"The movie contains an incorrect time value" error - saving a trimmed video

I am attempting to trim a video shot on my Samsung CL65. The video was shot in High Quality HD 1280 x 720. I open the video in QuickTime and then use the Trim command to remove the last part of the video and then close it to Save it. When I save it I get the following error: "The document SAM_0306.MP4 could not be saved as "SAM_0306". The movie contains an incorrect time value." I think this has to do with an encoding error in the original file or in the trimmed file but I have no idea how to get around it.
Any ideas?

This info probably won't help with your problem, but it's information for others who get this error.
It's probably the software that made the MP4. ffmpegX, for example, and the mencoder program inside it, do this with every H264 encoding when the video is longer than 1 hour. Time codes are correct up to 1 hour, then the seconds value gets wacky (3600 is added to it). Quicktime won't save a movie with a time code like 1:20:3623.120 (although it will correctly display 1:20:23 in the player).
Apple used to offer quicktime scripts that would allow you to see what the time code in a stream really looked like. Applescript appears to have officially and quietly gone missing, though, and those scripts are no longer available online as far as I can tell. There were some really handy other scripts that would allow you to view all sorts of movie properties and manipulate tracks (great for syncing poorly synced sound, for example), but time code problems like the above would invariably mean the movie couldn't be saved.

  • OSX Mavericks & QT Error Message: Movie contains an incorrect time value

    Ever since I upgraded, I can not edit my QTime movies in Quicktime Player 7.  I keep getting
    Error Message: Movie contains an incorrect time value
    All the fixes I have read from the past blogs are not working.
    Is there a fix? If not, what editing software do I need to start using that is as easy as Quicktime 7 was?

    I figured out a work around, I trim the selection I want, then export to a MOV file with same settings (I have tried H264 and ProRes compression). I can then open that file to copy and paste.
    What a pain - I hope apple can update this issue somehow.

  • When exporting: Error -2014 "the movie contains an incorrect duration"

    My end goal is to be able to edit .FLV files in iMovie, so I need to convert them to a usable format. I already have QT Pro, so it's the first thing I tried.
    I have Perian, so the .FLV files play with no issues, but when I try to export them to something usable in iMovie, it makes it to the end of the export process and gives the following error:
    "The movie contains an incorrect duration -2014"
    Has anyone had this issue? Are there any known fixes?

    Select an in and out point other than the very start and end (usually a good idea anyway as there is often a bunch of junk you don't need there) and then do edit trim to selection and then save as. Once in a MOV container try exporting.
    You might also try to select, copy , paste in a new player window and then save as, that new one and export from it after saving as.

  • "The movie contains an invalid data reference" error in subscribed albums

    I'm subscribed to a MobileMe album that contains movies (m4v). Just a few of these movies work well and some other will not play. I get the following error message: "The movie contains an invalid data reference". It seems that these movies are not downloaded since I can't find the original file in my iPhoto Library. For those movies without this problem I can find the original file in the iPhoto Library. It's needed to say that this problems shows up only in iPhoto since I can see all movies at the Gallery app in iPhone/iPod/iPad and also online. Any ideas?

    Your profile shows you at 10.5.7. If that's correct download and run the Mac OS X 10.5.8 Combo Update. It wouldn't hurt to reapply it even if you're at 10.5.8.
    Also reapply QuickTime 7.5 for Leopard and Compatibility Update for QuickTime 7.5.5.

  • QTPro Could not save file "The movie contains an in correct time value"

    QT Pro 7.6.6 Could not save file “The movie contains an in correct time value”
    I’m exporting files out of Priemer Pro CS5 with the H.264 “vimeo HD settings” .mp4 files and the files look dull, low contrast and low color saturation, when played in QT10. From what I’ve read it’s a gamma problem with QT10. I also hear the files from FCP have the same problem, so it's not a Premiere Pro problem.
    The fix is to open the file in QT Pro, adjust the blend in the video track and re-save, however I try to save the file I get an error that says “The movie contains an in correct time value”
    Will QT Pro 7.6.6 allow me to save my file to .mp4 or only .mov files
    I’m on a MacPro 12 Core with 14gb memory
    OS 10.6.5
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks
    Mark

    Will QT Pro 7.6.6 allow me to save my file to .mp4 or only .mov files
    The "Save As..." option always saves a copy of the data to an MOV file container. Minor property changes will allow your to use the "Save" option which stores only the changed properties to the same file in its original file container. Unfortunately, major changes will automatically invoke the "Save As..." routines even though you selected the "Save" option. If you must place the content in an MP4 file container, you can use the "Save As..." option in QT Streamclip to re-save the "fixed" MOV file to an MP4 file container. However, note that extraneous track content may, if present, not be carried over to the MP4 container.

  • I have uninstalled and reinstalled itunes numerous times and keep getting the message it reinstalled incorrectly stating windows Error 127.

