that really does not work. i am using AMD here, so perhaps if you have an Intel you have more luck.

I will wait for the master himself to bring some of his new releases to us and then somewhere in the nearer future, i will try to use 10.4.5. maybe.

Yes, I had that problem as well.
Although updating quicktime through Apple's official binary used to break the install and render the OS unable to boot, I decided to try out the new version apple released (7.0.4), which, strangely is the same as the expired one. That fixed the problem without causing any errors.

Good luck!
