Does anybody know if there is a version of quicktime that works with 64-bit OS (as add-on) so far up to version 7.6 when I get an embedded mp3 file, I get no controls for it, all I see is a black strip, then I noticed that quicktime has the *32 next to it and found out that most media players that are 32-bit will not run properly on browsers when the system is 64-bit

Windows Vista, I'm a PC and I would like to run MAC OSX on a PC

    There is a version of QuickTime that will install on Vista 64-bit, but to the best of my knowledge the software is still 32-bit. The only workaround I can think of would be to see if you can force the browser to run as 32-bit; I don't have 64-bit Vista so I don't know if that's an option.

    I am having the same problem. When a quicktime file loads in explorer or firefox, the movie plays but there is a black bar where the controls should be.

    Argh . . . same here. Black bar instead of controls. Plus, I can't play .mov files at all . . . I just get the Quicktime logo and a loading indicator that never goes away.

    Hi,
    I'm also on x64. I have 2 systems, one on XP x64 and one on Windows 7 RC1 x64.
    I've had the black bar problem ever since I installed my first x64 system in 2006. I can't believe that after 3+ years it's still there. And it's not only me, everybody I know on x64 (be it XP, Vista or 7) has the same problem.

    Note that I don't use a x64 browser, I use x86 Firefox, so the plugin doesn't need to be x64. The movies play fine, but there's this ugly glitch with the UI. I'm a bit of a techie guy myself, and this isn't (or more importantly, shouldn't be) something that's that hard to fix.

    x64 users need some attention, that's all. I write here because 3 years of patience have gone nowhere..

    I have the same problem with quicktime with the black bars and not being able to see the controls. It happens in all my browsers (Firefox, IE, Chrome and even Safari which I thought was funny because seeing that Safari is Apple's own thing, I would have thought there wouldn't be an issue with it, but there is). I hope this issue gets fixed soon, because its getting really annoying to blindly click where I think things should be.

    I signed up for the forum just to say the same thing. It still isnt fixed, and it a bit usability issue.

    I'd also like to chime in. I'm running 64 bit Windows Vista and have the exact same issue.

    This is a 'known issue' which is really ridiculous for them to still have at this point. I can't listen to mp3 links in Firefox, because Quicktime shows up with a black bar as well as eats my mouse pointer if I try to click on roughly where the play button should be.

    I've paid for QT7 Pro and am peeved that they've let a bug like this go on this long.

    UP. Same problem. 64bit OS is used a lot, it owuld be nice to have an update from the APPLE team.

    PLEASE make a Quicktimes Version for Vista 64 bit. I can't use my ipod or itunes or anything and it is very frustrating. Is there any work around for this yet??
  • vanetworking Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    When I install it I get this error:

    Error 46: Could not load or find the QuickTime ActiveX control.

    How do I fix this??
  • warrenwheel Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Ahh, I just posted recently about not knowing what the black bar was. I didn't even consider it was because of the 64-bit, but I guess that would explain it. I, to, would like to see a fix for this.
  • graywolfman Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    The only fix I have found is to run the 32 bit browser, or if you have Firefox/the 32 bit still doesn't work you have to set your browser to run in Windows XP SP2 compatibility mode. If you are running Vista x64 and do this, when you watch a video the track bar will finally work, but your computer will change the visual theme to Vista Basic. Aero mode will re-activate once you close the window with the Quicktime video... just a work around, but at least you can use QT at that point :-S

    I see this issue is 2 years old and there's no fix!
    I'm watching lynda.com tutorial discs and cannot control them!

    there must be something in the works to fix it?
    there's threads archived on here from 2007 with the same problem!!!
  • kpurcell Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Just keeping the issue alive. Have no real hope Apple will respond. They have not motivation to do so. They want us to all join their evil empire of overpriced ... whoops. Almost started inciting a riot.
