    This is awful. DONT DO IT!!!

    • Written by from Luton

    I wanted to edit some a video I took on my IPhone with windows movie maker but it the program wouldn't MOV files so I downloaded this to try and do the same thing but it's rubbish. I gave up making the video with QTP and tried instead to convert my files with it, but the end result was terrible quality. I tried loads of different settings and nothing worked. This is so user unfriendly it's a joke. What a waste of £22 and 3hrs of my life i'll never get back.

    Crashes every time I try and export my video

    • Written by from York

    I've used Quicktime pro before so I wasn't expecting a full featured editor. I just want to export my quicktime movie to a different format. However, each time I get about 30% of the way and then it crashes with "an unknown error". I have huge amounts of memory and disk space and have tried pretty much every format possible.
    Quicktime Pro sets low goals and fails to meet them.

    Easy to use and good quality (on a Mac)

    • Written by from Bath

    A lot of the reviews for this are from Windows users, I suspect this utility may not run so well on a non-Apple OS. I have used it on Leopard and Lion with no problems at all, unlike many of the alternatives it is simple and straightforward to use.

    If you upgrade your computer the QT 7 licence will still work even though you may have to re-install the software.

    Pathetic ... The worst I have seen

    • Written by

    This is the most pathetic piece of video editing software that I have seen. Fails to perform even the basic tasks it claims to support and produces defective videos (e.g. trying to trim the video only trims audio and misaligns the Audio and Video in the remaining part).

    Having produced such a piece of rubbish Apple has no justification to criticise Microsoft anymore; Even movie maker beats it.

    Audio File Transfer

    • Written by

    I wanted this software in order to transfer podcasts from an internet radio station to my iPod, for example. However, during the transfer process not only does the file not copy, but the XP operating system itself completely crashes. Unless Apple can fix the apparent bugs within this application, I think that this software upgrade is simply a waste of money.

    Perfect for converting HD MOV files to HD MP4 files without re-compression

    • Written by

    If you need to convert camcorder high-definition AVCHD MOV files to work on other devices like a Sony Bravia TV, then this application can convert within seconds to the AVCHD MP4 format without re-compression, so no loss of video quality. You can even do simply trim , cut and merge edits before-hand, but a bit fiddly with the interface provided. When converting, simply choose standard MP4 format and advanced options, selecting pass-though for video. For audio, pass-though may work. but to work on the Sony TV, I needed to change the frequencey rate from 48Khz to 44Khz. Many other packages always re-compress the video which can take lengthy times especially on low-spec PC, so this application works a treat.

    Do not buy this product!

    • Written by from Oban

    Don't waste your money. The edit function is so basic. You can not see indavidual frames to cut and paste. Totally gutted I wasted my money on this. Doesn't do what I expected at all. I am going to try and get a refund!

    avi files to the iphone

    • Written by from farnham

    Rubbish. I bought this so that I could transfer some avi files taken on a compact camera to show on my iphone. It worked in that I managed to get them onto iTunes but they won't sync with the iphone so £20 wasted!

    Not impressed

    • Written by from Wolverhampton

    Have loads of videos from concerts been to and was bought an i-pod. As family vids taken on same phones/camera's imported to ipod, thought I'd get these precious concert vids converted. 3 hours l8r and totally cheesed off, wished I'd read all the reviews 1st warning this is not what it's labelled as! Avoid like the plague but - if tempted - READ THE OTHER REVIEWS!! Not worth 20p let alone £20!

    A word rhyming with tripe

    • Written by from Kesh

    I can’t even rotate my QT videos with the Pro version; Windows Live Movie Maker is way better. Worst £20 I ever spent. Am I missing something?

    Quick Time Pro

    • Written by from Salisbury

    Extremely easy to use software allowed me to edit my video clips and compress to a tiny fraction of the original size ideal for emailing.
    Intuitive controls meant that there was no need to read instructions first, just got in there and got on with it.

    Does what it says on the tin

    • Written by from Bath

    I sometimes take short quicktime movies on my digital Panasonic still camera for sending short clips of my theatrical props to my customers, and I purchased QT Pro to edit the films, both to get rid of the bit at the beginning and end that is of no use, and also to reduce the size of file to make the movie small enough to email. It took me about two minutes after installing to edit and save a film to just what I want. Well worth £20 (Including vat). It saves me loads of time over using my DV camera and Widows Movie Maker.I will give it four stars for now, I may review it further later.

    Windows version does not support WMV!!!!!!!

    • Written by from ASHTEAD

    i simply cannot believe it - the WINDOWS version of QuickTime Pro doesn't support WMV. What on Earth are these people playing at!!!!!!!!!!!! I feel completely let down and will be asking for my money back. To call it the Windows version and then not support the standard Windows format it quite simply rediculous.

    did what i wanted...

    • Written by from Bath

    I needed to edit mpeg4 files. this was the cheapest thing I found. problems are that when you want to delete, cut, copy etc, you have to select where to do this. the problem with this it does't always delete at exactly the right place, even if you have the sliders in the right place! Present movie is great.

    Blame the user, not the software

    • Written by from amsterdam

    QuickTime Pro is the Best value video tool Editing Software ever, it is simple, it looks cool ( not like those MS apps) and it is well worth the money. I use it professionally for all my compressions to Youtube and the web: H264 playing inside a Flash player, IT LOOKS AMAZING. I can add soundtracks, change aspect ratio, get precise movie properties, etc
    Ok so it could come with Mpeg2 codecs, and Video record straight from DV to H264 like in the Mac Version. But I suppose this has to do with MPEG License Agency and hardware vendors. Worth every penny, but I know how to use it.

    • Written by from CAMBERLEY

    Not bad for £20.00 if all you want it for is to transfer videos to your ipod and it doesn't play MPEG files so your limited on what you can play. So for the ipod nut a good buy but for all you film buffs try elceware.

    Slow Time

    • Written by

    I continue to use Quick Time because other people send me stuff in Quick Time format and I can't transfer it into a better format without buying the Quick Time upgrade. As I refuse to buy the Quick Time 7 Pro upgrade I am constantly bombarded with Quick Time spam asking me to buy this upgrade - annoying. As other reviewers have stated Quick Time is slow and limiting in its free format. Windows Movie Maker (free) is basic but so much better. "Quick Time" should be renamed Slow Time - to avoid confusion

    What a waste of money

    • Written by from Ware

    I should have known better and read the reviews before buying. Have tried to open MPEG files and it won't play on Quick Time 7 Pro files run perfectly on other apps. I have will not waste another second on trying to get this to work - life is too short. Will report to trading standards and try and get refund. This is a shocking way for a large firm like Apple to treat PC users, if this is a ploy to get PC users to move to MAC then it has backfired as far as I am concerned.

    I just want to save a video file and all I get is "do you want to buy now?" - I have bought this software TWICE and although it installs, my pc won't recognise it on actual playback use and so I can't save the file I want to upload to my facebook - How come they make it so easy to get and install, and yet, so hard to actually use where you need it? I loathe software programs which don't care about the end user beyond the credit card input page! Thanks Big Boys - one day your time will come!!!!
