Almost forgot all the install details for Snow Leopard. This package installs without issue on Sno. Take note, it is intended only for the Quicktime v. 7 series app that is an optional install in Snow Leopard. So if you have Snow Leopard and Quicktime v.7 installed and want to install this interface, you need to some pre-flight prep: 1. The directory the installer will muck around in is /Applications/QuickTimePlayer/Contents/Resources But wait... that's QuickTimePlayerX we're talking about these days. The directory you really want to install in is /Applications/QuicktimePlayer7/Contents/Resources or wherever it is you have put QT 7, some have it in the Utilities folder. 2. So you gotta do something to make it all work. There are other ways of doing this, but the quick and dirty (and easiest) way (for me anyway) was to change permissions/ownership on QTX from system to me and rename it something else temporarily. Do it through the "Get Info" window, make your name change right there in the window, and leave it open. Don't lock it or close it - this will save you a few keystrokes in the end. 3. Now do the same to QuicktimePlayer7, make yourself the owner and lose the number "7" in the app's name. Leave the "Get Info" window open. 4. Install SlimTimePro (ha). 5. Now go back to the respective "Get Info" windows and return the apps to their proper name. Then, in the permissions areas, just click and choose "Revert Changes" to revert your changes back to their original state - where system was owner of both apps. 6. That's all. Launch QT7 and thank God for that great interface!

Yes, I am a day late and a dollar short... but I've been using this brilliant update to the outdated and rather chunky Panther-esque QT 7 default interface from the very second it was posted on MacUpdate (well, almost... I think I was the 5 or 6 person to download it). The developer was kind enough to share what is really a stunning saving grace... for free... and after the ruckus that some people made about its name and then MacUpdate's name change (did the dev even agree to the name change? I can't remember...) he was so chill not to yank it down. Kind of a shame that so many people suffered through the ugliness of the last days of QT in Leopard, and still continue to suffer if QT7 is installed on SnoLeo for the various reasons it might be needed. I just upgraded to SnoLeo myself on one of my boxes and I need QT7 for some work I do and I had to pull out my archive of installers and found that this was missing! came back here, link was dead. Thankfully, still available on the dev's site. So Dustin, if you see this, thanks again for sharing your work... I have a lot of appreciation for your design aesthetic.

I'd sometimes had lingering thoughts about the buttons in QuickTime being too large, and SlimTime Pro not only affirms that, but does away with the problem by greatly 'slimming' down the interface, making the buttons a fraction of their former size. Don't get me wrong, the buttons are still very clickable, they're just now at a reasonable size. My one and only gripe with SlimTime Pro, however, is unlike QuickTime's default appearance (and iTunes for that matter), the bottom bar is no longer draggable; I'm very used to being able to grab just about anywhere and drag the window around, but instead I'm forced to go up to the top of the window and grab the bar to move it around. That aside, SlimTime Pro is a huge improvement over the bloated interface that resides at the bottom of every QuickTime window, and I'm more than willing to look past that tiny caveat and appreciate how much nicer and unobtrusive QuickTime becomes =) However, it should be noted that if you have trouble getting the installer to run (I was greeted with a mysterious lack of any kind of window), I recommend installing the latest version of QuickTime (currently 7.6), and then running SlimTime Pro's installer.

It's not a big deal man. Calm down. First of all, this isn't an application, so there shouldn't be any confusion between an application and a 'package.' Second of all, QuickTime Pro really isn't the name of any application. Even when you include a serial to make "QuickTime Player" become QuickTime Pro the name of the application is still "QuickTime Player." Here's a thought...how about you leave the decision making to the people who do the work and you sit back and relax? PS: The decision for not calling this Slimtime Pro was that I already have an older release (albeit not as good) called Slimtime. I didn't want to create any undo confusion. Which I haven't. ;)

Why would you call your software Quicktime Pro in any case, knowing that this software title is already taken, and not by a minor application? Baffling. Let me suggest you do everyone a favour and just change the software's name to SlimTime Player (or perhaps, "SlickTime Player"?).

Sorry guys, I had released this earlier on a forum I frequent, and had received no notification that it didn't work on Tiger. Just to clarify, I guess it doesn't work. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks for downloading, and I hope you enjoy ;)

Although the requirements say OS X 10.4, the zip archive unpacks into a .pkg that on Tiger pops an alert saying "This package type requires Mac OS X 10.5"

To the developer: unless you want Apple Legal all over you, change the (original) name of this product PRONTO.
