Can't play MIDI files on MacBook Pro 10.7.5

PLEASE help! I'm an old boomer and not too tech-savvy (know enough to get all messed up!).
I can't play MIDI files on MacBook Pro 10.7.5, and it's driving me CRAZY. I'm trying to play files from this website: http://www.hymntime.com/tch/ (just select a song under the "Titles" link), using Safari and/or Firefox browser -- to no good end!
What can I buy or add on that will enable the playing of MIDI files??
Thank you!

I had heard that MIDI worked in Lion, but don't currently have it to test.
There's a somewhat involved way to get it working described here, or you may be able to download the files & play them locally.

  • How can I play music on my macbook pro (OSX Lion) through a Pioneer receiver. I've connected them with a mini display port to HDMI cable with audio support bought at the Apple Store, but there's no sound coming through. thanks

    How can I play music on my macbook pro (OSX Lion) through a Pioneer receiver? I've connected them with a mini display port to HDMI cable with audio support bought at the Apple Store, but there's no sound coming through. There are 4 HDMI-in ports on the receiver - BD, DVD, DVR/BDR and audio. In my system preferences for sound, the receiver doesn't show up as an output option. Can anyone please advise. (ps, this is my first time posting a question, so I hope I can find your answers!) thanks, JP downunder

    For sound, try the audio output port and connecting to the RCA  audio input ports on your Pioneer receiver.  Use something like this:

  • I can't play midi files.

    Hi,
    I have the latest version of iTunes and Quicktime but I can't play midi files with Quicktime anymore. I have to remove iTunes to be able to play them. Does anyone know how to fix this so I can have iTunes and play midis too? They used to play on my computer so I don't know what's going on.
    Thanks!

    Do you have QuickTimeMusic.qtx and QuickTimeMusicalInstruments.qtx (and their resource directory) in your Program Files\QuickTime\QTSystem directory?
    And you may need to remove some codec packs include QuickTime support.
    And why you have to use QuickTime synthesizer for MIDI files? It uses obsolete technology and a small soundfont (from about 1997) and without proper support for Yamaha XG MIDI files?

  • Can we play bluray disc on macbook pro 2011?

    i am keen to know that can we play bluray movies on macbook pro??

    No.
    Different format...  http://www.blu-ray.com/info/
    "While current optical disc technologies such as DVD, DVD±R, DVD±RW, and DVD-RAM rely on a red laser to read and write data, the new format uses a blue-violet laser instead, hence the name Blu-ray."

  • Unable to Play wmv files om Macbook pro

    How can I play wmv files on my MacBook pro?  I always could play them but recently unable to.  I get the message that Flip4Mac must be updated.  I try to update but it says it is already updated.  Also tried updating Quick player and gert the same reply.  Any suggestions would be appreciated. 

    I'm getting error too (Error #2044: Unhandled NetStatusEvent:. level=error, code=NetStream.Play.StreamNotFound). I'm getting this with CS5. This file was previously made in CS4 and never got this error.
    Everything (fla and flv too) is on external hard disk.
    As this work requires to be exported to mov, I've found out that everything needs to be on the mac (don't know for pc), like on desktop.
    So, let me wrap up disadvantages I got with Flash CS5:
    - TextField.embedFont makes the font disappear in CS5, so I can't use it, so I can't "play" with text in a comfortable way (in CS4, with embedFont = true, I was able to rotate and stuff). Now I have to make a bitmap out of it. It means 3 lines of code and a new variable, instead of just an easy one.
    - I have to rebuild my entire source path structure for AS classes, as my old one (that took me years of effort to be reasonable and used to work just fine in CS4).
    - I have to move stuff from my hard drive to the desktop, to make flv be played and to make a mov out of my animation.
    CS5 is making my job harder and making me lose a lot of time to find out errors that have no good reason to exist (it was not error. just "place CS5 doesn't like").

