Do I need Apple QuickTime?
146 Posts

Tracker will open some image types, such as gif and animated gif, without having Apple QuickTime installed.  QucikTime is needed to analyze video clips.

Hi Wolfgang I got some problems with Tracker on my Mac(Snow Leopard), I cant open .mov files, but I can open images. I reinstalled QuickTime, but nothing changed.

Here's the fix for Snow Leopard:

1. Open Java Preferences in the Applications/Utilities directory.
2. In the General tab, drag 32 bit Java to the top position (ie, above 64 bit Java) in both the Applets and Applications panes.
