How to downgrade to QuickTime Pro 6
Authored by: Lankhmart on Jun 09, '05 01:10:35PM

When I installed QuickTime 7.0 in 10.3.9 the installer gave THREE explicit warnings that my version 6 pro key would not be valid. First the readme file (which the installer itself displays) clearly stated that QT 7 requires a new pro key; next a dialog box appeared indicating that my current pro key would be invalidated if I continued, which I had to acknowledge with an "OK"; finally, just before the real installation began, there was an "are you sure?" message that I had to answer yes to before my QT 6 pro installation was replaced. From my perspective, not only was there warning given and permission asked, the point was absolutely driven into the ground.

As for Tiger and 7.0.1, I cannot say as I had already purchased a QT 7 pro license by the time I moved to 10.4.

How to downgrade to QuickTime Pro 6
Authored by: gfisch on Jun 10, '05 04:16:52AM

I have upgraded to QT Pro 7 (on Tiger) but encounter a complete crash of QuickTime when I use a certain codec.

I have a licence of Sorenson Video Pro 3
Now - when I select the "Watermark" tab in "Options" QuickTime CRASHES repeatedly. This happens on my G5 2x2 and on my PB 12. I reported this to Apple and to Sorenson but no feedback at all.

This is pretty annoying because it means I have to start-up from my Tiger backup to encode videos with watermarks (what I always do).

This might be an esotheric problem that does not interest many but I must say the Sorenson support really sucks! They did not reply to any of my three bug reports at all.

Any ideas or tips. Who is to contact to get this fixed? It might be a Sorenson codec problem or a QuickTime flaw.

You may have been warned during your install, but during my upgrade from Panther to Tiger, there were no such active warnings displayed about nuking my QTime 6 Pro key.
