Mpegs on IE6 Problems
March 17, 2004 8:55 PM   Subscribe

the IE6 browser on this computer use to play mpegs in a neat little quicktime box, but now when i click on an mpeg link (test link from here) i get a curious little square in the upper left-hand corner with a red 'x' in it. i see the icons on this quicktime test page, so what up?

i updated my realplayer and it took over the quicktime role w/o my say so. it sucked at playing the movies in the browser, which it stretched into a big rectangle. i chose preferences in real player which should have made it stop and prefs in quicktime which should have made it start but nothing changed, so i just de-installed real player. now i get the x. i can watch this nifty aliens vs. predator trailer in my beloved browser square of old, so why is it .mpg links such as test above are giving me the x?

try re-installing quicktime - real player probably screwed everything up, and quicktime isn't fixing them properly.
