Problems with Quicktime and Win 7?

I have webpages with quicktime movies that I can view on XP and Vista machines, but on my new Dell with Windows 7. I see the QT image but where the controller bar is supposed to be is just a balack bar.

Therefore I can't play the movies.

I tried everything
updated quicktime... adobe.. windows..

nothing solves the problem

this is true in both IE and Safari browers running on Win 7

Any Ideas?


Thanks for the advice. I did try what you suggested and I still have the problem. I should mention that QT's play fine on my system it's only viewing in a browser that there's a problem.

yeah. i tried all that. I think it may be a problem with win 7 64 bit

You don't need tofull blown edition of QuickTime.

Just download a codec package such as K-Lite Mega pack.

Quicktime and Adobe are bloatware.

I';d rcommend you downloadinf Foxit reader for your pdf files it here:
Foxit Reader - Reviews and free Foxit Reader downloads at

I suggest you uninstall them using Revo Uninstaller

then get a good media player like VLC media player or KMPlayer

I'm a graphic designer and video editor so I use all Adobe software including flash and dreamweaver to post my movies.
Quciktime is the standard for video editing

like I said it works fine on XP and Vista. Some Win 7 64bit glitch that i hope they figure out soon.

Flash Player support on 64-bit operating systems


Adobe Flash Player is not supported for playback in a 64-bit browser. However, you can run Flash Player in a 32-bit browser running on a 64-bit operating system.

Adobe is working on Flash Player support for 64-bit platforms as part of our ongoing commitment to the cross-platform compatibility of Flash Player. We expect to provide native support for 64-bit platforms in an upcoming release of Flash Player following the release of Flash Player 10.1.
Note: To participate in pre-release testing of 64-bit Flash Players see Adobe Labs.


To use Flash Player to view Flash content on a 64-bit operating system, you must run a 32-bit browser. For details on setting this up for Windows see Microsoft Help & Support.

For details on using Flash Player on Mac OS X 10.6 on 64-bit machines, see:
Flash Player 10 and Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)

GPU mode support on Macintosh OS X 10.6
