    I really like the Firefox idea. I'll do that but maaaaannnn...how many browsers should I really need! Maybe I'll need 8GB RAM by the time this is over!!!

    Count me among those who created an apple account just to bump this issue.

    The compatability workaround, though undesirable, indeed works for FF, but FF is not my preferred browser.

    When I try to run Chrome in compatability mode, the app will not even open.

    Looking for a fix to the black bar controls like everyone else here.

    Please, apple?

    I have just run into this problem after upgrading to a 64 win7. I am quite disgusted at the lack of attention this bug has received, and will be doing my best to avoid apple software wherever possible.

    Just makes apple look bad. Certainly not going to make me want to use quicktime for anything.

    I also just upgraded to Win 7 64 bit and have this problem. Hope that there is a fix soon.

    this problem has being around for years since I started using XP 64 like 4 years ago.

    Bottom line for now--there is no 64-bit QuickTime plugin for Windows. However, I was able to get the latest QuickTime plugin to work properly in all* of the 32-bit browsers running on 64-bit Windows 7 by setting them to run in Vista SP2 compatibility mode by editing the system registry and by creating some custom JavaScript functions. (* Safari 4.04, Firefox 3.5.7, Chrome 4.0.2..., Internet Explorer 8.0.76... and Opera 10.10.)

    To enable all the 32 bit browsers (except Chrome) to run in Vista SP2 compatibility mode on 64 bit Windows 7 for *All Users*, edit the Windows System Registry as follows:

    1. Open Regedit.

    2. Navigate to the following registry key:

    HKEYLOCALMACHINE\
    SOFTWARE\
    Microsoft\
    Windows NT\
    CurrentVersion\
    AppCompatFlags\
    Layers

    3. Add the following String (REG_SZ) name/data values to the Layers key:

    Value Name: C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
    Value Data: VISTASP2

    Value Name: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe
    Value Data: VISTASP2

    Value Name: C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\opera.exe
    Value Data: VISTASP2

    Value Name: C:\Program Files (x86)\Safari\Safari.exe
    Value Data: VISTASP2

    To enable 32 bit Chrome to run in Vista SP2 compatibility mode on 64 bit Windows 7 for the *Current User*, edit the Windows System Registry as follows:

    1. Open Regedit.

    2. Navigate to the following registry key:

    HKEYCURRENTUSER\
    Software\
    Microsoft\
    Windows NT\
    CurrentVersion\
    AppCompatFlags\
    Layers

    3. Add the following String (REG_SZ) name/data values to the Layers key:

    Value Name: C:\Users\\[User]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe
    Value Data: VISTASP2

    NOTE: replace "\[User\]" with your Windows Username in the Value Name above.

    Then, see the following web page:

    http://www.kellyco.com/maltese/videos.shtml

    Note: the above web page actually uses the HTML5 "video" element with a nested "object" element with a nested "embed" element. Safari, Firefox and Chrome will use the HTML5 "video" element, Internet Explorer uses the "object" element and Opera uses the "embed" element. Also note that Safari, Firefox and Chrome could use the "object" element (if there were no "video" element present), but I thought it best to go with the latest/greatest standards available.

    The page uses the following scripts, which you are welcome to download and use/modify if you want:

    http://www.kellyco.com/kscripts/playelemvideo.js
    http://www.kellyco.com/kscripts/ac_quicktime.js
    http://www.kellyco.com/kscripts/qtp_library.js
    http://www.kellyco.com/kscripts/playqtplugin.js

    and the following style sheet:

    http://www.kellyco.com/styles/qtp_library.css

    Hope this helps somebody...

    Hello,

    We encounter the same problem on a Windows 7 64 bit with the latest version of Quictime. The plugins do not work with IE or Firefox. On the other hand, the Quicktime reader does not read the MOV files stored locally on disk. The same installation works well on Windows 7 32 bit.

    we expect *a true 64-bit version of Quicktime* or a good idea to fix this issue.

    Thank you.
  • dkmarten Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    It is pretty lame that Apple can invest millions of dollars for iPad development but cannot get Quicktime to work properly as an embedded player in a web browser. I guess I will just remove it and iTunes and use Windows Media Player. WMP works in both the 32 and 64 Bit versions of IE 8 on Windows 7 64-Bit Pro.
  • armstrong56 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Dude, Your fix works for people with ipod problems. I have a 64 bit Vista system. Ever since my ipod crashed I've been hopeless. I haven't been able to restore my ipod. I'm not computer illiterate, but I'm not real computer savy either. I downloaded the 64 bit ipod software after deleting everything to do with apple in my computer. After downloading another copy of itunes(64) Your fix worked. The Quick time problem is probably still there but I use Window's media player for video. It's kinda difficult to navigate your instructions but you did a good job. For other people's info, don't delete what's there just add to the things this guy says to add to in Regedit. My ipod plays reasonably well now. All of the original features are not there,but it doesn't give me error messages. Whoever you are THANK YOU.

    Just Bumping this once again. Although the 32 bit compatibility is a workaround, 64bit is here and here to stay. Even Apple's own OS is 64bit. When can we expect an updated, fully supported, 64bit version?
  • varjak paw Level 10 Level 10 (169,830 points)
    You're bumping this thread to no purpose since no one here can give you any information. We're all just your fellow users here and have no idea when, or indeed if, Apple will release a full 64-bit version of QuickTime. We'll all just have to wait and see.
  • albertm Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Ok, sorry about that then. I was under the impression that Apple techs might read these forums and respond when they have some info.

    I'll just have to assume for now that it will get here eventually. We just hoped we would have it in time for our Win7 64bit rollout.
  • varjak paw Level 10 Level 10 (169,830 points)
    I was under the impression that Apple techs might read these forums and respond when they have some info.

    No, they don't. Apple personnel do sometimes participate here, but with the exception of the Discussions Hosts, only on their own time as private individuals, and Apple employees cannot and will not ever discuss an unannounced Apple product or update. So asking for information about any future Apple product in these forums will yield nothing but speculation and guesswork.

    Again, we'll just have to wait and see what the future brings.
  • mooksterct Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Amazingly, this appears to be fixed with the latest iTunes 9.1/QuickTime 7.6.6 player updates. I never bothered with any of the 'workarounds' found in various forums/support boards, I just lived with it. After this update yesterday, the progress bar/volume/etc controls are finally present in my 64-bit Win7.
  • albertm Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I've just confirmed this is now working for me as well on a few files that I tested. I hope this is it!
