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 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.

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.

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?

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?

Used by itself, Quicktime can be a useful set of media tools; after being upgraded to its Pro version, one can edit and convert - a fairly good investment. It wasn't designed to have the same precise control of other standalone software; and its editing controls are imprecise at best. Perhaps the main flaw comes from the fact that VLCPlayer offers a more comprehensive playback package - for free.

No more Quicktime for us G5 folks, I guess. I'm curious if anyone knows how many working Mac computers out there are still PPC? What's the percentage difference between PPCs and Intels? Are there that many more Intels in use, so that Apple has dropped support for their computers only 5 years old?

Younkint: In point of fact, there are more Intel Macs in service now than PPC machines by a wide margin. Many millions more, in fact. From 2001 to mid-2006, Apple sold about 18 million PPC Macs total (none of the figures I'm using include iPods or iPhones of any type -- just Macintosh computers). Let's assume, for the sake of argument, that EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM is still running. I'm being *incredibly* generous on the numbers on your side of this equation, btw. (the totals above are sourced, btw, from Apple's own quarterly reports as compiled by Gartner.) So Apple has been selling all-Intel macs and nothing but intel-based Macs since mid-2006. From mid-2006 to mid-2010, Apple has sold at least 36M Intel based Macs, more than double the number of PPC Macs sold from 2001 to mid-2006. In fact, Apple has sold as many Intel-based Macs in four years as the total number of PPC Macs sold from 1996 to the end of the PPC era in mid-2006, a period of over 10 years. In short, your assertion that PPC Macs outnumber Intel-based Macs is simply laughable.

Thank very much you LVDOC, for indicating a way to go against Apple's tentative to prevent QT 7.6 from being the default app for .mov films. Concerning the other inacceptable limitations of the new QT versions, I forgot to mention the fact that it is no longer possible to have several QT windows opened simultaneously. Progress, indeed.

Oh, the mis-information here about QT X. Boggles. Apple is still maintaining Quicktime 7 Player for the older QT Pro users who are still used to the older timecode / video editing workflow. You can install Quicktime as a custom install from your Snow Leopard DVD, and the reason there's no explicit update for Snowy is because the QT 7.66 update is built into the 10.63 update. I just checked my QT7 player and guess what? It's already 7.66. Apple is being reeeeeeeeally nice to PPC users, in that you're getting as much under the hood fixes as anyone on Intel who's running Snow Leopard right now. It just doesn't look as pretty, but thems the breaks.

I HATE this app. - It is incredibly slow (both for loading films and exporting them) and it had better be called SLOWTime - It cannot edit .wmv movies without paying an extra for Flip4Mac (even when the pro QT has been bought) - It can no longer be chosen as the default app for opening .mov films. It = s now a Ugly QT 10 (why TEN ?!) which imposes itself at each time (there's NO WAY to get read of this QT10 reader's priority. Congratulation to Apple for its user friendliness and system's customizability Indeed, the last good version of QT was 6.5.2 (unusable on intel). It provided quickly some very useful functions like removing at once the video or the audio track. Now, with QT7, one as to export the whole movie just to remove a track. QT7 is so clumsy and limited - even in its paying "PRO" version - that it is no surprise Apple does not install it automatically on the new Macs. One is clearly pushed to buy Final Cut.

It's sad that QuickTime is called "The multimedia cornerstone of Mac OS X." It is a terrible application. For years I've had to rely on alternative programs to play different media, and as of version 7.6.4 this is still the case. Fortunately there's VLC, MPlayer, Perian, WMV Player, etc. QuickTime is not good enough on its own, and the lack of upgrade path for Pro users adds insult to injury.

I don't know if this happens on other sites with QT content, but thismight be a bug that needs to addressed. I this helps, I downloaded from software update.

At least it's stable, but basicallly agree with everything said by POIKKEUS below. VLC player does most of my playback, as well if not better than Quicktime Player or any other. Quicktime still needs to sort it's AVI, Xvid and all the other flavours of codec before even competing with VLC. Even the Pro version doesn't come close. Getting there Apple, but you need to get the basics right first.

No one player takes top honors. It's hard to ignore the advantages of VLC: flexible, free, easy to use. It accepts a wider spectrum of media (including a number that Quicktime outright rejects), and easily plays subtitles. Most of the time, I find myself using VLC, if only because you can play just about anything. In its Pro version, Quicktime has its own special advantages. It's much more capable at audio/video editing, and significantly more stable with large files. There's a slight bump in speed, as well. I find myself using both, but can't imagine doing my computing with only one. VLC fulfills 70% of my needs, but Quicktime (Pro) fills in the gaps . One only wishes that the latter, an essential app, could view a wider variety of content.

