In Leopard there was WindowShade X and Afloat - both great tools. I dearly miss the feature to keep certain windows on top of everthing.

If anybody knows a workaround please tell me.

But … I don’t want to set my whole System Preferences in 32bit mode. … don’t want to use SIMBLE since I need the feature also on 64bit apps.

I still use Afloat - seems to work fine...

I'm using the newest SIMBL that works on Snow Leopard.

Thank you very much for the quick solution! – pattulus Sep 22 '09 at 10:06

The Plugsuit prefpane included with Afloat is buggy - and will keep asking for you to authenticate. However by downloading the latest Snow-Leopard compatible SIMBL from here, and removing PlugSuit from ~/Library/PreferencePanes, Afloat seems to work fine. Hooray - Quicktime movies Always On Top!

Link to a more detailed "how to" blogpost, seems to work perfectly on Safari (which is a 64-bit application on snow leopard): always on top in snow leopard
