Hi there, I did an upgrade and installation went fine. Upon some initial testing I noticed that Quicklook did not preview jpgs, mp3 and mp4. It just showed a spinner. The preview app only displays pdfs but not jpgs. Is anyone else having this issue?
Thanks

Humm, what a bummer. But I guess you can't expect everything to work on a beta can you?

I have this issue too. And the app "preview" will crash when I open jpg files.

There are numerous applications that don't work Preview, FaceTime, iMovie and probably numerous others but that is what happens with Beta software.

I'm having the same problem with preview.

Just a note to the "what do you expect form beta comments"....NOT HELPFUL. The question is being asked because we don't know if it's a beta problem or hackintosh problem.

@n19htz thanks.... I kinda figured. Unfortunately, I have my MacBook to wifey, and all I have is my hackintosh now as I just sold off my Mac Pro (it will be missed). My question, being new to the world of Hackintosh, is do we wait for finally 10.14 for a fix??

I have same problem when I open jpg/jpeg files on Desktop too.
On laptop Acer Aspire E5-571P I don't have that problem with Preview.
