  • Resolution set to invalid

First, we don't discuss unreleased OSs. Second, the mention of "Error: extraction of AC3MovieImport.component failed" has been already discussed several times over.

For #2, please verify that ~/Library/QuickTime? is owned by your user, and not owned by root.

...and if it is owned by root file a bug at, not here - the problem is caused by another 3rd party installer, but they can fix it. In general problems with unreleased operating system should start with OS bug reports.
