    No excuses for upgrade keys that fail to work

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    Well, I've jumped through all the hoops, purchased TWO copies of the software, talked to three Apple techs, and they still can't get my PRO upgrade keys to work.

    One tech said something about "You must have a bad key" Well what the heck is a bad key? This product should WORK, immediately, no excuses, no time-wasting phone calls.

    How utterly unlike Apple.
    And I still haven't gotten my money back.

    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.

    Use it all the time - Never Fails Me

    • Written by from Belleville

    Quicktime 7.0 Pro is a terrific product. In fact, I have it on both my P.C. and my Mac Mini. I couldn't live without it. [Although I had to shell out for each, I still think it is worth it]

    I use the export feature all the time to compress using the H.264 compression codec. If you are not sure how to do this, check out Macbreak.com -- there is a very good segment on exporting and compressing using Quicktime Pro 7.

    The last point is when you view videos on the web through google there is an option to download video to a video ipod. Guess what the engine is for this? - - You guessed it - Quicktime.

    Enough said.

    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).

    not worth $30

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    the only reason why i bought pro, is because i thought that it would accept all movie files.. but IT DOESN'T!!!! You could probably only watch 70% of the movies that you want to dowload!!! NOT WORTH 30 dollars.. i feel ripped =( ..at least i can put my movies into full screen now..

    A Short Summary of QuickTime 7 Pro

    • Written by from Sunnyvale

    In all, this is an excellent product which reflects Apple's personality. The reason for it's low raiting are because of complainers on these comments that say their QuickTime 6 Pro was wiped out with QT7.

    Hello guys? What did you UPDATE for? Logic, folks: when you are installing QT7, it uses LOGIC to think: huumm, this user want's to UPGRADE. How in land sakes will the computer know you want to install it WITHOUT removing QT6 Pro.

    However, I still agree at the lack of functionality with different video and audio formats, especially with the DVD format. Additionally, the price is just a little bit too high. Therefore, it gets four stars.

    Don't waste your money

    • Written by from kansas city

    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.

    I Like It

    • Written by from Hot Springs

    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!

    Video Formats

    • Written by from Lewisburg

    Quicktime is a fine product. It's easy to use, easy to set up, and most of the time just plain works. Awesome! But, the bad news is... quicktime will not play all the videos out there on the internet. Get your game together guys, i want to be able to watch anything i want, not just a handfull of proprietary formats.

    So much for so little

    • Written by from Greenbrae

    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.

    Great product, slight registration problem

    • Written by from Ponte Vedra Beach

    One of the problems I had and I'm sure a bunch of others are having as well is that Quicktime won't accept your code. In my case this was because I put a different name than who it was billed to, and it took it as "invalid". Make sure you register your Quicktime Pro to the same name as it was billed to––As well as the code, of course––, and it should work fine.

    It's a great product, and I finally upgraded. I had Pro with Quicktime 6 and then didn't get QTPro for a while, but now I finally did, and it works fine =]

    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.)

    Great Product, One Caveat

    • Written by from Olivette

    QuickTime Pro is great set of tools for a very reasonable price. Using it requires a bit of imagination and ingenuity, but if you have no technical chops you may not be in the right place if you're trying to create video.

    The one annoying gotcha about QuickTime Pro is that it dies with any whole number version upgrade. For example, my copy of QuickTime 6 Pro went away forever once I upgraded to QuickTime 7, and I had to buy it all over again. It's only $30, but jeeze! Add to that the fact that whenever QuickTime 8 comes out they will be dunning you to upgrade all the time and probably not mention very loudly that your Pro capabilities are about to irretrievably go away if you do it.
