    Hello everyone.
    This is really bad of apple to do this.
    I have a JVC HD camcorder that records in MPEG2 TOD files. It's always worked fine on the mac until the new Quicktime players have come out.
    I have been told to remove the 7.5 and reinstall 7.3
    Well I cant install 7.3 because the computer says there is a newer version of quicktime on the computer. I then deleted all the old quicktime files I could find and tried to reinstall 7.3. Same thing, a newer version of Quicktime player was noted on the mac.
    Can anyone help. I really dont think I should be throwing out a $2500 camera for this computer.
    Thanks for any help.

    You can't just undo an update by ripping out random files, quicktime is implemented in low level OS libraries the player is just a front end.

    If you have Time Machine you can roll back to a point before the update or if not you can do an archive and install then run all the other updates besides quicktime.

    after you installed 7.5, did you try uninstalling and re-installing the MPEG2 TOD codecs from JVC?

    Which JVC do you have? if it's an everio, there's some talk of updated components here. That thread also mentions that there's some discussion of it in Apple's quicktime forums.

    This fixed my issue today!

    Go and download this free stuff. It's time consuming, but at least it will work for now. My main camera is a Sony PMW-EX1 and there is not any issue with the mac on her. It's made more for mac than a PC. All the users for PC have a bitch of a time with this unit.
    Go to this link and try to down load then convert it to what ever setting you wish as long as you have Quicktime Pro.

    Hey, you can downgrade your Quicktime installation using a handy little application called "Pacifist". You can download a trial version here http://www.charlessoft.com/. Make sure that you have the right version of QT for your OS - there are different versions for Tiger, Leopard and so forth. Hope this helps...
