    Great but pay?

    • Written by

    I've always been a fan of the QuickTime player, Even in my Windows days, I know it's a great payer, but to pay for the extra features? Not really to sure I'd do that.

    Good but difficult

    • Written by from New Port Richey

    Although it's a good application and all, it can be quite difficult for the average user to use (especially with converting videos). There should be a few extra options (for example, PSP, iPod, PS3) so that the user doesn't have to manually find the right format that their device uses. I think Apple needs to work on that and, getting a few more codecs into the app (especially native inclusion of DivX, XviD and WMV, that would be great).

    It's Pretty Good

    • Written by from Newburgh

    I bought Quicktime and thought it would be another hard to use video viewer and editor. It worked really well in Leopard and Tiger before I upgraded. My only compliant was that whenever I wanted to convert video to a cell phone, I always head to get validation from my company that makes the phone. It isn't Apple's problem, but next time could you please integrate a validation program?

    No sound when you email it!

    I wish I could get my money back. I bought this to send videos of my daughter to friends and relatives, but the video has no sound when it is emailed.

    Media Pros Love Quicktime

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    Why are non-Media Professionals allowed to write reviews of software and hardware? If you are a non-Media Pro then your near sighted opinion of Mac hardware/software is about as valid as the notion of WMD's in Iraq. Quicktime is amazing and if you have a problem with it I highly recommend trying to use Windows Media Player, because it is a great deal more frustrating and out puts a lower grade of video.

    QuickTime Pro is the essential video tool.

    • Written by from BLACKSBURG

    When you buy QuickTime Pro, you get two different and useful tools: First, QuickTime Pro unlocks some CODECs (compression types) in other programs. The biggest, baddest video tools can access most good CODECs already and the free Perian CODEC installer gives you many more. Smaller video and audio tools need QuickTime unlocked to reach their full potential to export. The second thing purchasing QuickTime Pro does is turn the QuickTime Player into a sophisticated editing and export application. It offers basic jump cut (transitionless) editing and simply audio and video layering but it also gives you access to non-destructive layering, positioning, scaling, rotating, and controlling QuickTime compatible movies in a way that almost no other tool does. At $30 QuickTime Pro is the best money you can spend to increase your video capabilities. Read up though, most QuickTime Pro users only scratch the surface of what QuickTime Pro can do.

    Definitely useful, but maybe not $30 worth of useful

    • Written by from Owensboro

    This upgrade is worth paying for, but I feel it's only worth about half of what they are charging for it. I finally upgraded because I wanted to save playblasts from Maya and this was the easiest way I could find to do so. I also do a bit of light video editing occasionally and basically to record or save anything you have to have Pro. I will definitely use the Pro features, but it feels like at least some of the recording or saving functions should be free.

    Not worth it.

    • Written by from Redding

    If you are thinking of purchasing QuickTime 7 Pro, make sure you know exactly what comes in it and what you plan on using it for. When it says "capture video" it means from a webcam, and "save video from internet" it means a very limited amount of videos, aka not any video from the web.

    This is not what I paid for nor was it what I expected.

    Good for what is

    • Written by from Auburndale

    QuickTime Pro is a nice little video conversion tool with some minimal editing and effects capabilities, and that's it. For example, if you have some .dv files that you want to turn into something that you can watch on your iPod, this is the thing to get. If, on the other hand, you have camcorder footage and want to edit that, use iMovie. And if, heaven forfend, you need to synchronize sound and image using timecode info, you need Final Cut (I think.)

    I think Apple overhypes this product dreadfully. As I said, it's a good video conversion tool, not an all-in-one consumer video editing solution. Ironically, I believe pro video users end up needing QT Pro for various small tasks, while amateur video users can do without it.

    Another $29 Later - MIDI Removed

    • Written by from Redlands

    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.

    This product is the best. 100% worth the $30 by far. Especially great for podcasting... makes it very easy to edit right in QuickTime! Even better when used with GarageBand and iMovie! A must have upgrade!

    This registration key works fine.

    • Written by from Scottsdale

    I'm not sure most people understand what this is. Its NOT software. Its only a registration key, nothing more. What does it do? Lets you save Quicktime movies to a file from a web page. It also activates a few other odds-and-ends, but nothing to write home about. Is it overpriced, sure, but it does activate these added features. Nothing more. Nothing less.

    Bad Serial Numbers

    • Written by from Alexandria

    Some people are writing in saying that after purchasing QuickTime Pro and entering the serial number it doesn't work. It happened to me as well. Call Apple, get a refund, and purchase another serial number. Apparently they don't all work. The product is great though.

    After buying QT Pro for Mac, paying, registering and then opening QT movies, all the editing tools remain greyed-out and do not work. What a waste of $33!

    Easy, Powerful, Useful, (Did I say Easy?)

    • Written by from Modesto

    What can I say? It is rare that a product continues to live up to it's hype. This is a simple, yet extremely powerful software that has continued to lead it's competitors by example. I use it exclusively for both my home and business solutions. Ultimately all video will end up being shown using Quicktime. Way to go Apple!

    Great Product but....

    • Written by from Escanaba

    i purchased Quicktime 7 Pro for Windows and this software has been great for me so far. I had a few problems with it crashing on my Windows machine, but nothing major or that I wouldn't expect for Windows. Now that I have made the switch to the new iMac (my first Apple), you would think that my license could transfer to the Mac OS X, but Apple and their greedy accountants (no more so than Microsoft accountants) would like me to lay down more money for another copy to run on my iMac. Let's make the software available for both using the same key or at least give me a discount. Greed is what is drove me from Windows please Apple don't follow Microsoft's example.

    It is the greatest multimedia devepment & editing software around

    it's good but should not charge us

    • Written by

    It is a good basic-editing player. It does all the things you'll expect it to, extract audio(which will be useful with the new iMovie as iMovie doesn't do that anymore), trim videos and more. But isn't it too selfish for Apple to charge people for even a full screen video player? of course, with quicklook and frontrow, we don't need to buy the software merely for its fullscreen function
