I can not understand why people rate this software so bad. Even if it is not supported for 64 bit applications, it is still working for 32 bit applications (i.e. on Mavericks).
Together with the two QuickTime extensions Flip4Mac (WMV) and Perian (AVI, DivX, MKV and others) it can read / play all common video formats.
Everybody know the videos which play video and audio un-synchronized - this will only happen if QuickTime is not used.

It's just that open source software like VLC play back video much much better than Quicktime Player. Even .mov files.

Sorry, but you can not compare QuickTime with VLC.

VLC is just (!) a player, whereas QuickTime is much more:
1.) Convert and edit videos (cut / copy / paste), create new videos, and much more.
2.) QT VR (panoramas) can still not be played by VLC.
3.) I would (not) like to dispute if VLC is really playing videos better than QT.

It looks as if this app is no longer being developed. A pity, for it was quite acceptable 4 years ago...
Its most striking proof of neglect is the disrespect of Apple GUI code (eg the green dot in the window bar for enlarging the view does not even work).
A stain on Apple's image.

I don't think Apple is ever going to fix the broken Software Update in Leopard. iTunes will get updated to the very latest version, but Quicktime? Nope. It'll remain at sub-7.5.5 levels, which means you have to manually run out and get it because iTunes WON'T WORK without it! What the heck Apple? This has been a problem for months! Anyone doing a clean install of Leopard could be in for a rather rude awakening, especially if they don't know enough to go hunting for QT 7.7.

Perian is a free plug-in that works discretely in your system preference pane. It allows Quicktime to play formats which are currently unavailable to play. Keep me updated if you have any queries.

On a clean installed Lion system, I did something (that I can't recall) with a video file that triggered being prompted to install QuickTime Player 7 (similar to what happens with Java). Is that familiar to anyone and do you know what can cause it? Thanks.

Helpful info from Apple:

"A Mac OS X v10.6 and OS X Lion-compatible version of QuickTime Player 7 is available for use with older media or with AppleScript-based workflows. QuickTime Player 7 can be used to playback formats such as QTVR, interactive QuickTime Movies, and MIDI files. Also, it supports QuickTime 7 Pro registration codes for access to QuickTime Pro functionality."

Sure am glad that I kept QuickTime Player 7.6.6 on my new MacBook Pro with equally new Apple external display. QTPlayer 7.6.6 lets me do what QT Player 10.1 will not: play movies on my secondary screen.

Incredible blunder on the part of Apple devs to create a QT Player that will NOT play movies on a secondary screen. Gee, thanks guys!

I think I am not alone in wondering what I get for my money and what exactly the difference is between QuickTime Pro and QuickTime Player 10.

I am on Snow Leopard and the principle 2 things I want to do is trim movies accurately and to capture tutorials form the web to view offline.

It would be nice if I could also create tutorials, combining text and video but that is not the main reason for upgrading.

QT Pro is not cheap and I really would like to know it it will work not just in SL but Lion in the future.

Any advice?

Some of what you want to do can be done in MPEG Streamclip -which is free- Cut & edit and convert movies. Also the only program I've seen that allows you to fix timecode errors. And it's FREE. Love it.

The installer for OS 10.7 Lion no longer offers an optional QuickTime 7 installation. So I crossed my fingers and downloaded this, but the QT 7.7 installer wouldn't allow it to install in Lion, and the .mpkg installer won't even allow looking int3o it.

Does anyone know another way to install a version of QT that will work in Lion — and where to find it?

I may be misinterpreting. Assuming you already have Quicktime 7 installed in 10.6x, does it no longer work when you upgrade to Lion?

My QT 7.6.6 installation that was installed under 10.6 still runs under 10.7, although I haven't used it since installing Lion since QuickTime X (under Lion) has all the features that were in QuickTime 7 Pro but not in QuickTime X under Snow Lion.

Ok, I upgraded from SL to Lion and Quicktime 7 was on my HD than and is still on my HD and works fine. I checked and the version is 7.7.1 (2246). It must have upgraded with the Lion install (I had no reason to check before). If that was the case, than this release is to bring SL users up-to-date. My two cents.

My bad. I checked Apple's website and for SL, QT 7.6.6 is the current version. QT 7.7 is only for Leo users.

According to Jon Walker in the Apple Support Communities:

"Since the changes are predicated on OS and not feature enrichment, the changes are issued as needed to improve performance and/or security concerns for the associated operating system."

So, if you are using SL, than you are fine with QT 7.6.6. If you are using Leo, you should upgrade to QT 7.7. And for Lion, all I can say is that the version that is on my HD is QT 7.7.1.

My two cents. :-)

GeoProf replied on 03 Aug 2011
I should have explained that I did a clean install of Lion (wiped the HD, then installed it) in order to obtain the system speed improvement that only a clean install can deliver. Even when there’s no OS update, I still back up and clean install the OS every 10 months or so because it defrags your HD (sort of) and nukes all the cruft accumulated from installing & uninstalling new apps, working with large video files, etc. Afterward, I usually startup from a different drive and open Disk Utility to fix my new Lion installation’s permissions and run Repair Disk, then I run DiskWarrior on it — all of which are now NECESSARY after installing Lion — especially DiskWarrior — because its installer does a worse job of optimizing and cleaning up than previous OS installers (don’t know why). Then I run CleanMyMac or some other such program to get rid of all the language files, the PPC component of 3rd party Universal Binary apps. etc.

This time ‘round I got a substantially larger increase in speed compared to the 3 Snow Leopard clean re-installs I performed during its tenure on my machines, which IMHO verifies up Apple’s claim that Lion is an overall faster beast than previous cats, though that may simply be a function of switching to a more or less pure 64-bit system, but I doubt it.

Anyway, clean installing Lion means you will trash everything from the previous OS — including QuickTime 7.6. So now I have to find and separately install it.

Thanks for all your help and opinions!

To clarify, there are two version #s associated with QuickTime... that for QuickTime Player (which under Lion for me is 7.6.6 (1710)) and that for QuickTime itself (which under Lion for me is 7.7.1 (2246)).

Can anyone with 10.6.8 tell us what those versions # are for them (load QuickTime Player 7 and choose "About").

Also, any reason to really use QT7 under Lion anymore? I used it a lot under SL for the Pro features, but those are now in QuickTime X 10.1 under Lion.

Jean-Loup, no I didn't try to install "QuickTime Player 7.6.6 for Mac OS X v10.6.3" because everyone's great replies to this post got me to thinking that QT X in Lion may be more functional than I thought it was, so I checked it out more thoroughly and discovered that you're all right -- QT X now has everything QT 7.6.x had on Snow Leopard. My post, which kicked off this thread, was written when I thought QT X in Lion is still hobbled like it was in SL -- dopey me!

The help file is broken/missing. When I click a link inside the QuickTime Help window it does not navigate. And when I search a topic it does find results, but when I click on a result it does not navigate.

I called Apple Care and was elevated to a so-called specialist who was clueless. Is anyone else having a problem with getting the help file to work?

Two things:

!) I've noticed it's not just changing the system's focus, it's actually restarting the finder every couple minutes. Icons blink, system focus changes, and any open finder windows close.

2) Reverting back to an older version of Quicktime doesn't stop this from happening.

Unfortenatly this update broke the ability to load MPEG2 video track together with .wav or .aif audio - e.g. when you click on .m2v /MPEG2 Video track/ and if you have the .wav audio with the same name in same folder as video, QT 7.4 wont open audio, only video...Which is a dissaster for many apps including mine - MPEG2 Works 4..Now I have to figure it out what a hell is goin on again..
