Bugged setting Dialog in quicktime java!

date of original post on Blogger: May 22, 2008

I’ve been fighting this bug for days… When calling SGSettingsDialog() from java (the dialog that allows you to choose source, codec etc) I got a strange behavior. The dialog does not accept mouse-downs on the video codec selection popup menu, and the appearence of the dialog looks here and there a bit corrupted. But I did remember that at one time I had been able to select a MP4 codec, so it had to be possible…
I googled for days, without much luck. Yes, qtjava is great but its documentation is soooo poor…
Finally today I accidentally stumbled in the solution:
We've had sporadic reports from customers of corrupted settings dialogs since QT 7 -- deleting the QuickTime preferences seems to clear it."
Yes, yes, yes: it works! Deleting the preferences (/Users/yourname/Library/Preferences/Quicktime Preferences) fixes it!
