    Money Down the Cyber-Toilet

    • Written by from akron

    About an hour after buying Quicktime Pro I flushed $30 down the toilet just to see which felt worse. You can't do the SIMPLEST things with Quicktime. And if you can... you have to be a computer expert or professional editor to figure it out. The "help" section does not answer even the simplest questions. Save your money unless you were one of the developers of Quicktime and you already know how it works and what its limitations are... and don't get me started about the limitations!!! Also... don't expect any refunds after you've flushed your money down this cyber-toilet.

    Great and Terrible

    • Written by from Bloomfield

    I've wanted screen-sharing forever, and this has got terrific screen-sharing recording. However, I cannot edit the files in Final Cut Express HD -- it doesn't recognize the files. If I record a screen-sharing, edit the file in Adobe Premier CS4, I cannot export the file as any format. However, if I take the original unedited files and use Adobe Media Encoder CS4; they convert fine. Hope they provide a fix-up soon. My QT 7 Pro upgrade came when I upgraded to Snow Leopard. So if you get QuickTime 7 Pro, you will get the upgrades forever--as I did from when I got it years ago.

    now honestly

    • Written by from forest grove

    qt pro is an excellent product if you know how to use it. it was extremely confusing at first, but so are alot of other programs apple throws at us.
    now, even if it is terrible for you, it's 30 freaking dollars, i mean please. don't give a terrible review for this thing until you know how to use it...
    that's pretty much all, i love it. don't pay attention to the other reviews, it's a great product

    Too apple-centric-->try this app instead

    • Written by from Scappoose

    Short and sweet, the Apple Mac would be unusable for me if I hadn't stumbled onto some Freeware called Mpeg Streamclip. Highly recommended, saves the day, fixes timecode breaks, reads entire DVD style files, and knits them together. Otherwise, the Mac system suffers from an extraordinary disconnect from the "real world" and all the digital codecs out there.
    That said, the QT engine is useful for putting chapter markers into .mov files, and Handbrake does this for you on the fly. Another save the day application to make up for Apple's inattention to user interface and completeness of Quicktime.
    APPLE FOLKS:
    Sadly, I'm seeing a lot of people who, like me, are disgruntled Q-Time users. I've had many, many problems/frustrations with conversions (speed, portability), file repair, and compatiability for file formats, either not recognizing mpegs that other apps recognized easily, or converting ones they could not recognize. The rate of the coversion is also quite slow (agonizing?), and yet does not seem to give improved quality as a trade-off.
    Much attention needs to be given to this application to bring it up to a truly usable level of quality.

    Stunningly Ridiculous!

    • Written by from Aquebogue

    Apple needs to include all the Quicktime 7 features BACK into Quicktime 10. How dumb is this? Even the Apple Tech guys I spoke to on the phone don't get why they did this. The Lion version is missing WAY TOO MANY FEATURES. You can actually run both versions in Lion (or still have 7.6.6 to use instead of version 10). What a mess. C'mon Apple. This is not good. Steve would not be happy with this snafu.

    Why?

    • Written by from Parkerville

    Why create a product that doesn't keep up with what is happening in the real world? It doesn't cope with the new video formats such as .mod and the mpeg2 plug-in that you have to buy, doesn't cope with AC3 sound...so why? I cannot recommend this product.

    Video Formats

    • Written by from Lewisburg

    Quicktime is a fine product. It's easy to use, easy to set up, and most of the time just plain works. Awesome! But, the bad news is... quicktime will not play all the videos out there on the internet. Get your game together guys, i want to be able to watch anything i want, not just a handfull of proprietary formats.

    immediately regret purchase

    • Written by from Bend

    Software works like advertised, easy to update. Bought mostly for converting video to ipod format, this was really all I have tested out so far being the sole reason for my purchase. I ran into issues with apple's over-protected rights block. I kept getting the error message for "insufficient right can not convert video". The weird thing is this is off my home sony camcorder. So, if i don't own the rights to the video not sure who I am really suppose to ask for permission. Any way, Apple doesn't offer refunds on this so I just thought i would vent my frustration and headaches. Hope this helps in your decision one way or another.

    P.S. I was able to find an actual solution to my converting problems at lower cost and even free. Guess my loyalty to apple software just bit me in the bumm this time. Not sure if i can list website on here without this being deleted, but i just google'd "convert video to ipod format".

    Decent, better than QT 10

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I use QuickTime 7 a lot when I listen to the podcasts from my graduate courses. I recently upgraded to Snow Leopard, and what a mess QuickTime 10 is! I reverted back to QuickTime 7. I use the A/V control heavily and the newer version took it away!

    Stupid Mistake...

    • Written by from Miami

    Well after looking over the reviews I purchased it anyhow. I wanted to try it out and was hoping that it would provide quality 3gp file transfers (portable PDA movies). It turned out to be very poor quality on both my Mac and PDA. I spent a few hours digging online and with the manual trying to convert short, descent quality movies. Yes, it can be done, but not watchable...what a disapointment! The features found really are not worth upgrading for...trust the reviews...trust me and do a web search for a better software program that has better value or just stick with the QuickTime Basic...unless of course you want to shell out $30 every 6 months or so just to keep the software updated when a new version comes out. If you want to get a refund...well good luck with that too...do a little exploring on the online Support and Store websites before making the same mistake that many of us have made.

    Upgrading to QT10 did not delete QT7 Pro

    • Written by from Plano

    QT7 Pro is great. If you upgraded to QT10 and think it is gone from your system, just check the Utilities folder within your Applications folder. QuickTime 7 is still there and still very usable.

    Enjoy!

    ipod audio

    • Written by from pittsburgh

    Quicktime is an alright buy depending on who you are and what you are going to do with it. if you want to export movie files out of quicktime pro you won't get sound with them unless they are demuxed files. if they are muxed you'll have to find a 3rd party software to do so, most of the time they are free. you can find out if it is muxed of demuxed if you click on the file and "get info." apple should tell people this. hope this helps some people!

    Only Need One Trick Pony

    • Written by from Soldotna

    Final Cut and iMovie do all my editing. But for coding & embedding video clips on my website pages, QT Pro is 100x better than my Adobe Flash CS4. By selecting "Export for Web" QT Pro compresses and encodes the .mov file down to an incredibly small file (image 852x480) with nearly zero observable loss, even for HD and is much smaller file than the Flash version with same quality. But the most valuable feature is when this "Export" feature is selected, the program creates a new folder complete with the associated files and a sample Readme.html file that contains ALL the html code for inserting on your web page to play video clips ON the page without running Player externally for a standalone movie. For me, it paid for itself the first time I needed to create the code to embed the first video.

    QuickTime Pro RIP OFF

    • Written by from Cupertino

    I've been a Mac user for nearly 20 years. QuickTime Pro is an incredibly great tool for what it is. But everytime you upgrade Quicktime it deletes the Pro functions. I've purchase Pro twice and everytime I upgrade it gets deleted. Apple doesn't tell you this. Shame, shame!

    This just saved me about an hour of importing/exporting into iMovie just to trim 3 little clips for the web. I should have bought this a long time ago.
