This just looks like a gamma interpretation difference. You can change how Quicktime interprets gamma in the preferences area of Quicktime. I believe there's a check box to enable a different gamma level, tied to Final Cut Studio if I remember right. (2.2 vs 1.8). Check and your problem should be solved.

Ultimately, Quicktime 7 (and X) is a bad way to proof check your work for color accuracy. It is a notoriously poor (and well documented) app for handling color. It's best to have an outboard monitor being fed by some sort of SDI or HDMI monitoring card (Blackmagic Intensity Pro or Decklink card).
