black quick time controls

Any time Quick Time plays an audio, the control panel is black. Does anybody have a workaround on that?

Running win 7 on hp desktop.

Hi w,

Try running Quicktime (or your browser, if it's embedded media) in Compatibility Mode: Compatibility Mode
You can try various compatibilities but I'd start with Vista.

When I check on Properties I don't get the screen you showed. There is no option named compatibility. I am running Windows 7 on a new HP desktop and I am still learning the tricks of Windows 7. This is one that I have not conquered yet.

Hi again,

Are you having problems with the Quicktime application itself, or with the Quicktime plugin for your browser?

Cheers,

Not sure, but could be both. I can click on a file and it will call in Quick Time or I can click on the Quick Time execute file in "Programs" and then Load the file and I get the black control box in both of them.

Well, I finally found the compatibility box, checked on Vista SP 2 and now quick time runs OK. Thanks for the assistance.

black quicktime controls continued

I am running Windows 7 and have the same black controls for Quicktime player. I click on an mp3 in a website (including my own) and the controls are black. On audio files only a black bar shows. I have tried changing the compatibility settings to Windows XP SP2 and 3, also Vista settings. No help. Anyone have any more ideas?

Quicktime controls

I found that if you load Quicktime first, then open the file, you get the controls. If you click on the file first, then Windows 7 detects that you need Quicktime to open the file, then it is called by Windows 7 and you get the black control box. I have not found a way to change this.
