After choosing a file location to save a screen recording, the movie will start to save, then it says "Cannot Open" and nothing is saved. I can retry but it still doesn't. I just saved a video before this. It's on macOS High Sierra. 10.13.1. This same issue is plastered all over the Apple.com help forums but there are no answers.
QuickTime is Version 10.4 (928.5.1) - the version that came with my MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016).
After the saving progress bar gets to about 1/4, it flashes "cannot open this media may be damaged quicktime" then "Cannot Open"
I'll add a video below to show exactly what
To debug, I did confirm that a 5 second video with voiceover could save. However, a 25 minute video will not. I closed that video and recorded another screen recording for 10 minutes long and same issue. In the past I've been able to record 10-30 minute videos and save. Now it only allows small videos.
