    Not as advertised

    • Written by from Okemos

    A lot of the problems expressed in the other reviews happened to me too. Exporting from FCExpress to QuickTime Pro = chopped footage; difficulty registering the product; etc. Using QuickTime Pro has only resulted in frustration and wasted time. I would immediately return it if I could. Heed the warnings....

    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!

    Why are you charging MONEY for this?

    • Written by from Boerne

    I can't believe you are charging customers 30 bucks for this player! I bought this for the "full screen" playback feature, and I have to tell you I've NEVER been more disappointed. The video is jerky and the sound is too compressed and sounds "phase-y!" I've been using both Windows Media Player and Winamp in years past, and I've never had such poor playback on either compared to your PRO player! No "pro" I know would ever settle for such poor poor quality! So much shame on you!

    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!!!

    Apple Fails Big Time with QT Pro 7

    • Written by from New York

    Bought QTPro and the mpeg2 addin.

    Comments: Need to make videos of bands I work with. As I have a PC, QTPro7 won't let me capture Mini-DV to .mov in one step. Second, converting avi files to MP4, mov takes way too long.... so long it's not practical to think of making a conversion with QTPro - unless I do it overnight. Finally, email video share only works with macs as well. These disasters should be mentioned upfront to the public before they waste their money on QT Pro Software.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Everything worked fine with itunes and Quicktime until I loaded the latest version. I tried removing them and re-installing, made no difference. This was definitely not a good move Apple!

    Slow, Horrible, Waste of money!

    • Written by from Scarborough

    Having just bought my new iPod, I was all excited about being able to play my pre-existing music videos. The sales told me that QuickTime Pro was needed to convert the format so I did what I was told and spent $40CAD on the program. Little did I know, it took 20 minutes just to convert 20% of a 3 minute-music-video. I ended just going on google to search for a freeware that does the conversion, and IT WORKS MUCH FASTER AND DOES NOT LAG MY COMPUTER!

    Quicktime Pro was certainly not money well spent. For those new iPoders just like me, a word of advice: Do some research first before getting tricked into buying a program that does not work!

    I had Itunes and quicktime working perfectly until I made the mistake of installing the latest update. Now it doesn't work. I have uninstalled, cleaned up the registry, re-installed, unintsalled, rebooted and rebooted. It's rubbish. Well done Apple. Think you need to roll back the update to version 5!
