Can you help? Quicktime player suddenly misbehaving

I have a wildlife camera with an SD card. Normally the videos display in Finder with the first shot of the video. Then when I click on them to play, Quicktime opens and plays them.

Midday yesterday, the videos started showing in Finder with the Quicktime icon. When I click to play, I get the swirling beachball, endlessly.

Any clues out there? I need to see if our neighborhood mangey fox ate a meatball so I can give him some ivermectin!

Thanks, folks.

I feel so ripped off--newspapers.com

I have had a membership to ancestry off and on for years. I have to get our family tree ready to pass on to my niece, who will be carrying the info into the future after I'm gone (mentally or physically). I have to clean up a mess I made when I first started about 10 years ago and didn't know that if you accept all the hints you end up with things like, "Lady Godiva had 50 children. She actually died before she was born," in the life stories.

So I resubscribed for six months and decided to include newspapers.com. It's so frustrating when I can't open an article.

As I went along, it seemed that everything I wanted to read was part of some "premier" subscription that cost another $50/year. I was able to open some papers in various cities, but never the major paper.

I have 10 days left to cancel the upgrade. I saw someone say that you can get newspapers.com through some libraries and am wondering if that access is to all papers or just the non-premiers. I'll check on that.

There seem to be a lot of people who know what they're doing on this thread. It's great to read the posts!
