Can't play media files - both iTunes and Quicktime don't work

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I'm experiencing a strange problem over here. After fixing a lot of stuff, I wondered if my sound worked. I managed to get a .mp4 and .mp3 file on my laptop-HDD and tried to open it on my hackintosh. Unfortunately, it didn't work. iTunes recognized the file, but it doesn't start playing it (at the beginning, there's a message that iTunes can't connect to the server). Quicktime just crashes with an error message (something like "ended inexplicably Code: -1); this happens with both files.

 

Has this ever occured to anyone too?

So first, do you have sound working or not? Go to System Preferences > Sound, and see if there is an output device. If it's there, then change volume with keyboard keys (not with the slider in the window), it should play a little sound on every volume change.

I never even heard about that audio-chip... Try using VoodooHDA. (remember to delete/disable applehda.kext if you're using voodoohda.)
