QTKitServer Constantly Crashes (Quits Unexpectedly)

This process is constantly crashing (quitting unexpectedly) – sometimes as frequently as every 30 seconds:

Process:         com.apple.qtkitserver [1981]
Path:            /System/Library/Frameworks/QTKit.framework/Versions/A/XPCServices/com.apple.qtkitserver.xpc/Contents/MacOS/com.apple.qtkitserver

This has been happening to me for months, prior to upgrading to OS X Mavericks today. I have reinstalled the OS from the Recovery Partition several times, but it has not fixed the problem. Full crash report attached.

Anybody have ideas why this is happening? This is a very annoying, frustrating issue. I have previously resorted to renaming or moving this process altogether to prevent it from running in the first place, but every time I run a system update, the problem resurfaces. Obviously, this is a poor temporary hack and I would rather not do this every time I update OS X.

Any and all advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Okay, I tried that. Now I just have to wait for awhile to see if I keep getting that same error message or if it disappears. Thanks for your help.

Do you have any Safari extensions? I think you need to look into flash2html5 of clicktoflash.

Seems the converter or detector for these plugins might have problems or need to be updated.

These are the only Safari extensions I currently have installed/active (see attached screenshot). Would any of them be causing a problem or incompatibility? I highly doubt it, as none of them deal with QuickTime videos.

Please let me know your thoughts at your convenience. Thanks!

This problem is resolved. I believe an OS X update fixed it. I'm currently running 10.9.1 and have not experienced this issue for awhile.
