Thanks Sniper Monkey 007 !!!

I did as you advised:

..... open Quicktime<Edit<Preferences<Quicktime Preferences<Advanced Sub category “Video”. Instead of disabling the “Enable Direct3D video acceleration” like the article suggests keep that box enabled and instead disable the “Enable DirectDraw acceleration”. In other words keep all of the boxes checked except for Safe mode (GDI only)" and “Enable DirectDraw acceleration”.

No more green screen. reply

Unchecking the boxes did nothing for me, but repairing Quicktime did. Thanks!! reply

Changing drawing settings in Quicktime and/or changing the monitor settings in Windows didn’t work for me. I had the problem with Quicktime, Windows Media Player, and Real Player even though I updated all of them. After further looking I found a fix that worked perfectly.

You need to run Microsoft’s “Update for Windows Media Digital Rights Management-enabled players”. It’s available here:

Thank you very much Melvin Cox. I read this post and after hrs of install and trying to delete leftover quicktime files and apple files and reinstalling quicktime, I was very stressed but this tip is an A+.

I thought it was the program but it was from what I can tell the tip Set Hardware Acceleration Slider to midpoint step that fixed my problem with this annoying green screen. You can hear sound but not see the movies. This fix works. Thanks to this site and this user posted tip.I quote as follows.."
