    Good, but...

    • Written by from HAYWARDS HEATH

    This product is good, and as another reviewer says, it "does what it says on the tin". I find the easy Audio Recording feature particularly useful when I'm just playing with ideas.

    But come on, everyone knows this functionality should be built into Mac OS X as standard...

    Be aware

    I got this product to convert my digital camera videoclips from MPEG1 to MPEG4 to be enable to use the clips in iMovie. The problem is, that the sound is gone once I convert. If you need to convert smal videoclips - then get the MPEG Streamclip.

    Otherwise its a fair product.

    Good encoder

    • Written by from Birmingham

    Offering a variety of different options, QuickTime Pro does exactly what I wanted it to do - it converts videos to different formats (including iPhone and iPod friendly formats) easily, however for large files, don't expect the process to be fast, it can take some time to convert.

    Also remember the ability to create the files you want is entirely dependant on Quicktime being able to open the files in the first place - and whilst getting the pro upgrade does expand the range of files you can play to a certain extent (including FLV for example), its only as good as the codecs installed on your system.

    Did what I wanted

    • Written by from NUNEATON

    Could not import MPEG1 Muxed video from iphoto into imovies. Downloaded QT pro 7 - exported to iphotos as Quicktime movie - imovie read the files and now part of a movie project/DVD. I read somewhere that mpeg1 muxed format combines audio with video - so after export left with only video (no audio), but no worries as audio on this occasion not required. 20 quid well spent to get the footage I wanted into imovie project. Registration process easy following link from online invoice to website.

    QuickTime 7 Pro.

    • Written by from WORTHING

    Makes movies just about watchable on my old Mac computer. It is still not perfect but good enough for me. I am pleased with the purchase and can recommend it.

    Good product, shame about encoding speed

    • Written by from Frome

    I have a 1.33 GHz Powerbook and can confirm that encoding speed for ipod video is very slow with Quicktime Pro. However, it does produce good results, noticeably better than, for instance Videora iPod Converter (for windows), and any kind of video encoding will always involve long waits. I would be interested to compare times with a G5 system.

    If ripping DVDs for ipod is your thang, then I strongly recommend the freeware utility Handbrake, which can do this in a single step, is relatively straightforward to use, and is I think faster than QT due to using a different encoding engine. I am actually using it right now and it is averaging 14 fps which is an order of magnitude faster than quicktime!

    The short and blunt: Quicktime Pro does what it says on the tin with aplomb, I could not do without it, but be prepared to leave your computer for a long time for large encodes.

    To those who post negative reviews just through not being able to use it, I suggest a little perseverance might pay off and recommend other users to disregard their input.

    Good but not perfect: 4 stars.

    Someone wrote that they were not new to macs, yet couldn't work out where to put the code.

    I'm brand new to mac, I've had it since xmas day, a little pressie, and had no problem pumping in my code.

    It's easy. Go into system preferences>quicktime.

    Quick, easy and simple

    • Written by from Chesham

    Quicktime Pro is easy to install, just go into the quicktime menu (inside the application) and click 'Register'. Simple!
    The conversions work just as you would expect, and the full screen viewing is pretty cool as well.
