Create a free 'light' QuickTime Pro Player Apps
To get two free QuickTime apps with several functions missing from the standard OS X player, including copy, cut, paste, trim, export, etc., first visit the QTKitImport page on Apple's Developer site. Download and mount the file QTKitImport.dmg. You will then find a program called QTKitPlayer.app in the build folder. This app worked well for me.

For another app with more capabilities (but that didn't work as well for me), first install Xcode 2.1 -- if you need help with this, you can use this walkthrough that Rob created for his Macworld weblog.

Then grab and mount the QuickTime 7.01 Software Development Kit [11.9MB download]. After downloading, install the package. Navigate to /Developer -> Examples -> QuickTime -> QTKit -> QTKitPlayer, where you will then find the file named QTKitPlayer.xcode. Double-click on it, opening it in Xcode. Select the 'Upgrade a copy' option. A QTKitPlayer window should open. Click the 'Build' button on the toolbar. You will then find the compiled app here when it's done: /Developer -> Examples -> QuickTime -> QTKit -> QTKitPlayer -> build -> Development.

The QuickTime Kit Programming Guide is a somewhat outdated tutorial on creating and adding features to these apps. Because it is outdated, you cannot successfully create these apps from scratch using the tutorial alone. But by examining the source files downloaded above, you might be able to figure out what is missing from the tutorial, and so be able to add additional features like exporting other file formats, etc.

You might also like to try QuickTime Ameteur, created by someone who was annoyed at having to pay for software again that he'd already bought on the previous version of the OS.

Also be sure to check out BitPlayer which does a lot of the QTKit stuff and has playlists. Much eaiser than paying for QTPro or compiling stuff.

here's another cool app that adds even more to the qtkit: QTAudioExtractionPanel.

download it at: http://developer.apple.com/samplecode/QTAudioExtractionPanel/QTAudioExtractionPanel.dmg

i think it adds a lot... the following description i copied from the webpage (http://developer.apple.com/samplecode/QTAudioExtractionPanel/QTAudioExtractionPanel.html).

Description

QTAudioExtractionPanel adds a specialized Audio Extraction panel to the QTKitPlayer sample application. This panel provides access to some of the advanced audio capabilities introduced in QuickTime 7, including:

* multi-channel audio tracks

* spatially-labeled audio channels

* movie audio mixing using spatial characteristics

* audio device channel layout display (and editing, through Audio/MIDI Setup)

* movie and track level property listeners and accessors

* movie audio extraction configuration, preview, and export

* multi-threaded audio preview and export
