One way to reinstall just QuickTime Player Apps
I discovered that there was a problem with my QuickTime Player application in the Applications folder in Leopard. I'm not sure how the corruption occurred, all I knew was that I needed to reinstall it. I trashed the ailing application bundle and ran the QuickTime 7.6 installation that I had saved, but QuickTime Player wasn't reinstalled, hence began my research for the solution disclosed in this hint.

Apple still makes available the 7.4.1 installer for QuickTime, which includes the application bundle for QuickTime player. However, the installer didn't allow installation of the former version of QuickTime over the already-installed 7.6 version.

So I used the free Unpkg to extract the application bundle from the 7.4.1 installer, placed it in the Applications folder, then again executed the installation of the 7.6 update. Now Get Info reports that I have QuickTime Player 7.6.
