    If you've been using TIme Machine to back up your system, you should be able to just restore QuickTime Player X from the backup. Otherwise, you'll either need to copy QuickTime Player X from another computer running the same version of OS X, reinstall OS X, or extract QuickTime Player X from the Mac OS X install disk using CharlesSoft's Pacifist.


    If, however, you deleted other files pertaining to QuickTime other than just the Player application, reinstalling OS X will probably be your only route to recovery.


    Once restored, if you then need to install QuickTime Player 7, see:

    How would one do this if the system software was a  downloaded online from Apple and I do not have an install disk?

    Using Pacifist, the current version of which can extract the files from the Recovery Partition/Internet Recovery facility provided by Lion. Or by reinstalling Lion.
