    QuickTime is pretty heavily embedded in the OS and is extremely difficult to downgrade. Sometimes if there's a troubled update Apple will release a specialised downgrade 'patch' but this isn't very common and as far as I know, unavailable for QuickTime 7.1.3. :eek:

    The easiest way to downgrade QuickTime is to reinstall the OS from scratch, however this isn't really very practical and if your machine already came with 7.1.3 then it won't do any good anyway. Perhaps there's a better solution to your problem. What exactly is wrong with 7.1.3? :)

    There is a Quicktime reinstaller which will revert 7.1.3 to 7.0.1, which you can then upgrade back to 7.1.2 (I actually did this after I got rid of iTunes 7) but there's a catch - you have a Macbook.

    It seems Intel-based Macs can't swallow Quicktime 7.0.1, so it looks like the only way is to reinstall the OS and you will be back to whatever QT version shipped with your machine.
