    Don't waste your money

    I may not have done enough research, but bought this to do some file compression for web movies. It doesn't work! I think I need to shell out an additional $20 for an add-on. Absolutely ridiculous! There is better, cheaper software out there.

    Can't apple just make their "official" media player play different video formats!? I always have to chase new plugins and formats codec to install because many many website and video files just don't open on Quick time.. Can't you just make that player work?

    Most popular HD camcorder format support is missing, AVCHD.

    Useless for people using camcorders.

    not for professionals

    It is very cool for some users because it is now more simple to export for ipod, iphone and apple TV. However, the old way to export files was better. We are not able to chose an specific codec anymore... If you need to export a video to a specific editor, such as apple pro res, HDVCPRO, animation, etc, you have to do it on another software, because the new version is limited to some few presets. Good for beginners, bad for professionals... Overall it is cool, but I miss the export options. Hope the new versions can bring it back!

    Quicktime glitch/ where's the solution

    I have the same glitch as many others listed. It won't open any browser video--only displays the Q with a question mark. So where is the solution??? Please Apple????

    So much for so little

    I have used it on both Windows and Mac with no problems. Once you realize the breadth, depth, and scope of this product it is quite amazing. I think some reader comments have to do with botched up systems. Since QT can do so many things it takes some time to get familiar. It is a major application, a media equivalent of a suite of applications. As such it powers FCP, iLife, and many other applications. QT-7 with H.264 is an amazing scalable codec and the online tutorials really helped me to use it. You can record, edit, and transform media.

    Would Have Been Nice to Know!!!

    I bought Pro and spent an immensely frustrating 90 minutes trying to edit (trim) a movie. The editing sliders (begin and end markers) wouldn't show up and I could not select parts of the movie. Why not? Pro won't edit MPEGs! The problem was only solved when I exported and reopened the video as an AVI.

    The user manual and online help should make this point clear! Neither was helpful. They all assumed the markers were showing and didn't suggest solutions to their absence. A troubleshooting guide in the manual would be nice.

    reply to installation (on Mac)

    I too, have tried many times to make work. Today, at last, I was Successful. I had to play within the Utilities folders and the Preferences. I believe the "fix" was the association of the Preference with the program. Hope this works. (It's taken me a while.)

    Ignore the overall rating. QT Pro is a great product.

    For all those complaining that QT Pro doesn't do what you thought it would (import WMV files, for example), try reading the product specs before you buy next time.

    And for those having technical issues (i.e., where's my sound), a product review forum isn't the same as a product support forum. You really shouldn't rate a product until you've explored the remedies to your issues. It might even be a case of - *gasp* - user error. However, if all you can say is, "my sound doesn't play anymore," and can't explain why -- then you clearly haven't asked why. Next time try posting in Apple > Support > Discussions > Quicktime instead. There are a lot of nice users there that will help.

    In short, I've been using QT Pro for years. It's simply one of the most solid and versatile media apps out there. With over 55 media standards supported for importing, over 25 for exporting, nearly 20 video effects -- and the capacity for simple video editing and resizing -- what the heck more do you want for $29?

    Would I like it to do more? Sure. But for the price and quality of product, there is absolutely no better deal. Ignore the complaints, read the specs, and buy. It's worth every penny.

    By the way, for the WMV moaners out there, look into a product called Flip4Mac. It will add WMV compatibilty to QT. Product functionality levels range from free to $179. Wow, $179 dollars. How many codecs does F4M deal with again? Oh, that's right...1.

    Another $29 Later - MIDI Removed

    It used to be that I could go in to a MIDI file and change the instrument settings for each track. Not any more. I paid $29 just to have a capability taken away.

    7.2 is nothing but problems

    Apple needs to offer a way to step back to avoid these issues, or get to fixing this FAST. I can't even see the trailers in the Apple trailers section using safari. (Apple quicktime + Apple website + Apple browser and it won't work?) It makes no sense.

    Worst. Ever.

    This thing is confusing and worthless. QT 7 was great, why does Apple have to make it more confusing, less powerful and a lot more frustrating?
    iMovie is also absolutely terrible. Love the hardware, hate most of the software. I'm angry. And as usual, disappointed with their newest version.

    It does the Job

    At first I didnt like it too much. But you can make your ringtones on it. also you can record yourself from a regular camcorder and then send an email of the video message to your friends. (that works ok, sometimes the email will not go through.) But you can get a pretty good piture when formatting video for your cell phones. mp4 is the way to go. Other than that, they shouldn't be charging customers who already have the recent versions of quick time, at least give your customers some type of loyalty

    Very useful.

    QT Pro is very useful if you know what you are doing. It is not a magical or endless set of codecs. If QT can't play your files now buying QT Pro won't help. If you need help playing files in QT look at DivX for Mac, Flip4Mac, and etc.

    Still Using Despite Newer Versions

    Due to the limitations and annoying user interface of QuickTime 10, I have continued to use QuickTime 7 (standard and Pro) over the years. Unlike some reviews I've seen on here that state otherwise, QuickTime 7 will continue to work on Snow Leopard and Lion. QuickTime 7 was an optional install included on the Snow Leopard DVD. After installing Lion, simply insert your Snow Leopard DVD and look under Optional Installs to get the option to install QuickTime 7.

    I Like It

    QuickTime Pro 7 is a great upgrade from the standard QuickTime. This was my first time to go Pro, & I highly recommend it. The $30.00 price is worth it.

    I called Apple, placed my order, & instantly received my code via email! I was using Pro in no time!

    The editing tools are great! They're great for quick projects when I don't want to mess with iMovie. While I'll always use iMovie for doing my pro work, QuickTime is perfect for simple editing.

    It's so quick! The audio/video capabilities are easy to access & use.

    I love also now being able to download QuickTime movies from the net. It's nice to be able to finally archive these movies!

    Great product! Buy it today!

    Quick Time

    I didn't really like it because it crashed my computer 3 times! I wish I got a refund. :(

    I've used QT Pro for years (the same version), and find it extremely useful for video compression. I just had to buy it for work to encode streaming .MOVs & it does the job without a bunch of bells & whistles. It gives you more options than any of the free file conversion applications available.

    Another bummed customer!

    I also thought I could record the screen with the pro version. What a disappointment! Aside from that I can't figure out what the point of upgrading to pro is? It is not easy to figure out how to edit video in it. Waste of $30.

    Not Happy!

    I was disappointed with this program. I was able to edit my videos, but when I wanted to burn them to a DVD I just couldn't. Please advice.
