    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.

Quicktime Movie Fade-through-white Grey Box Issue

Apr 9, 2010
Reaction score
I have an issue with a movie that has been exported as a quicktime movie gallery (made up of a series of still images that have a fade-through-white transition applied.

The movie (gallery) is to be posted on a website.

When viewed on iPhone and Macs the images smoothly fade-through-white, however, when viewed on a peecee there's a mysterious grey box that appears on screen where the fade-through-white sequence should appear.

1) Any ideas what the issue is and how I can overcome this?

2) Any tips on how to 'loop' the movie ?
