I'm out of my regular territory here, but since I just (clean) reinstalled 10.6.8 I may have an insight...
Depending on what you've done, you've either got QuickTime 7 and 10, or just one of them; you may be missing the version you need.
I've got /Applications/Utilities/QuickTime Player 7.app, and I remember not opting for v 10.
Take a look and let us know what you've got.
Edit: If I remember correctly, 10 s/b in /Apps and 7 s/b in /Apps/Utils.