I am still very disappointed that Quicktime does not support playing DVDs yet, like VLC does. I find the Apple DVD player outdated and useless after changing the region code 5 times. Was the region code system not abolished in the late 1990's? I travel a lot and now after only a short time, needing to change the region codes 5 times, I have to depend on VLC to play my DVDs, which come from various countries. Why does Apple still have to follow such outdated codes when everyone else doesn't ? I suggest Apple should concentrate on one media player that does everything-- Quicktime, DVD Player, Front Row -- all should be one application--region free. Wasn't Apple able to think of such a thing yet ? Most surprisingly not. If any legal problems would arise out of this, I'm sure Apple's legal department could take care.

I would love to recommend this version of QuickTime. That is, assuming it worked. Massive numbers of playback issues have been reported about this version on forums all over the world. Apparently it is incompatible with Rosetta, and the webplugin messes up all QuickTime content in Safari, but my problems have been with the application itself. QuickTime Pro Version 7.2 has a stated minimum system requirement of a G3 400 MHz system with 128MB of RAM, but it can't even play videos on my G4 800 with 1GB of RAM, let alone record them. It records H.264 format at a whopping 1.67 fps - that's less than 18 percent of normal framerate - and it even messes up device native recording (which is essentially supposed to be just DV passthrough). Installing this program screwed up every other program I have that depends on QuickTime components (BTV Pro, Vidi, Formac TVR). What more can I say: there's a reason why this site has links to previous versions and reinstallers. Avoid it like the plague if you have less than a 1GHz processor. Stick with something earlier (and more stable) or wait until they create a new version that works.

From MacInTouch.com: "The folks at Unsanity may finally have unravelled the mystery of randomly-disastrous Apple software updates: Shock and Awe: How Installing Apple's Updates can Render Your Mac Unbootable and How You Can Prevent it ... When you see the "Optimizing System Performance" phase of a software update, Mac OS X is really updating prebinding. Updating prebinding has a very, very nasty bug in it (look at _dyld_update_prebinding). If multiple processes are updating prebinding at the same time, then it is possible for a system file to be completely zero'd out. Basically, all data in the file is deleted and it is replaced with nothing. This bug is usually triggered when updating Mac OS X and every update to Mac OS X has the potential to render your system unbootable depending on if the "right" file is deleted or not. It's triggered during the "Optimizing System Performance" phase of installing an update. This phase is actually just running update_prebinding. If you launch an application that links to libraries that are not yet prebound, there is a chance one of those files will be zero'd out as dyld automatically redoes the prebinding on that file. I've been tracking this particular bug for about 18 months now. Most of the real "random" failures reported on various Mac OS X "troubleshooting" sites after a user has installed an Apple software update are actually manifestations of this bug. By real I mean not imagined problems or ones that have been there for a very long time but the user is just now noticing it and artificially connecting the cause to the recent update (it's called Pareidolia). Yes, this nasty prebinding bug has been reported to Apple and yes, it is 100% reproducible if you want to reproduce it. Every single time you install an update to Mac OS X whether it be an iTunes update, a QuickTime update, an update for daylight saving time, a security update, an Airport update, or an actual Mac OS X update, you can be hit by this bug. In order to prevent yourself from being smacked in the face by this bug, follow this simple rule: When "Optimize System Performance" appears during the update process do not touch your computer and definitely do not launch any applications. Just back away from your computer box as if it were a swarm of bees. Yes, it does mean that if you install the Mac OS X 10.4.9 update, you may get hit by the bug."

Cannot recommend for slower computers. QT7.04 (and 7 in gerneral) runs very poorly on our iMacs (FP 800 w/768 RAM OS X10.3.9.) I think the system specs for this version should be refined to include min. hardware, speed, and RAM, etc.

QuickTime is back! After running the installer and rebooting, I played an mpeg1 movie (Killer Dill from the internet archive.) Full screen with a bunch of other apps running, there was no stuttering and the audio and video stayed in sync.

It says it supports AVIs, but it just doesnt. I tried installing a codec, but it still has problems with sound and picture quality. im having to use mplayer at the moment, but its really annoying having to switch between the two all the time. Also, it means i cant put avis in idvd or imovie, because they both have the same problems ( i assume the use quicktime in some way?). Is there any way i can play AVIs properly in Quicktime? (e.g without crappy sound and picture quality) Any help would be apprecited.

As with previous "upgrades" of qt, 7 gives and takes away. I keep 6 pro on my desktop and downloaded 7 for my laptop. except for big, fat HD downloads, I've never had a problem with 6, and it lets you actually *save* a movie - gosh! I remember when 5 regular let you show full screen. 6 disabled that unless you had pro. feature rot - stick with 6

Anyone else experience the inability to show movies in "full screen" with this update? I tried watching a movie double size and all I got was the same size movie with twice as big black border. Full-screen showed the whole screen black with the unscaled movie in the corner. Things worked fine before.

Not ready for prime time. Caused Quicktime clips extracted from dvds to stagger and stall on my powerbook, and even sometimes on my dual G5. Reinstalled 7.0.1 and the problem was fixed. Ruined several lectures and wasted hours and hours.

