Chapter 1. QuickTime Basics > Checking for the Pro Edition

Checking for the Pro Edition

If you know that you have QuickTime 5, you’ll want to determine whether you have the Standard edition (in which case you’ll need to upgrade) or the Pro edition.

To see whether you have QuickTime Pro:

1.
If it’s not already open, open the QuickTime Settings control panel (Mac OS 9 and Windows) or the QuickTime Pane (Mac OS X, in System Preferences).

2.
(Mac OS 9 and Windows) From the pop-up menu (Figure 1.5), choose Registration to open the Registration panel.

Figure 1.5. (Mac OS 9 or Windows) Choose Registration in the QuickTime Settings control panel.


(Mac OS X) Click the Registration button (Figure 1.6) to open the Registration dialog box.

Figure 1.6. (Mac OS X) Click the Registration button in the QuickTime pane.


3.
Determine which edition you have:

  • If the line labeled QuickTime Key (Mac OS 9 and Windows) or QuickTime (Mac OS X) reads “5.0 Pro Player Edition” (Figure 1.7), you have the Pro edition.

    Figure 1.7. The Registration panel or dialog box looks similar to this figure when you have QuickTime 5 Pro.


    If the line reads “Standard Edition” (Figure 1.8), you don’t have the Pro edition. You need to get a QuickTime Pro registration code.

    Figure 1.8. The Registration panel or dialog box looks similar to this figure when you have the Standard edition of QuickTime.


  • If the line reads “3.0/4.0 Pro Player Edition” you don’t have a Pro registration code that works with QuickTime 5. You need to get a new registration code.

    We tell you how to get a registration code in “Upgrading to QuickTime 5 Pro” later in this chapter.
