    quicktime 7.2 problems
    Hi there,

    I've recently updated from quicktime 7.1.6 to 7.2, and have been reading there have been problems with 7.2 and intel machines. I am web designing and need my quicktime to work properly. I need to reinstall 7.1.6, but my mac won't let me whilst it detects the newer 7.2. Does anyone know how i can clear 7.2 to re-install 7.1.6?

    Many Thanks

    What exactly have you heard/read about problems with 7.2? I have had no problems with it at all on any of my Macs (all 3 intel machines). To answer your question, you would need to first have a 7.1.6 install file, then after uninstalling 7.2, install the 7.16. Also remember that Quicktime works together with iTunes, so be careful.

    thanks for that. The problem i've been having is loss of visuals on firefox and netscape browsers. I can here sound, but no pictures. I have another macbook, exact same spec but with 7.1.6 and the files play fine. I have a 7.1.6 install, but How do i uninstall 7.2. the quicktime720.pkg i have doesn't have an uninstall option

    Typically to uninstall a program in OS X you simply drag it to the trash. In this case, go to your applications folder and look for the quicktime icon and go from there. I have not tried this with quicktime however.

    But you must also trash some plist files and other preferences I think...not sure which ones though.

    hi,

    yes trashed the application, but it won't let me install 7.1.6, cos it can still detect 7.2. i then tried appdelete to get rid of all relative files, but still won't let me install 7.1.6.......

    i've just reinstalled 7.2 cos 7.1.6 wouldn't, and now all the quicktime problems have dissappered. maybe it was just dodgy preferences. **** i hate computers!

    Does anyone know how to completely clear Quicktime?

    Reinstalling 7.2 hasn't solve my issues and I want 7.1.6 back.

    This is really giving me the irates!!

    I thought I left these kinds of issues back with Windows.
