    Another version, another $30...

    • Written by from Twain Harte

    Its great that new versions of QT come out, but I am getting sick of always having to dish out another 30 bucks every 6 months because a new version comes out. And it seems 7 is required for the new iTunes features. So either I keep 6 which works fine, but miss out on new stuff. Or upgrade to 7, and have to dish out more money for the features I already had. Which wouldn't bother me if new versions came out once every 18 months or something. I don't have anything against paying for software I use, unless I am having to repurchase the software more than once a year. But as far as the software itself goes, its great. It may not have as many features as players like VLC, but it makes up for it in ease of use, its hardware acceleration, and its ability to play H.264 video in real time on hardware that is a few years old.

    I am giving it 3 stars, 5 for the software itself, which is great. But knocking it down 2 stars because of Pro users always having to buy new versions. Would be nice if a license worked for the current version, and one big release after that.

    Downgrade to Quicktime 10!

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Please, oh please Mr. Apple, return the functionality to Quicktime 10 that was present in QT Pro 7. I bought a new Mac and am sad to learn that I have downgraded by upgrading. IMovie is not for me and Final Cut is an unnecessary step in my editing/exporting/copying and pasting process. Hear my plea!

    So far not impressed

    • Written by from Granada Hills

    Quicktime Pro does not give you the option to export .mp3 files. If I would have known this before I purchased the license, I would have opted for a different solution.

    Disappointed Apple Customer

    Great for simple editing tasks

    • Written by from Tualatin

    QT7 Pro will do simple editing without transcoding, so it is lossless and fast. Great for trimming or extracting portions of videos. It also does very flexible transcoding. It isn't a replacement for iMovie nor is it for screen captures.

    Here's hoping Apple either keeps this running forever or brings QuickTime X up to its capabilities (which so far doesn't seem to be happening).

    Great Software

    • Written by from Mason

    Converting my home videos and movies to iPod, iPhone, MPEG4 and other formats was quick, easy and without hassles. The results look great. Importing and exporting image sequences is also a nice feature as was combining separate sound and movie tracks. Editing features are basic but they get the job done. To sum it up I was very impressed with QuickTime 7 Pro.

    Is Apple abandoning you (us) QuickTime, Final Cut Pro?

    • Written by from sao paulo - sp

    We The Pro People, have been using Apple for many years. Could someone from Apple please make us, try and understand:
    • Why do I have to go BACK to QT 7 to use QT PRO? (aren't you embarrassed to ask this?)
    • We The Pro People with what you are doing to Final Cut Pro. Why?
    • What is the idea with Lion X? Why are there no major updates to fix so much? Or maybe you could forget it, follow the yellow brick road and come up with Bear X, or with OhMy X (Lions, Tigers and Bears, Oh my!).
    We The Pro People have been faithful to you Apple for many years, and in return got the best from Apple. Please keep feeding us the best to keep our faith strong.
    Keep Mac OS X robust, well designed and in the front.
    Or is Apple so bewildered with iPhone, iPod, iPad, that Apple is losing interest in We The Pro People?
    Also in this relationship, I would rather have it straightforward, and not through subtle hints. If you are to leave, let us part as friends. It has been so good for so many years..

    Please learn a thing or two about video!!!

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I have to tell you, reading many of the reviews below makes me suspicious about who's using this product. I work with video, animation, and graphics on a daily basis—professionally—so I have experience with QT. Needless to say, the ridiculous and vague reviews about QT7 Pro leads me to believe that there's a serious lack of technical [video] education to use QT effectively.

    Different codecs, data rates, dimensions, etc all have a profound effect on the quality of the work you're expecting to get. Do your homework! And just because you can't rip commercial DVDs doesn't mean you have to get mad at Apple. Jeeeezz!

    QuickTime 7 Pro Is Indispensable

    • Written by from Rowland Heights

    It's rare that a day goes by when I don't use QuickTime 7 Pro for one thing or another. Its editing, save, and export functions are invaluable for the time and trouble they save. It's a Swiss Army Knife kind of app...by which I mean that there are other tools that are better at doing certain things, but none of them are as handy or easy to use.

    And a round of huzzahs for the QT 7 player is in order as well. Its scroll bar (which resizes with the window) allows location control that is impossible with the fixed-size slider in the more recent QuickTime X...and the counter tracks the content timeline more accurately into the bargain.

    Out of date and slow

    • Written by from Prince Albert

    I moved from Windows where I used an old version of Roxio to convert video formats. Roxio worked in real time, 1 hour file took 1 hour to convert. My iMac is 5 years newer then my PC and with QuickTime 7 Pro the conversion is more like 5 to 1, 1 hour file took 5 hours to convert. I did not know QuickTime Pro 7 was so out of date. Sorry, but without an update QuickTime Pro is a waste of money.

    Great Product! A most have for pro video editing

    • Written by from Kaysville

    To all the people having issues with Snow Leopard/Quicktime X installing Quicktime 7 Pro:
    To install on SL, you need to download Quicktime 7 Player for SL (under the downloads section). After installing it, run it and go to Quicktime 7 Player > Registration and simply enter your registration information. That's it, your QT7 player in Snow Leopard is now QT7 pro coexisting with Quicktime X.

    Fantastic encoding

    • Written by from WEST DES MOINES

    QuickTime 7 Pro for Mac OS X, with its H.264 Codec and AAC audio makes a perfect partner for a device like El Gato's EyeTV. With WMV support, QuickTime can banish Windows Media Player from your desktop.

    Great App in need of an update

    • Written by from MILWAUKEE

    This is the best desktop app for quickly editing and sharing video and audio. QuickTime pro is an indispensable media for professionals or anyone who loves creating video and animation on the fly. It's ideal for making quick edits without loading your entire movie and photo library in iMovie. I can only hope this gets a proper update once Apple releases Lion.

    Works Great!

    • Written by from Davis

    I bought this yesterday after contemplating the cost, because I really needed something that would convert movies taken with my Samsung NV11 (.avi) into .mov format, and this was the only thing I could find.

    Well, after converting my movies they seem brighter than before! It was definitely worth it!

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    When I read reviews about Quicktime from users PC and users Mac there is no doubt at all.
    Windows "systeme" is a reel nightmare.But of course the Pc users never want to admit this fact and put all the problems on Apple.
    Just a question for them: Why Microsoft Word works better on a Mac than a Pc?

    Not compatible with any newer Mac operating system!

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Be warned that if you're running Quicktime X, which if your system is 4 years or newer, this will NOT BE COMPATIBLE! Can't believe that apple would make this Pro upgrade not compatible with any newer system, but they did. Sloppy. And not like them. Very disappointing.

    Price is worth it

    • Written by from West Hurley

    The low price is worth it. By buying this upgrade it makes QuickTime actually usable for more than just playback. The ability to save movies and edit them makes this great software better and more usable.
