QuickTime Error 41 : Electric Boogaloo
I know you guys have had this problem before, but this is the first time I've seen it in recent updates, so I thought I'd give it a shot to post here.
I've been having issues with QuickTime on startup. I've contacted tech support, uninstalled, reinstalled, uninstalled and reinstalled QuickTime, the whole enchilada. In both 2021.3 and 2022.1, I seem to keep getting this error. I know there's a workaround where you can name .MOV files to .MP4 and they should work, but I'd appreciate diagnosing the root cause, in case (or before) it causes anything else to break. Anyone have any past experience with this and have any tips?
