Enter the name and number found in the confirmation email exactly as it appears in the "Registration" tab of the QT Control Panel.
How can you call that "poor design"? It prevents people from "sharing" the information and helps keep the cost of the product down because no one will be willing to share a key with their name on it.Mac mini, iMac G3 400, and a little used PC running Window 2000 server, Mac OS X (10.4.3), 10.3.9 OS 9.2
Currently Being ModeratedDec 15, 2005 9:36 AM (in response to WayneLigon)Today I purchased QuickTime Pro 7 for Mac OS X online. I have placed the correct information into the preferences/registration area and verified inside of the QuickTime 7.0.1 preference registration area.
The Pro features are not visible (as in "nothing happens"); also, I purchased QuickTime MPEG-2 playback for Mac OS X and again I cannot run it, much less locate the downloaded document.
I know my transactions were completed, as I received acknowledgements via e-mail. I also know I have typed this in correctly.
My goal here is to convert some DVD footage (in VOB format) into Quicktime so that I can drop into iMovie.PowerPC G4
Currently Being ModeratedDec 15, 2005 10:02 AM (in response to Beth Torgerson)Beth. After entering the info does the Preference Pane say QuickTime Pro (under your serial)?
If it does then you've got Pro. Open the QuickTime Player and you should notice the word "Pro" has been removed from some menu items.
The MPEG-2 Playback Component is installed in the HD/Library/QuickTime folder.Mac mini, iMac G3 400, and a little used PC running Window 2000 server, Mac OS X (10.4.3), 10.3.9 OS 9.2
Currently Being ModeratedDec 15, 2005 10:37 AM (in response to QuickTimeKirk)Thanks, Kirk.
It does say "Pro" under that frame. The MPEG-2 Playback is nowhere to be found. I'm led to believe it did not happen. Having purchased it, etc. what would you recommend?PowerPC G4
Currently Being ModeratedDec 15, 2005 10:47 AM (in response to Beth Torgerson)Only two places it can be:
HD/Library/QuickTime (installed for all users) or
User/Home/Library/QuickTime (if installed just for Beth).
Not having purchased it I don't know if it comes with an "Installer". It is probably a .pkg file (which uses the built in installer app). A search should find it.Mac mini, iMac G3 400, and a little used PC running Window 2000 server, Mac OS X (10.4.3), 10.3.9 OS 9.2
Currently Being ModeratedDec 18, 2005 1:42 PM (in response to QuickTimeKirk)I am having the same problem. Added the Reg Key and went into QuickTime several times and nothing!
I am about ready to ask for a refund. I wanted to record some of my DVD's and put them on my iPod 60 for travel, what is going on?Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedDec 18, 2005 2:11 PM (in response to CheeseHead)QuickTime Pro doesn't open or convert MPEG-2 files.
Read the FAQ pages before purchasing.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 18, 2005 4:46 PM (in response to CheeseHead)I don't see MPEG-2 format listed in your quote and it isn't mentioned as a QT Pro feature.
Describes the MPEG-2 playback ability of QuickTime.
Does your DVD player allow you to edit or convert your DVD files? Why would you expect QuickTime Pro to edit a playback format?
