I used to have Quicktime Pro. Can anyone tell me where it went since installing 10.6?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6)

    Open the QuickTime Player 7 application in the Utilities folder to access it.

    The newest version that comes with 10.6 is Quicktime 10.0. Why would apple want me to download 7.0 again?

    Because QT 7 has functionality that QuickTime X does not. If you need it, you'll want QT 7. If you don't, you might not.

    Did you clean install or upgrade? If you upgraded, then QT pro would be under the Utilities folder. If you clean installed, then you can select QT 7 as a custom option during the install process, then enter your pro key.

    So should 10.6 users that have Qt Pro, have both QT versions?

    Yes, quicktime 10 will appear in your applications folder and your old quicktime pro will appear in your utilities folder.

    Yes. If you have QuickTime Pro, the old version of the QuickTime Player is installed by default. Otherwise, it's an optional installation.

    Thanks for the tips. I must tell you though I cannot find it in the Utilities folder. Any idea how I go around finding it?

    If you don't have QT 7 in your Utilities folder, then insert your Snow Leopard install disk, when it opens double click "Optional Installs" then double click the "Optional Installs.mpkg" file. This starts an installer. As you proceed through the installer and get to the "Installation Type" section you will notice that "QuickTime 7" is one of the optional packages you can install.

    All of these were options that would have appeared in your initial Snow Leopard install if you had selected the "Customize..." button.

    I was rather dismayed that I couldn't use the features that were with QuickTime 7.6.3 so I got brave and took it out of the utilities folder where it was placed when I installed Snow Leopard. I then went into my Time Machine Backups, went to my computers saved library in the SYSTEM FOLDER copied ALL of the components, then pasted them into my HOME library in the new version of installed Leopard Files. When I open up QuickTime 7, I now have access to the two preference areas in the finder, one that now shows my previous registration code, and the other general app preferences. I was also able to convert files from one format to another like before. I haven't used this extensively, so I can't vouch that I might fall prey to some form of future conflict. But, h

    Thanks for answering this question for me. I attempted to show a presentation to colleagues using the new Quicktime. While the new program is great it doesn't have the same functionality I was used to in terms of shortcuts. I did find QTPro in the Utilities folder just as you said. I think I'll have a chance to get most of the new stuff down soon. I haven't had a chance to play with it that much, either, since I just updated my Final Cut Studio 2 to 3 yesterday. Again though, thanks for saving me another potentially nagging holiday headache.

    After installing Snow Leopard, I missed having QuickTime Pro versus QuickTime X automatically open my various video files, so I moved QuickTime 7.6.3 from the utilities folder to the applications folder, reset it as the default application to open my media, reinstalled it in the dock, and removed QuickTime X from the dock.

    Seems like everything is back to normal.

    It should have worked if you did the same operations, but left it in the Utilities folder. If you move it, Software Update my not be able to find it.
