    Quicktime PRO upgrade

    • Written by from Perth

    Purchased the PRO upgrade for my 14 year son to be able to transfer his DVD music videos to his Video ipod. After 3 hrs we all gave up with trying the software which has got hopeless instructions, is pretty user UN-friendly (in interface terms)and has next to no help or proper tutorials for DVD to ipod video transfers. It was a complete waste of money. We ended up spending a further $39 on an alternative software package that can do what Quicktime PRO should be doing with ease

    I bought quicktime pro for the "Full screen" control feature. When I used "Full screen" the entire picture became blurry! I bought Quicktime Pro so I could show movies(taken with my cell phone) for a court case! Now I can't show the movies with "Full Screen" because everything is blurred out! What a waste of money. When pictures are brought to full screen, the clarity should be the same as the smaller picture.

    Great App!

    • Written by from Winston-Salem

    This is an excellent application. In addition to being able to view high definition video full screen, there are many other useful features; audio and video recording, exporting in many different formats, and much more.

    Most of you "PC" users having problems must be horrible readers. I can guarantee you forgot to download the free version of 7 first. EVERYTHING apple puts out is easy to use, unlike Windows where you need decades of experience. Spent ten years using a PC and never thought I'd switch. It only took 1 month on a mac sell me for life. For all you illiterate and computer illiterate windows users.......READ DIRECTIONS FULLY! This is a great program and with the help of a free program on the web, it will even let you put your DVD's on your Ipod or Cell phone! Product works fine and they should put a label warning against user error!

    Windows users IT WORKS I was worried too

    • Written by from Albuquerque

    I am running Quicktime Pro 7 on Win XP with a AMD athlon 1800+ and 256 MB RAM. I had no problems with the install and so far no problems with the operation. It is not intuitive interface for win users. When you are having trouble with an operation just relax and say to yourself "maybe it is just that easy" don't overthink it. It worked for me

    I`m a pc user and I`m use to work with windows moviemaker. I only bought quicktimepro because moviemaker can`t/won`t handle quicktime files. Here`s my experience after 6 hours:

    :) installation, no problems.(5 min)
    :/ make sure your computer has alot of RAM. LOT`S OF RAM.
    :( If you like to work with moviemaker don`t never ever think about starting using quicktimepro. It use lot`s of ram to work. It`s not logic compared to moviemaker, and it`s S L O W...ZZzzz...

    I wish I could get my money back. Now I will try to find a program that can konverte quicktime files to wmv.

    Can't get it to work...

    • Written by from Austin

    I just bought and installed QuickTime Pro for Windows XP but something seems to be missing, in parts, yet in the Control Panel, it says that it's upgraded to QuickTime Pro. I've been searching the web, etc., reinstalled QuickTime 7.1, etc. but am not getting anywhere. I'm trying to create a QuickTime movie with QuickTime movie clips and add sound. Yet, I feel totally lost and am about to give up! I really wish there was a tech/teach support number to call. I'm a regular computer user but am very frustrated with this. Maybe it's a firewall issue, or something obvious that I'm missing, but, it's useless as is.

    Agree with KS from silkeborg

    • Written by from Knoxville

    I also only paid for Quicktime Pro so that I could edit my video files. I bought a new digital camera and to my surprise the video files are only compatible with Quicktime. I was used to using Windows Media files and editing them with Windows Movie Maker, but I can't do that with this new camera. I wish I could take the camera back and get one that records WMV or MPEG videos. I can't figure out how to get Quicktime 7 Pro to edit videos. Can't say what I would like to due to the "Terms and Conditions," but I will say that I do not recommend purchasing this IF you plan to use it in the same manner as Windows Movie Maker.

    It works absolutely perfect on WinXP

    • Written by from elkins

    I have the Windows version. I have no problems. I've been using QuickTime Pro since version 5, and have never had a problem. If you are having problems with it on Windows, look for help in the forums. I've seen quite a few complaints about 'buffer underrun'. One of two things is going on: you have too many QuickTime movies playing at once and/or you don't have enough physcial RAM. Windows uses from 300 to 500MB to run. I have 3GB. I've had 9 movies open at once, while transcoding a 10th.

    Good but not great. It does what it's supposed to.

    • Written by from Louisville

    Based on reading some of the terrible reviews, I almost didn't buy Quicktime 7 Pro for Windows. I'm operating on Windows XP and my system isn't brand new and sometimes is a bit fluky.

    That said,I'm glad I went ahead. The entire upgrade process worked smoothly and was over in less than half an hour. The software isn't completely intuitive and the online help is a bit dense, more like Microsoft, but I very quickly was able to achieve full functionality. Basically, within an hour, I had accomplished all I'll ever want to do with this software.

    One suggestion: When you're first working with the software, use "Save As" at first and work on a copy rather than on an original. That will save you the heartache of ruining your only copy of a precious film.

    Wow, for those PC users who have bashed this product, you must be missing something. This is SO easy to use, and the help pages have clean and clear instructions for those of us who don't just get it. I have used multiple (five) different video editing programs, and this is BY FAR THE EASIEST TO USE!!!!! I appreciate the reviews of those who mentioned to download the player 7.1 before you install. I have had no issues and would like to see what else MAC comes up with. Only wish they had media card readers on their notebooks and home units. Got to get back to some EASY editing.....

    I've wasted $30!

    • Written by from Summit

    I'm tech saavy and ignored the negative reviews. Wish I hadn't. This product is not user friendly.Sure I can watch my videos but conversion takes forever and trying to edit is a problem. I've found much easier programs that allow you to use the demo before purchasing to see what the product is like.
    This was a big disappointment. I'm stymied!

    disgusted and terribly disappointed

    • Written by from Elk Grove

    I should have heeded the warning of my son not to purchase this product. I can only assume most of the positive comments were from Mac users. I spent almost two days tinkering with QT7 Pro with negative result. I could not open the files I'd like to export to my iPod Video. Although, I managed to export a few files, they were only 2-4 seconds in length, and when I played them in iTunes, the screen was blank, and with a note, "NOTHING PLAYING". I called tech support and I did not get any help. I now kinda regret buying this 80GB Ipod Video. I really thought I could use it to save home video files that I can show to relatives and friends. Help anyone!!!

    An upgrade price for a $30 piece of software?

    • Written by from Bothell

    I have a hard time wondering why anyone would complain about a full featured editing and playback software package costing ONLY $30 not having an lower upgrade cost. Quicktime at $30 is less than any other editing software environment out there! We're not talking Final Cut here that costs a grand and which has a very resonable upgrade rate... Get over it people. Quicktime is an awesome value!

    h.264 sucks

    • Written by

    I bought quick time pro one month ago. I found my old camera it is 1.3 mega pixels. I made a video, and then I went to the quick time website found the directions on how to make a h.264 movie. I followed the exact steps on how to make a h.264 movie. It took about 20 minutes to finish. The end product was 4 times the size of the original. I played both the versions side by side without the sound and there was barely any difference. I think there is not much improvement in the h.264 codec. I am hoping to see some improvement in there next HD codec.
