    Not worth it.

    • Written by from Redding

    If you are thinking of purchasing QuickTime 7 Pro, make sure you know exactly what comes in it and what you plan on using it for. When it says "capture video" it means from a webcam, and "save video from internet" it means a very limited amount of videos, aka not any video from the web.

    This is not what I paid for nor was it what I expected.

    Quicktime

    • Written by from OAKLAND

    Quicktime worked great for a time. Now it is the cause of my computer crashing. I think apple is spending too much time on iphone and not enough to make sure other products work.(yes I have the latest update)
    Thumbs down. I want my money back.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Albany

    I use QuickTime because it plays movies full screen on the TV from my Mac Mini without stuttering, unlike iTunes which occasionally stutters and causes my 20 month old to scream in that oh so ear piercing pitch that only little children can produce, and that causes my 6 month old to start crying. I cannot believe that a program like QuickTime Pro doesn't have the simple capability to create a playlist. I backed up all my son's DVD's to our Time Capsule so I could play his movies without having to constantly switch the DVD's, but this isn't much of an improvement. I could have stayed with the free version if I knew Pro couldn't create a playlist either.

    Doesn't Work for me Either

    • Written by from Livonia

    I too did exactly as the e-mail said. I cut and pasted my code to make sure it was exact, and my name as well. It says QuickTime Pro on the area where you enter the code, but none of the upgraded keys are highlighted and so I can't use any of the features. Therefore a one star rating.

    Frustrating and I don't look forward to hours on the phone getting to a techie. Any suggestions?

    Why does anyone need QuickTime Pro?

    • Written by from Margate

    Since my first QuickTime Pro 3 I have had to upgrade to the next Pro level because every time the update comes in, it gets rid of the Pro. I never could use Pro for very long until I figured out what Apple was doing to me. I don't think the upgrade to Pro is worth anything. Other products can do the same thing without all the problems ... from the key not working right ... to finding where QuickTime Pro went to after an update.

    Buyer Beware!

    • Written by from Ottawa

    After spending the better part of a day trying to convert a set of digital photos into a slide show with accompanying music from iTunes using Quicktime 7 Pro, including reading the sparse information on slideshows in the Quicktime manual (that is focused almost exclusively on movies), I was unsuccessful. The Apple promo info on the Quicktime pages makes it seem like producing a slideshow is a piece of cake. I finally resorted to calling AppleCare Support only to discover that Quicktime Pro is classified as a "pro" product that requires a fee of $200.00 from a 3rd party technical support company. Despite having AppleCare Support and Apple's statement of support for any Apple software purchased from Apple for 90 days after purchase, there is no mention of the additional and exorbitant fee for technical support for its "Pro" products. The least Apple should do is include a mention of this on its web site and beef up its manual for Quicktime 7 to provide more information and examples for converting digital photos to slideshows.

    I upgraded the software as I couldnt open some file formats including my movies from Sony camcoder.I still can't open those with the pro version so it was useless.

    very limited

    • Written by from Winnipeg

    Not a very useful tool. There are more flexible format converters out there that are available for free or for a nominal fee. I have tried to use QT several times, but there are too many formats it cannot read or export to.

    Flat out doesn't work for converting .mov to .wmv

    • Written by from San Diego

    I bought this product to convert .mov files to .wmv. The feature is present but it doesn't work. I had a five minute video and it would convert at most 25 seconds of it. Tried multiple times - each time a different result but never a success.

    I should have stuck with the free version

    doesn't work

    • Written by from Sedona

    After buying QT Pro for Mac, paying, registering and then opening QT movies, all the editing tools remain greyed-out and do not work. What a waste of $33!
    Frustrated at this Windows-like process.

    What a piece of junk!

    • Written by

    It won't play hardly any formats except QT. There appears to be no plug-ins that would allow playback of other formats. Mac's are the best computers: why are they inextricablty linked to this rotten viewer? I guess Apple just can't pass up another opportunity to shoot itself in it's foot again. Oh well. I doubt you'll see this review, critical comments aren't allowed.

    what did I get?

    • Written by from Federal Way

    I bought this to convert other formats, like it says it does, but so far have not found ONE other format that it would convert for me to use. In fact, I was just given a project to burn some copies of a training video someone had recorded on a new video camera that records directly to a hard drive (no tape), and I can't open any of the files. MPEG-2. Now I have to drop another $20 to convert them? Quicktime Pro, for me, was a waste of my money.

    Waste of money for format conversions!

    • Written by from Flemington

    Literature states "Export to over a dozen different video and audio formats." Too bad none can address the audio problems encountered when importing video clips from iPhoto to iMovie. There's a reason this product is non-refundable!
    There is plenty of freeware that will do the job nicely.

    Not sure what the upgrade gave me.

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Agree with many other reviewers. Still can't e-mail these video files and get others to be able to open them, there is no indication that I even have Pro when I look at "About" QT Player. $30 down the toilet?

    excruciating

    • Written by from Prosper

    Because of the excellent stability and performance of the Apple Mac platform, I am not often inclined to criticize...

    This whole Quicktime X/Quicktime 7/Quicktime Pro upgrade is a train wreck. With Snow Leopard as the OS, you have install Quicktime 7 from the OS installation CD and then unlock the Pro functionality using the Pro registration key. This process is a bit kludgy considering Apple's normal attention to ease of use.

    The big problem is that unlocked Quicktime 7 Pro reverts to Player for some strange reason. I have not spent any time figuring out this obvious defect--and I shouldn't need to. Attention Apple, fix this nonsensical process or issue a refund; this is the sort of issue I would expect to encounter on a Wintel platform, not Mac.

    Video encoding bug. Audio gets out of sync with video.

    • Written by from Issaquah

    I wanted to create video podcast. When encoding simple videos through iSight, the video gets out of sync with the audio after only a few minutes. I see a lot of people having this problem and so far no good solution.

    I tried external firewire camera as well. No luck. Playing back previously created content may be ok. But encoding simply does not work right (I have brand new MacBook Pro).
