Using Mac OS X 10.4.11 on a 1.25 GHz PowerPC G4 I keep getting failure in my Quicktime export process. I have tried to export several good .mov files to .rm using the dropdown menu in QT. About midway through the process  the following failure message occurs:

Failed: Export process terminated unexpectedly (10).

I don't know what the 10 means.

I have downloaded and reinstalled Quicktime so I don't think it is the software..
I have 30 G of space left on my primary drive and plenty of space on external drives.
I have also tried to export to a .fla file but when I try to embed that in a swf player it doesn't work either.
I'm creating the original  .mov files with iMovie and Youtube does convert them to its standard with no problems

Any suggestions on how to diagnose and solve this?

Try removing the file FLV.component from your HD/library/quicktime folder

Also, if you are using QT 7.4, try downgrading to 7.3.1.  See today's MacFixit:

Great. After removing the FlV.component from the Quicktime library and rebooting, the .rm files suddenly appeared on my drives. The solution is easy to perform, but understanding it? Phew!

Thanks for the information. If the flv.component hadn't worked I would have tried this. Exports were working in the past before I upgraded. Never thought about that.
