I have a QuickTime Pro 7 activation key. However, I seem to have lost Pro functionality when I upgraded to higher versions of QuickTime, to which there seems to be no Pro functionality. How do I do to restore Pro functionality?

    Quicktime X does not have the Pro functionality. It was released with that intended as an add-on in a later release. This is in part due to them completely altering the structure of the application. It's now multithreaded and uses helper applications for various transcoding steps.

     

    The solution is to download Quicktime 7 from Apple and use that for the Pro functions: http://support.apple.com/downloads/#quicktime

    There are two versions of QuickTime (10 and 7.6.6) that work with Snow Leopard. Only 7.6.6 can be upgraded to Pro.

    7.6.6 is now found in the Applications/Utilities folder.

    A bit more to think about:

     

    Quicktime X is more capable than Quicktime 7 of smoothly playing high definition video files that use modern, CPU-intensive codecs.

     

    You can install both player versions on Snow Leopard systems (but not just the Quicktime 7 player/editor because it requires components of Quicktime X to function).

     

    Thus, you can have the best features of both by using Quicktime 7 for editing & Quicktime X for playback.

    Thank you. Yes, indeed I found it in my Application>Utlities folder, also properly registered, with my activation key.
