    Why did I buy this product?

    • Written by from Cave Creek

    With all the apple addicts talking about user interface design like they owned the concept and positioning Apple as the great combator against the evil Microsoft Empire, you'd think that Quicktime would be both open and intuitive.

    I've used a lot of video editing, video rendering products over the past year but Quicktime Pro may be the worst - most restrictive/closed and non-intuitive interface ever!

    Perhaps I'm not geeky enough - it is for the true H.264, .mov, .qt, 2 pass, architecture engineer. I just want to save a few .wmv, .rm, and .avi movie file as .mov files.

    Fortunately, they've made it so slow compared to virtually every other product I've ever used, that I can get a lot of yardwork done while it "encodes" video. My wife is real happy with that.

    This Sucks

    • Written by from Boulder

    I bought QT Pro and am having playback problems. Unfortunately I'm apparently on my own as Apple seems to have no real support for this product. I read through all the material online but it didn't solve my problem. What a waste.

    Horrible Results with Quicktime Pro!

    • Written by from Whites Creek

    It has been a nightmare to try to install Quicktime Pro. Now that I did, it won't work, or works intermittently! All I see are green lines. For a few seconds I saw the movie, then green lines again. I work putting music to videos - I can't believe the shoddy support and unreliability of this product! Now I have to uninstall and re-install again, and if that doesn't work, go back to quicktime 6, which has no support. The tech guy didn't know what it was! It won't let me give a zero rating , so I gave it one star. This stuff is supposed to be easy! Buyer Beware! Ron

    QuickTime 7 Pro Is Terrible

    • Written by from la Quinta

    I have used QuickTime 6 Pro (PC Windows XP) for many years without difficulty. The new version, that I was forced to buy when I wanted by buy some iTunes, is terrible. When clicking on Export>Options, it crashes...every time. When transcoding from AVI to MPG4 it takes an hour while I have to watch stupid iTunes pop up ads. Apple can do better!

    What about mpeg-1 and mpeg-2

    • Written by from Crawley

    We bought the pro upgrade so we could convert from mov to mpeg, only to find it will only convert to mpeg-4 and Adobe After Effects will not import mpeg-4.

    This is a huge let-down. After promising so much this product delivers nothing.

    It's great if you want to dump movies on your iPod, but some of us have serious work to do.

    Why no additional CODEC downloads?

    $44.95 down the drain - thanks for nothing Apple !!!

    PS: The ONLY reason I rated this one star is because the forum wouldn't let me choose no stars.

    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.

    This is garbage

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Quicktime 7 Pro for Windows is garbage. It doesn't work. I never had a problem with Quicktime player, but the upgrade does not work at all. It tells me that I have Quicktime Pro installed, but there is no way of accessing it. My computer works well otherwise, and it far exceeds the minimum specifictions for the program. And tech support? Forget about it. Once they have your money, they don't give a ____. $30 bleeping THROWN OUT. Please be warned!!!! Zero stars.

    Slow to Export. Won't Open AVI.

    • Written by from Pleasanton

    I bought this product so I could export some MOV files (on xp). It takes forever compared to other software, exporting to other formats. 3 hrs now and 21% of a 5 minute clip.

    I also tried to open some AVI files. Every other piece of software opens them fine, but Quicktime only opens the soundtrack.

    Compared to other products, the support documentation is sparse.

    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.

    apple sweetness

    • Written by from MARIETTA

    I have an ipod 30g and its the cream of technology. The speed of one song to another is instant along with power up. I see the similarites with Quicktime and IPOD. The blue tubes and the personality. I love Quicktime and they were around in 1999. They have always been ahead of their time and my hat is off to them. Too bad I can't work for them. This program works great on a modern computer (XP and latest Mac)

    Poor Design & Not a Debugged Product

    • Written by from Walnut Creek

    1. This product has NOT been properly debugged, at least for the Windows environment. For example, windows do not close completely or move properly. Also changing of window size and saving of results is flakey.
    2. The video editing is not intuitive. For example, many editing features are found under the WINDOW drop down menu instead of under the EDIT menu.
    3. It lacks some basic capabilities such as supplying video transitions or more than minimal video effects. Microsoft Windows Movie Maker does a MUCH better job in this regard.
    4. It is incapable of reading Movie Maker files (type "wmv") unless I just haven't been able to find that capability yet.

    Although somewhat slow in exporting, QuickTime Pro is an amazing application and, for the price, it's incredibly powerful. It does exactly what I thought it would do. I don't understand why others are having problems... hmm...

    Works Just Like it says it does

    • Written by from barboursville

    I am not sure why so many people wrote bad reviews about this product,, because it works just fine, on Windows XP.

    you have to follow the directions and make sure you are using 7 player (brand new download), and if you follow the directions it works perfectly.

    In less than 45 minutes i had it in loaded and had put 6 clips togather to make a movie of my daughter. I have hours of little clips i can now put them all togather to make complete movies.

    thank you apple, i think this is wonderful

    and to anyone who can't get it to work, i think your machines have a under lying problem you need to address to get this to work the way it is meant to.

    i will recommend this to everyone i know,,

    Total GARBAGE

    • Written by from Arvada

    I have no idea how many hours I will spend removing this garbage so I can play movies again. $30 bucks thrown away, and now I have to fix the problems they caused and charged me for. Sure hope I get it figured out before I have to deal with it with my customers that make the mistake of buying it. DO NOT FOR ANY REASON PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT!! You will regret it, and I am a computer tech, so I DO know what I'm working with. MY BAD!!

    Nothing but hassle

    • Written by from Langley

    If apple is going to pretend that their products work straight out of the box, they might want to take another look at this one. It is slow, doesn't work properly, and wouldn't be worth half of what it costs even if it did. Typical apple: overpriced, underperforming and incompatible.

    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.