Important update (er, bug fix): after installing Tiger (10.4.2, that is), Apple's very own webcasts, for instance, did not play, and I mean: hardly play at all, let alone at sufficient quality. When I applied the 7.0.2-update everything is back to normal, i.e. to a quality/framerate reasonable good given my aging (but trusty) G3-Powerbook. For reference purposes: G3, 400 MHz, 1Mbit-DSL.

Looks like 7.0.2 fixed the problem with some of the AVI files from my wife's digital camera stuttering during playback on her eMac. So far my only gripe is that Apple didn't post a list of the most important changes.

upgraded to 7.0.2 and initially had no probs on my mac mini. however, after a reboot my new copy of quicktime will not play back audio for streaming movies (wanted to watch Jobs latest webcast!) and it also fails to playback audio for .mpg files too. Weird thing is tho' audio is ok for .mov movies?! It also appears that some games i have (namely command & conquer) are having audio issues too. Maybe some at Apple needs a good kick up the a!$e for this as there appears to be no way of unistalling back to my previous workable version of quicktime. many thanks mr. Jobs!

Finally! Quicktime 7 has been very buggy, until now (7.02 update). Went back through my library and opened all the files Quicktime 7 had problems with. It plays everything now. No problems, no glitches, no spinning weels with avi files. Time to retire VLC... until QT8 comes out.

Be very careful before you install this. Many features available on QT 6.5 are disabled on QT7. If you upgrade to 10.4 you can't get 6.5 back. So backup 6.5 or pay extra! You don't expect to get less functionality when you upgrade your OS!

I've never seen apple release an update and also allow you to de-install it and go backwards. With the Quartz Composer objects vunerablity maybe Apple didn't trust its own software? So why did they release it? Now virus writers have a better route map into OSX and we all have the inconvenience of removing quicktime 7 untill 7.5 in a year or so (at least 7.5 for me I think, maybe quicktime 8.1). Thank you apple I had nothing better to do with my time.

7.0.1: No damage here. 7.0 worked *okay* on my Mac, but I don't get much performance from the new H.264 codec, for example, and I don't expect to because I have a 900MHz G3 iBook (OS X 10.3.9) which just can't handle the strain... poor li'l ol' G3.

I think QT 7 is nice - for those who don't see an improvement over Quicktime 6, have a look at the high definition trailers on Apple's movie trailers site. I have to say though, that I agree that I am frequently using other players (VLC and MPlayer) to view videos that I think we should be able to watch with QT. I really wish we could have ports of older codecs to view our older format videos (the old intel codecs, for example - IV5, etc). Yeah, I hate those old codecs, too - but I sure wish I could use QT to view or convert them.

I use to love quicktime but now I am finding myself trying to use other ways to play videos. I am not able to watch videos as I download them. I have to finish the complete download in order for me to see it without pauses and even then, it's rare that I can see something without and flaws. version 6.x was a great version. This is more of a downgrade than an upgrade. Stick to your old version and wait for a update especially if you don't have a new Mac. Mine is th e933mhz and it runs terrible. So far, I am not pleased with Tiger and Quicktime!

Quicktime 7 is a rather flaky upgrade, and I'd suggest sticking with Quicktime 6.x until Quicktime 7 is updated. Cosmetic issues (such as flawed window redrawing when the Quictime window is resized) and audio issues (especially during audio streaming) abound.

In QT7 player you are no longer allowed to select and play segments of MPEG1 files. Also CPU usage is high (20% on my G5 just playing an mp3). Useless 'live resizing' works though

Do you want QT 7 Pro for free! It's possible if you have QT 6 Pro. Here's what to do!: 1. Download QT7 but not install it yet. 2. Create new folder in applications folder. 3. Drag your QT 6 Pro to this new folder. 4. Now run QT7 installer. It says that the old QuickTime is on Your computer and you must buy a new key to go pro. Ignore it. 5. When install is finished, restart your computer. 6. Now go to the folder you have created in Applications folder. Run your old QT6 Pro. Nothing changed? Open movie you want to export. Chose Export button. Choose "Export to QuickTime Movie" and click "options". Then click "settings" and...WOW! Now you have all new video compressions ( including H.264 ). -------- If you want to open QT7 it's not a problem. Go to applications and choose QuickTime Player. This is QT7. So, You have 2 QuickTimes installed on your computer. Apple says that you can't use 2 different QuickTimes. But it is possible. He, he, he. --------- I'm waiting for your opinion about this trick/tips ( that I have discovered ) - andy@cgs.com.pl And sorry for my English - I'm from Poland and I'm 19.

I was impressed with the new on screen controls when playing a movie full screen, however I am very distressed that some .AVI files no longer play sound. VLC does however, so I might stick with that for now. I would like to think that every new version only builds on the successes of the last, sadly this was not entirely true for this latest version of quicktime.
