After upgrading to Lion, Quicktime always re-opens all of the movies I've opened in previous sessions.
That is what it is supposed to do if you leave player windows open when quitting the QT Player app. Remember, one of the new features of Lion is the "remembering" of every open window in an application, their locations, etc. so that when an appication is re-opened, it opens with exactly the status as when last closed so you can continue what you were doing at the time you closed the application.iMac, Mac OS X (10.7), 3.4 GHz Quad Core i7, 4 GB 1333 MHz

Is there some way to prevent this stupid prctise? I often open several files, then quit the app rather than closing each individual file. This is counter-productive.

There may or may not be. If there is, I have yet to find it. (I'm still in the "familiarization" stage.) If there isn't, it would make a good enhancement request, especially if it could be turned off/on by application.
I often open several files, then quit the app rather than closing each individual file. This is counter-productive.
I tend to close players after use, so this doesn't really bother me. (On the other hand, I make a lot "what if" saves and am not really fornd of the idea of a new "auto-save" feature confusing me between my project saves and its saves.)
Oh, well... To each his (or her) own.iMac, Mac OS X (10.7), 3.4 GHz Quad Core i7, 4 GB 1333 MHz

Indeed, after a more thorough investigation, I discovered this behavior is the same for all of my aplications, not just Quicktime. I really don't like this because it's counterintuitive to the way I work. Would be OK for some users, I understand, but it would be very nice to have the OPTION of turning this on and off. If Appe cannot do this at some point, I'll back away fro Lion and go back to Snow Leopard. Thanks for info !!!

Jon, if you DO find a way to disable this 'feature', please let us know. It eludes me after quite a bit of looking this morning. I hate the prospect of having to manually close my documents before quitting the application so Lion doesn't re-open them when I launh the application again. Thanks very much.

If you generally like Resume in other apps, but don't want it in QuickTime or other single apps, you can disable them individually via the terminal:
defaults write com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX NSQuitAlwaysKeepsWindows -bool false

Another solution that I found to work - bind the keys so that when you quit with Cmd-Q it'll do what you want. In System Preferences, go to Keyboard, then Keyboard Shortcuts. On the left side, choose Application Shortcuts. Below the right side listing of the listing, click the plus of the +- widget, and start making a new keybinding for Quicktime Player.app.
The name of the first one to add is "Quit and Close All Windows". Get it exact, this one will be bound to Cmd-Q, of course. Since those keys are already taken, though, this won't quite work yet. Add another key binding for "Quit QuickTime Player", and put it on Cmd-Option-Q. Set like this, you can leave QT open across a system restart, but clean up everything by manually Quitting.
