AVID MC install woes...
on Nov 17, 2011 at 8:47:00 pm

Been a FCP guy for years, but I was hoping to try out Media Composer 5.5 to see if a switch was in order. Unfortunately, I've yet to get past the startup screen.

Every time I launch I receive a "Failed to intialize audio hardware" pop-up, followed by the dreaded "Segmentation fault" in thread "Main thread" error.

Looking online at various threads, I've tried the following:

- Making sure I have QT Player 10.0
- Removing the "Caption" plug-in
- using the "safe" 10.6.8 Combo upgrade
- trashing prefs, etc.

I have no peripherals plugged in when I launch.

Any help you can lend would be awesome.

Uninstall, then reinstall Avid. Simple 10 min thing. See if that does thing.

Well if you're trying 5.5 make sure it's Avid 5.5.3 for OSX 10.6.8. But now MC 6 is out so why not try that. And uninstall old one first.

do you have any outside audio plugins...trying the remember the name...i think the logo is a flower or something like that? They help convert audio from various sources inside the mac...soundflower???

The reason i can't remember the name is because i had the same problem, but once i removed it and reinstalled, everything worked.

Glenn --

Where are you located? Because, if you're ever in the LA area, I owe you a beer.

I looked up some other threads on Soundflower. I went to the cycling74.com site, installed Soundflower and then uninstalled it. After a restart, MC booted up just fine.

Thanks for sending me in the right direction. Chalk another one up for the COW.