  • Can't play mid files in Audigy2

    I have installed my Audigy 2 ZX for months. I found it couldn't play midi files until recently. I had tried to cleansweep both the drivers and Creative's applications several times but no help. It is silent whenever I playback those files. What I noticed that the option of midi playback in Multimedia was blank. I had chosen different options but it return to blank next time.
    Anyone can help? TIA.
    Regards,
    Michael

    It should work.
    . Double-click the speaker icon near the clock.
    2. Select Options>Properties, put dot in Playback circle.
    3. Put a checkmark in the Midi Synth box and click OK
    4. Make sure Midi Synth is not muted and that it's volume control is near the top.
    Of course, you also need a player which will play midi files. Many do, but I prefer
    vanBasco's Player....free at http://www.vanbasco.com/
    Good luck,

  • Flash CS5 unable to play .FLV files on Macbook Pro

    I have a colleague who is trying to put together a Flash package for me  on her macbook pro.  It needs to play an flv file. She is unable to play  flv files on her computer either in Flash or using the Adobe Media  Player. I have no problem playing the same files on my macbook pro,  we're both running the latest OS and have version 1.8 of Adobe Media  Player.
    She went to the Adobe site to download the latest version of Adobe  Media Player, hoping that might include whatever component is missing on  her system. Because of Adobe's decision not to distribute AMP that  didn't help.  She has Flash Professional CS5 11.0.2 on her system.  When  she imports an flv video into a Flash project and tries to play it she  gets an error message saying it can't stream the video. Note that the  video is on her hard drive, it is NOT on the internet so no streaming  should be required.
    The actual error message is: "the video player is in the connection  error state. It enters this state when a video stream attempted to load  but was unsuccessful. There are two possible reasons for the error: no  connection to the server or the stream was not found."
    Since it's a file on her hard drive, and she has loaded the file  into the Adobe development environment successfully, the one thing we  know for certain is that neither of these reasons is correct. Something  is obviously missing on her system, what is it and what can we do to fix  it?

    I'm getting error too (Error #2044: Unhandled NetStatusEvent:. level=error, code=NetStream.Play.StreamNotFound). I'm getting this with CS5. This file was previously made in CS4 and never got this error.
    Everything (fla and flv too) is on external hard disk.
    As this work requires to be exported to mov, I've found out that everything needs to be on the mac (don't know for pc), like on desktop.

  • Can I play games on my MacBook Pro by using an external graphics card and using windows via a software called "Parallels Desktop" or do I have to use Boot Camp (I have both installed)

    Can I use Windows Parallel to play games? I mean will it not get enough power? Like I clearly remember that I read some where one my system that the Paralels is getting only 1 GB of my ram. I have the mid 2012 MacBook Pro, the $1500 one.

    You shouldn't use Parallels to pay games. If you want to play games you need to install Windows via Bootcamp so that it has access to all the resources available.

  • Can't use .mid file with Logic Pro 9

    I've been given a .mid file from someone I know but I'm not having any success trying to access the file in Logic.
    The file should just contain a piano piece he had written.
    When I first downloaded the file it automatically opened with QuickTime Player. I closed this then tried various ways of getting it into Logic. Firstly I went to File > Open, and chose the .mid file. This was the result:
    "Damaged project or not a Logic Pro project!
    "Search for fragments?
    "Damaged projects might create problems and crashes!"
    'Search' or 'Cancel'
    When I click 'Search' I'm told:
    "Read error!
    "This is not a Logic Pro project!
    "No tracks found"
    'Continue'
    So, is the file empty (no tracks found)?
    Or, because it was not created in Logic, it can't be opened in Logic. (I think he is using a PC, not confirmed yet - I also don't know what DAW he's using, yet)
    That's ridiculous though, I thought MIDI was a universal language?
    I also tried dragging the file straight into a Logic project, which tells me:
    "No tracks found"
    Can someone please give me a little hand!? Thank you

    Okay? Sorry, I have no experience with .mid files as I've never exported or imported them or moved them before... or even highlighted one before!
    Two ideas, have your friend check and make sure the mid file plays on his/her system.
    and/or
    If the mid file checks out good on his/her system have them compress (ZIP) the file and resend as it could have become corrupted during transfer. It can happen.
    Your description of the file (zero length) sounds like it missed the last few bytes.

  • How can I play sound from my MacBook Pro through my iMac?

    I have a MacBook pro which I am looking to use for only iTunes or Spotify for the time being but the iMac built in speakers are better.
    I am internet sharing from an ethernet on my iMac and the Macbook pro is connected to the shared network.
    Can I play music from Spotify on my macbook pro but out of my iMac speakers?
    Thanks

    For sound, try the audio output port and connecting to the RCA  audio input ports on your Pioneer receiver.  Use something like this:
