No love for Snow Leopard and QT 7's new home in the Utilities folder.

Looks as if for the present time those of us on snow leopard will miss out on the QT 7 Pro (7.6.4) update until apple pulls the finger out.

As part of iTunes 9.0 requires QT 7.6.4 to work

• Support for HE-AAC requires QuickTime 7.6.4 and Mac OS X version 10.5 or later

I have posted at apple discussions asking why isn't there a version for SL users of QT 7 Pro 7.6.4

So far not much has been said

It looks so far as we are being left out in the cold with this update.

What is the QuickTime 7 version that ships with Snow Leopard?

If iTunes 9 requires today's version of QuickTime 7, then I think you'll see a "correction" of some sort tonight for our SL using friends.

Got 7.6.4 working on Snow Leopard

I'm currently on SL 10.6.1 and tried to download and install QT 7.6.4 (for Leopard) from this link: http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/.

I had also been a QT Pro user under Leopard so that "QuickTime Player 7" (7.6.2) still remains on my SL install but under Utilities rather than Applications. I was greeted with a warning: "QuickTime can't be installed on this disk. This version of QuickTime 7 can't be installed on this disk because QuickTime X is already present. Please use Software Update to install the appropriate version of QuickTime for your Mac."

Also interesting, I tried to install QT 7.6.4 on a volume containing a clone of my Leopard install and was greeted with: "QuickTime can't be installed on this disk. QuickTime can only be installed on the currently booted volume. To install QuickTime on a different volume, change your Startup Disk to that volume and restart."

So, I was able to successfully install 7.6.4 on my Leopard volume. I moved the 7.6.2 version out of the SL Applications/Utilities folder elsewhere. I copied the 7.6.4 Leopard version to my SL/App/Utilities folder and renamed it from "QuickTime Player" to "QuickTime Player 7" to follow the convention that Apple used.

Note that OS X names the current version of QT in your App folder as "QuickTime Player" whether that's 7.6.4 in Leopard or QTX in SL.

With 7.6.4 now in my Utilities folder it launches and functions exactly as it did on my Leopard install. So, eureka!

Cheers

The player app isnt the important part of QuickTime, you want the frameworks.
