Thread: Picasa and Quicktime - Anyone got it working?

    Default Picasa and Quicktime - Anyone got it working?

    I've tried several different ways, but just can't seem to get it to work. I use opensuse, so I turn to other suse users.

    Has anyone gotten this to work?

    I've followed the info on wine's site, to install RealAlternative and QuicktimeAlternative, but it just won't work. I've even tried installing the K-Lite codec pack (for AVIs I need working too). The videos just don't show up in Picasa.

    I've also tried installing the windows version overtop what Google's installer does, and no difference.

    Using just straight up wine, I've gotten the AVI checkbox to show up in the file types, but not Quicktime. Still, the AVIs don't show in Picasa.

    Thanks for any help!

    And how about to install Virtual Box and install XP there.

    Well, yes, there is that option, but just an extra hassle. Only other benifit there is to geotag, but don't fully care about it.

    Google says it doesn't work at all. Are you saying that somebody, somewhere got it to work under a Linux distro?

    Here's Wine's site info on it: picasa - The Official Wine Wiki

    Ok, so I had success...

    After installing picasa, I installed quicktimealternative, did not choose media player, at then end, chose 'Configure Quicktime' and Advanced > Set to use GDI.

    Install quicktimealternative again, having ONLY media player classic chosen, and now MOV files work.


    Now the problem of AVI files remain. After doing the Quicktime install, it is checkable under file types, but won't play them.

    Can you explain what you did to make the .MOV support to work. I followed the steps in the wiki, and the .MOV option in picasa is still grayed out.
