It has been a long time since I had Snow Leopard, so my memory may not be too good. But I had to install the current version of QT7 from the Snow Leopard Install disks. I think you go to the Utilities section of the Installer.
I just checked and I have QTP 7.6.6 which I believe came with Snow Leopard. You will need that one. You can have QTP 7.6.6 and QTP X on the same machine.

Mac OS X 10.6 includes QuickTime versions 10.0 and 7.6.3. The QuickTime 7 player will only be present if a QuickTime Pro key was present at the time of installation, or if specified as part of a custom install, or individually downloaded:
Snow Leopard update 10.6.4 included an update to 7.6.6 (if installed). You can install it from the above link even though it says for 10.6.3. It's the same version of QuickTime Player 7.6.6.
(Only QuickTime Player 7.6.3 or 7.6.6 can be updated to "Pro".)
A Mac OS X v10.6, OS X Lion, and OS X Mountain 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.
How to install Quicktime Player 7 on Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion when it is not already present:

Thanks for your reply. My whole problem began when I first upgraded from QTP 7.5.5 to QTP 7.6 and that's when I found out that only 7.5.5 would work properly in HD6.
Does this mean that I can't have 7.5.5 with Snow Leopard?

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately when I upgraded to QTP 7.6 a long time ago is when it all went wrong and I had to revert to QTP 7.5.5. which was the last QTP that worked properly with iMovie HD6.
This suggests that I have to give up on Snow Leopard. Or do you think there might be a work around?

7.6.6 is working for me in Snow Leopard, Lion, and Mountain Lion, but I have not tested it extensively. I use mainly iMovie 11 and Final Cut Pro X so you may have found a bug that eluded me.

Unfortunately I don't.
6.0.4 was introduced as a free offering to anyone who purchased iLife 08 and wanted the old version. When iLife 09 was introduced, it was withdrawn. To get it, you had to purchase iLife 08 and download it during that year.
I went back and double checked and guess what? Senility is sinking in. I had 6.0.3 (267.2) all along. This makes sense because I had already paid for iLife 06 so I did not need the free download.
My QuickTIme Player says QuickTIme Player 7.6.6 / with QuickTime 7.7.1 underneath. I do not have QT Pro, since I haven't found anything I needed it for.
The good news is that it is working for me with 6.0.3 and QTP 7.6.6. Like I said I haven't tested it thoroughly. Just a couple of DV projects to see if I could see any difference with iMovie 11 when I was selling my 8MM camera on eBay.

I only used iMovie HD6 which I obtained via my new iMac with iLife 08 installed. I don't like iMovie 11 and don't need any Pro versions. As I said, it seems that anything later than QTP 7.5.5 will not allow stills to run.
Have you tried inserting any stills into the time line of iMovie HD6 to see if they run properly with QTP 7.6.6?

My understanding is that iMovie HD 6.0.3 and iMovie HD 6.0.4 are identical.The former originating from an install disk with upgrade, the latter a download for those that had iMovie 08 as was your case.
I run Snow Leopard and I have iMovie HD 6.0.4 and QuickTime 7.6.6 .
Although Snow Leopard came with QT X I downloaded QT 7.6.6 from the Apple site as mentioned above by Klaus 1.
I have recently used iMovie HD 6.0.4 with many stills plus video in the same project and all was ok. I can't see why it is not working for you.
