    Hi all,
    I have an i7 and it came with Quicktime X player. What I was reading is that if I want to convert avi files to mov, I would need to have quicktime pro7.

    Should I uninstall Quicktime X, then install quicktime 7 in order to get quicktime pro (make a purchase)? Quicktime X seems like an upgrade to QT7 so I am hesitant in doing so. Is there anything out there that would allow my QTX to convert files? (like QTX pro??)

    Any help appreciated.

    If you don't mind using a better software than QT, use MPEG Streamclip is highly advised to be used for that endeavour of yours.

    www.square5.com - it's spy- and other malware free btw.

    Thanks. I will give that a shot.

    btw, I just found that qtx doesn't require any pro in order to convert files. I just need open the avi file, click on "save as" and that's it.

    Wish I can do a batch convert from QTX....
