    Hi guys, I am running Lion on my Macbook Pro and wanted to know about Quicktime Pro. As far as I can see the latest quicktime pro is Version 7. I have the free player that you get with Lion that is Version 10.1.

    Is the older 7 Pro better than the free 10.1 or is the 10.1 the best?

    Cheers.

    Personally, I find the old Quicktime Pro (ver 7.6.6) much more useful and versatile than ver 10.1. Particularly where cutting pasting and joining clips is concerned.

    So should I go back to the older Pro or just keep what I've got? What runs better with Lion?

    Quicktime 7 pro works perfectly fine on Lion. I actually replaced most video file associations to open with Quicktime 7 using RCDefaultApp. It's a powerful system preference pane that lets you manage the default applications of any file type.

    But should I replace the free QuickTime X version with QuickTime pro 7 or keep X?

    You can keep both. QuickTime X is called "QuickTime Player" and the older version will be named "QuickTime Player 7" so there won't be a naming conflict.

    If you have a Pro key, QTP7 is still much more versatile when it comes to trimming, recording, and editing video properties. You also get a 'proper' export dialog box.

    Replacement for Quicktime 7 Pro

    Hi, I'm reviving this thread because, with the latest Lion update (10.7.4), quicktime 7 no longer loops any video (The Loop function is disabled and greyed out). This function is vital for me, so I'm working with Quicktime X.

    The problem is that Quicktime X still lacks a lot of Quicktime 7's features, so I'm looking for another application that can really replace Quicktime 7 on the mac. Is there any?? :confused:

    Thanks!

    Correct. Apple replaces QuickTime 7 APIs in Mountain Lion with a new API.

    Both versions are supported:

    ...and QT7 runs good on 10.7.x.