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled itunes numerous times and keep getting the message it reinstalled incorrectly stating windows Error 127.  I am using windows 7

    For general advice see Troubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates.
    The steps in the second box are a guide to removing everything related to iTunes and then rebuilding it which is often a good starting point unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach. Review the other boxes and the list of support documents further down page in case one of them applies.
    Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there is backup and recovery advice elsewhere in the user tip.
    You may have more success if you use the advice in the Install missing components section to break down the installer into its component .msi files and install these in alphabetical order.

  • Can't play rented movies.  They appear to download OK and the timer accurately reports days remaining to watch.  But whenever I try to play the movie I get this message, "An error occurred loading this content.  Try again later."

    Can't play rented movies.  They appear to download OK and the timer accurately reports days remaining to watch.  But whenever I try to play the movie I get this message, "An error occurred loading this content.  Try again later.". Have been using the Apple TV for 2 weeks and everything else seems to work OK.  The Apple TV reports its SW is up to date.  I've tried this with two movies rented frim iTunes directly from the Apple TV.

    If after you download the movie, you navigate away and do something else with your Apple TV the content you have downloaded will be overwritten and you'll need to download it again. It's a pain in the neck for many who have slow downloads but it's something that comes with using volatile memory rather than a hard drive for storage.
    Perhaps you're not doing this, but I thought it worth mentioning.

  • TS3212 Just attempted to download current update of Itunes into my HP windows 7 computer. I've never had trouble before but now it will not run. Runtime Error R6034 an app has make an attempt to load the C runtime library incorrectly. Itunes Error 7

    Just attempted to download current update of Itunes into my HP computer with Windows 7. I've never had trouble before but now it will not run. Runtime Error R6034 an app has make an attempt to load the C runtime library incorrectly. Itunes Error 7

    Click here and follow the instructions. You may need to completely remove and reinstall iTunes and all related components, or run the process multiple times; this won't normally affect its library, but that should be backed up anyway.

  • Time value error with JSTL in fmt:formatDate

    Hi all,
    I try to display a date field from my Oracle 10g DB which contains date and time value. In the DB everything is stored correctly. When I use a
    <fmt:formatDate value="${row.BEGIN_DATE}" pattern="dd.MM.yyyy HH:mm" />the date is displayed correctly but the time value is always 00:00. How can the time value be displayed correctly. Is this a matter of database or a JSTL configuration?
    TIA,
    Axel

    The value of the pattern attribute should be a
    pattern string following the conventions of the
    java.text.SimpleDateFormat class.I know this. But the pattern "dd.MM.yyyy HH:mm" should be ok, or what's wrong with this pattern in your opinion?

    iTunes update 11.1.4 produces an error message R6034 "An applicaton has made an attempt to load the C runtime library incorrectly" When that error is acknowledged, a second windows error 1114 "error 7" displays "iTunes was not installed correctly".  I also tried to downloadiTunes 11.1.4 at th Apple website and that did not work either-It stalled with an erro message that stated the "mobile service" would  not open HELP!

    Hi Doug! I was having the same problem but after reading a lot of answers I found the solution. First of all you need unistall ALL THE SOFTWARE OF APPLE from your computer, I mean BONJOUR, QUICKTIME, ITUNES, APPLE SOFTWARE UPDATE, APPLE MOBILE DEVICE SUPPORT and the other one that is from compatibility with apps of apple, after that you must verify if this folders are removed if they don't then remove it:
    C:\Program Files\Bonjour
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\
    C:\Program Files\iTunes\
    C:\Program Files\iPod\ 
    If you have a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll need to confirm that the following folders have been removed: 
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Bonjour
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\
    C:\Program Files (x86)\iTunes\
    C:\Program Files (x86)\iPod\
    Then if you have ccleaner you can use it to clean all registers left, then reboot and try to install iTunes 11.1.4 again as administrator... That works for me, I hope that helps you too...

  • Can i to see directly with Apple-TV the movie presents in my Time Capsule?

    I would like to know if can I to see directly with Apple-TV the movie presents in my Time Capsule?
    Thank you very much in advance for your support. (sorry for my english)

    Unless your Macbook is recent and supports Airplay you would need a third party app such as Airparrot to Airplay video to AppleTV - this will not work with Apple's DVD Player though but may work with VLC.
    Methods of conversion of DVDs to play on AppleTV cannot be discussed on Apple's fora due to their terms and conditions.

    The Silverlight plugin crashes every time i try to watch a video at the Universal Sports website. I have uninstalled this plugin and re-enstalled it many times with no success

    It doesn't matter what I do I still get the plugin to crash. I've removed every trace of Internet Explorer in the registry. Download fresh versions of Mozilla and Silverlight. I uninstalled both of them and cleaned any lingering files. Reinstalled Mozilla, and Silverlight. Same error. No more movies for me. :>/ See entry below.
