    Quick TIme 7 Pro

    • Written by from Chicago

    It's a wonderfull tool but should be something provided when you buy the new ipods that also play dvd/movies.

    This is a hidden/extra cost to you when it should not be.

    The price/cost of my wife's birthday present was actually $330.00 and not $300.00 because I had to buy QuickTime 7 Pro ($30.00) to be able to play movies on the Ipod.

    Works for me

    • Written by from Hampstead

    I bought this program for one main reason - to enable me to compress the high-quality (but huge) video files created with my Canon A620 digital camera, yet retain the excellent clarity and resolution of the originals. To that effect, I could not be more pleased. When I use QT Pro H.264 encoder to compress a 79 MB HQ video into less than 3 MB and the end result looks 95+% as good as the original - well, that's just sweet - and well worth the purchase price.

    Poor Product from apple

    • Written by from plandome

    I go tthis product just so i can put videos on my ipod...i was disapointed at the way you need to convert the file...its requires you to convert the file one at a time (you cant have set up a list and let it run..) and the conversion time is very slow. I gave it a two instead of a one because it does what it says but in a very poor fashion...and is not worth $30.00

    Delayed Write Failure and Buffer Overrun

    • Written by from BURBANK

    On my Windows based BOXX Workstation, Version 7 causes the drive to disappear with the error “Delayed Write Failure” when playing Animation Codec movies. Reboot. On my other Windows system, I get Buffer Overrun errors.

    I’ll be going back to Version 6.5.2 as this was the last version that worked for me. That or I need to buy a Mac… but I really like having two buttons on my mouse.

    Big fan. Haven't had a single issue with it, on any of our Macs at home OR on any of our 70+ Macs at work. Killer exports. Great with the iPod. Use it every day now. Quite the powerhouse.

    Do NOT Buy, this application still need work.

    • Written by from phoenix

    This is truely a great application, but for most computer it will not work. I hate to say this since apple is such a fine company, but it still needs work. The buffer may not always pick up the information that you need for your media. I have tried using this player to run on my companies servers, and it crashed our systems because it couldn't pick up data fast enough. And we have a T3 connection. If you really want a top of the line media player, just wait until QT8 HIGH DEFINITION is up for download.

    • Written by from Alden

    To all the people that write bad reviews...you think that you'd know what you're talking about before you bad mouth the program. Quicktime pro never said it could rip DVD's, but it will convert them to put on your iPod and I have had no problem doing that. Granted it does take a little longer than I would like but it does it masterfully!!!

    • Written by from Parsippany

    I bought QT 7 Pro for one thing only- to convert AVI files from my video camera into Quicktime so I can put them online. The video quality is great and the files are nice and small. No complaints here. And it's a great value at $30!

    I can't vouch for the ipod and DVD-related complaints since I didn't try those features and probably never will.

    Cant rip DVDs

    • Written by from Rahway

    If you think I tunes pro will let you rip your dvd's so you can watch them on the road with an ipod, think again. You need an additional 20$ MPEG 2 decoder. What a rip off, they could have easily included that, H.264 is partly based off of MPEG-2. They are just sticking it too us is all.

    Maybe it's okay

    • Written by

    I got QT Pro to make H.264 and IPOD conversions of exisiting files. On my first attemps, it crashed with a buffer overrun error. Then I simply WAITED after opening the file for QT to fill its buffers. Then I could proceed with the conversions. The output quality is good and the interface simple. The bug is irritating and could be fixed with a simple "busy..." message. But QT Pro is useable and versatile. Many many conversions and settings available. No video or audio enhancement options such as color correction or volume but what do you expect for $29?

    Ouicktime Pro on PC Works Great...!!

    • Written by from Rochester

    Ok, I'm running Quicktime Pro on a 2.4 Ghz Pentium 4 with a gig of memory, Ge-Force 6200OC 256 MB DDR, 80 gig system drive and a 160 gig RAID, 300 GB external fire wire drive. When I upgraded to OT 7, the free version I didn't have any sound or if I did, it sounded like a CD skipping. The system would also hang and I had to fire up Task Manager to quit it. I did some trouble shooting and found a problem with my Audigy Sound Card. I updated the drivers and reset the defaults and everything works as advertised. I think this is a great product and I have converted video from my Sony VX1000 and it plays smoothly on my iPod with no problems.

    Pros & Cons (But It Worked...Barely)

    • Written by from Newington

    I was close to not buying this because I read all of the negative reviews, but it worked fine for me.

    There are definitely pros and cons to this program. It's not as great as Apple claims, but it does barely do what they claim is does.

    Pros:

    I found the instructions very easy to understand, and I had the whole setup process complete in under 10 minutes.

    I only used the program to put videos on my iPod, and it worked like a charm. I only downloaded quicktime files, so I can't say how it worked for other formats, but for putting quicktime movie trailers on the iPod, it worked just fine.

    Cons:

    That being said, I must say that it is ridiculously over-priced and should have been included with the purchase of a $300 iPod in the first place. The only other problem is the speed to convert a song to the correct format to put it on the iPod. For a 2 minute movie trailer, it took about 5-10 minutes to convert the movie. If you were adding bigger files, plan on giving it plenty of time.

    Overall, 3/5 stars for price and slowness, but it barely does what Apple claims it will do, so I'd say buy it if you want to get quicktime format movies on your video iPod.

    This isnt as bad as they say

    • Written by from Torrington

    If you are getting this to convert some of your videos to iPod format, its really not that bad as long as you follow the directions they give you. but if your using this as a media player, its terrible. it lags and will freeze up your computer. (and this is a good comp im running it on) youd be better off going and downloading some cheap player you find off of google

    Extremely poor by any standards

    • Written by from EPSOM

    I bought the upgrade to Pro despite reading the poor reviews here. I thought that maybe it was a case of only the dissatisfied or inexperienced customers being willing to write a review. I was wrong. This is simply a poor product, as a player it is slow, crashes or freezes when playing any large file and won’t play some AVI’s even when the codecs are available.

    As an encoder it is quite simply appalling, it is (unbelievably) slow, uninformative, and the UI is poorly laid out. I really don’t expect to wait 3 hours to encode a 4 minute video clip on a twin processor machine with 4GB of memory. It only takes me that long to encode a 50 minute 9Mbps DVD on two pass VBR!

    As for the quality of h.264, to me it’s not noticeably better on a like for like basis than WMV9. But with 3 hours for each encoding I haven’t exactly had much opportunity to test this.

    Finally, and this simply sums it all up, there is an upgrade available, however it’s a 35Mb download (because it includes iTunes!) and I can’t even get it to run!

    I know £19.99 is not a huge amount of money compared to the cost of Premiere Pro or my editing card, BUT in comparison to BSPlayer (free) and some of the free MPEG encoders this is simply money for old rope.

    I strongly suggest Apple looks at these complaints and re-writes the software. If necessary go and buy source from one of the free players.

    Don't know what everyone is complaining about...

    • Written by from Middleburg

    After reading all the negative reviews I was reluctant to buy the upgrade,... after some thought and thinking it can't be that bad, I made the $30 plunge. I followed the directions and made my first m4v. All though it didn't put the movie on my desktop as the instructions claim, it did create it in the same directory that the originally movie was located. Then I opened iTunes and dropped the m4v on my iPod, it synced and then I watched the movie on my iPod with no problem. The picture and sound quality is great!
