Dear all,

I did have the problem before and have it again. This time I'm not able to solve this. It is not a PyQt5 problem, it is a qwebview widget problem that has been reported before. When I load a qwebview (widget) with youtube as an URL then it refuses to load/display the site page and returns an error like this:
Error loading /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/QuickTime Plugin.plugin/Contents/MacOS/QuickTime Plugin:
dlopen(/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/QuickTime Plugin.plugin/Contents/MacOS/QuickTime Plugin, 265): no suitable image found. 

Did find:
/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/QuickTime Plugin.plugin/Contents/MacOS/QuickTime Plugin: mach-o, but wrong architecture 

This happens on a fresh install of yosemite 10.10.5. 
The first time I could solve the problem by removing/moving the offending QuickTime plugin away from the path specified in the error.
This time I did the same (for the system wide and my personal Library paths) but without succes. 

I also did set PluginsEnabled to False but that has no effect either. 

How to get the real good binary for the QuickTime plugin OR how to to solve this with or without plugins (I bet on HTML5 technology so I don't care to drop support for plugins).

Creative solutions (fake plugin?) are welcome too.
