There seem to be problems with Quicktime 7, on panther at least. I was getting a crash every time I tried to play an ogg either via iTunes or quicktime.
The patch below prevents the crashing, but its indicitive of deeper problems as Quicktime is returning a samplecount of zero. As such no actual sound is produced - i'm includign it to help somebody who knows the code better than me to diagnose the problem rather than suggesting it as a fix.
My copy of Tiger should arrive in a few days so I will test on there later.

Information relating to this issue should probably go on the relevant bug report: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1144430&group_id=41359&atid=430388
Thanks for looking into it.
