Just recently, the video on my iMac quit working properly. The movies in my Movies folder won't open. When I try to open a movie, Quicktime doesn't respond. Also, Frontrow freezes up when I try to play the movie that way. Any help?

Open Quicktime Player and then open a movie from from FILE > OPEN and see what happens.

I had this exact same problem a few days ago. I couldn't open AVI files like normal through quicktime. I re-downloaded Perian and re-enabled it and it fixed the problem. You might try to repair your permissions and then if that doesn't work. Go download perian and install and enable it, and see if that fixes the problem.
