You must purchase Quicktime Pro - QuickTime 7 Pro for Mac
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 6, 2012 5:42 PM (in response to esaline)
There is no pro version of Quicktime X. The pro version is for version 7. Quicktime X has some of the features of Quicktime Pro 7. Is there something in particular you are looking to do?
If you don't have it, I think this is the correct Quictime 7 for Lion: http://support.apple.com/kb/dl923 . Purchase of a QT Pro activation key will turn it into the Pro version.

Yes, I purchased the pro version because I wanted the editing functionality rather than a simple player which appears to be the case with the quicktime x version which came stock on the machine.

I can't seem to find where to enter the pro key code.

You may not be all that impressed. With respect to editing, I believe QT X and QT 7 Pro are about the same. QT 7 Pro has more export options, though.
You enter the registration key by going to the menu item QuickTime Player 7/Registration. Type the registration code into the box.
Irregardless of the editing features, I use QT 7 whenever possible because I do not like the floating play controls in QT X. They cover up the video. Very annoying to have them in the way when you are scrubbing through a video.

Right, there isn't a 'registration' option for quicktime x though. So, is my only option to install QT 7 over the top of QT X?

They are separate apps. You will have both of them.

Sorry - that is not true under snow leopard.
- I also want to upgrade Quicktime X to a version that will allow editiing. But when I attempted to download Quicktime 7 so I could upgrade to Pro, the OS informed me that I couldn't do that because version X was installed.
- When I attempted to install 7 on an external drive, I was told it had to be on the boot drive.
- When I attempted to remove the X version through Applications, I was told it could not be removed because it was part of the operating system.
All I want to do is be able to cut segments out of MOV files and NOT compress them. iMovie, even when saving MOV files to MOV, compresses them. I just want to trim MOV files. What other non-Apple software can I use that JUST trims MOV files and nothing else?

for instructions on downloading and installing QT 7 under Lion.

You can have both. I know because I have both. But you have to install the correct version of QT 7 or you will get the error you saw. I think the link in my earlier post points to the correct version and it is the same link that is in the knowledgebase article.

<http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3678> sounds easy, but problem is that it says the QT7 is installed in your Utilities folder; however, it is imposssible to find a folder called "Utilities" ...? After installation, how do you find and invoke QT7?
Currently Being ModeratedJun 2, 2013 9:27 PM (in response to superman3gsm)
OK, I found it ... Utilities is a subfolder under Applications.
I ran QT7 now and entered my registration code for QTPro for Win7 ... and discovered that QTPro for Win != QTPro for mac ... so you have to purchase it a second time. OK, this is getting way too expensive and not worth it. Why does Apple have to make this so complex and expensive? arghh.

I had the same issue as the OP and wasted money buying an upgrade license for Quicktime 7 when I have Quicktime X (or at least the Quicktime Player -- not even sure if they are the same) that came with Mountain Lion -- thanks Apple! Anyway, I recommend ImageJ. Follow the installation instructions exactly, and then when it opens, look at the menu bar because the window is very minimalistic and won't show you anything unless you have files open. It seems to be quite a powerful program. Many plugins are available, and best of all it's free.
