    Alright, every once in awhile the Apple Update Software program comes up asking to update, it says Quicktime + Itunes.

    I don't want iTunes, but thats the only thing it will let me download.

    How do I update Quicktime without iTunes, or if its really just wanting to update iTunes, why is it, I don't have iTunes installed.

    And when I go in Quicktime, and hit, Update Existing Software I get this error

    *edit

    actually the only reason I have it install is cause I thought for videos to work in Firefox, firefox needs it installed. Is this correct?

    you only need quicktime if you want to watch quicktime videos.

    Easiest way to update just quicktime is to redownload it from apple.

    If there is a .mov file on the internet, embedded or what not, do I need Quicktime installed on the computer.

    Cause VLC Player plays those files.

    yes you do. I keep telling you though that there are better players out there on windows than VLC :)
