IIRC, you can compile 9.11 with both Plaum's (or HW's) Quicktime and 
Apple's Quicktime... I changed something in 9.11 so that you can do it. If 
there is a priority problem for the file associations, you can fix that by 
changing the order of the sections in the ./configure file. You can use 
both modules at once regardless of file associations, but then you cannot 
use [#record] as it is now, because you need to say «open quicktimehw $1» 
to force using that file-writer.

And yes, what I said about «open quicktimeapple $1» (in the previous mail) 
would only work if [#io.quicktimeapple] could write files at all.

But you don't need to use [#record], you can use [#out] directly and 
that's what I use all of the time. [#record] is only a shortcut for 
when you want to use [savepanel].
