    Hi.

    I have bought a Quicktime Pro license and thought that I could use it in the version of Quicktime which comes with the computer but I see no registration menu.

    I've searched and found out that Apple introduced a new version of Quicktime - a 10th version but it basically has less feautres than the 7th version. So I will have to install Quicktime 7 to get my pro license working and get the features, right?
    But when trying to install Quicktime 7 I get an error, that a newer version - Quicktime X - is installed on the machine.

    How can I get access to the pro features then?

    The Quicktime Pro licence is for QT7. Snow Leopard comes with QuickTime X - You can use your Leopard installation discs to install QT 7, then register the Pro licence. It's possible.

    For those wondering about why there is a difference - http://www.roughlydrafted.com/2009/09/01/inside-mac-os-x-snow-leopard-quicktime-x/

    For now - QT7 at the very least offers more options for Save As (exporting in different formats) on files.

    Okay. Sounds great. But do you know, if I will be able to have both verisons installed?
    Actually I like QTX for playing movies but as you said, QT7 offers more export options - and that's actually exactly what I need at the moment.

    Yes, you can have both versions installed at the same time.
