    Good upgrade.. with a hitch

    • Written by from Overland Park

    The product seems to be good where I have tried it. I am, however, somewhat dissapointed with the update path. As a registered owner of Quicktime pro 6, I expected at least a discount on the purchase of Quicktime Pro 7, but it looks like you have to purchase the whole thing over again...

    ITunes & QT Pro

    • Written by

    I build my PC with Win Vista Ultimate. After installing ITunes my Win Experience index downgraded from a 5.1 to 4.0. ITunes is crashing/freezing (Not often with out QT Pro. I believe software geeks output is good, but it's not properly tested before distribution due to the high demamd of cyberg electronic. So if you are not a Pro don get it. It does work but is not friendly!

    Not what I expected...

    • Written by from Mount Airy

    The general discription of this product leads you to believe that it is professional software for that lets you do more with your media. It is just that, but it has A LOT of flaws. First, the interface and menus are so confusing that it makes it nearly impossible to get anything done. Also, in there are glitches in the software. In the movie properties menu, in visual settings, the whole transormation option is completely useless. When trying to change the offset or size, nothing happens, unless you click "preserve aspect ratio about 3 times. Then, when you exit the menu, your changes reset about every other time. The export menu is okay, but being able to only use 1 effect per movie is extremely lame. Also, the formats that you can convert to and from are not formats that people us or want to change in any way. The audio recorder gives me errors, so that is also useless. The only good feature is its ability to turn text into chapter marks. This software seems like is was quickly and sloppily ported to windows. Basically, if you own mac this software is great. If you don't own a mac, don't waste your time or money.

    Quick TIme 7 Pro

    • Written by from Chicago

    It's a wonderfull tool but should be something provided when you buy the new ipods that also play dvd/movies.

    This is a hidden/extra cost to you when it should not be.

    The price/cost of my wife's birthday present was actually $330.00 and not $300.00 because I had to buy QuickTime 7 Pro ($30.00) to be able to play movies on the Ipod.

    good product, bad policy

    • Written by from Mountain View

    Dear Apple: you are acting more and more like Real Networks and MS. Why must I install iTunes before QT will even download (per Tech Support and Apple Store instructions)?

    Personally, I don't like loading s/w I don't use but apparently I have no choice. Please play clean in the future... thx !!

    Never would work

    • Written by from NORTH HILLS

    After downloading I was unable to view any Quicktime movie trailers. Trouble-shooting got me no positive results. Sent e-mails to Apple Support and recieved no response. This was probably all an oversight and likely that some conflict in my XP based PC was the problem, Still waiting to hear from you Apple, you make great products , that is when you can get them to work?

    Its Kinda Good and Kinda Bad...

    • Written by from Fellsmere

    QuickTime has many cool features that make it stand out but it also has some features that are not good... like Speed! Many people want a fast and accurate converter to convert thier videos very fast and also very good, QuickTime is good in Quality but very very slow sometimes... Apple should make QuickTime for PC users be compatible with Hardware Components to make it fast like ATI or NVIDIA. I think QuickTime is going to be very good, we just have to give apple some time to think of the things that quicktime needs. For People who are not sure if you should buy or not, Check out the other peoples Reviews and see what they have to say or just learn for yourself in the Quicktime website.

    Useful extras with the upgrade, but expensive

    • Written by from Dallas

    I had QT 7 then upgraded to Pro, paying the price shown, but when activating it I had issues with it accepting my serial number.

    QT Pro is good if you need to save files, which is not an option with the regular QT.....but, if you want the extras, you have to pay. If they want people to use Quicktime more than Windows Media, then they should stop charging people just so they can view a video. It's a scam just like all Internet stuff. They get you used to QT, then once you are comfortable with it, they start charging......GRRRR....doesn't Apple have enough money already? Good product, but watch out for the charges to get extra stuff...which comes standard on Windows Media Players.

    Works better on the Mac

    • Written by from Boerne

    I have QuickTime 7 Pro for both Windows XP and the Mac. So far it has been very stable on OS X. However, on Windows XP (both Pro and Home) it crashes during playback of mpeg 4 videos if I go in or out of full screen mode. This happens fairly regularly on two different Windows XP machines.

    I've had better.

    • Written by

    First of all, $29 is really affordable for editing software, so that's a plus for Quicktime Pro, unfortunately I've had better video quality results with various freeware downloads.(They just didn't contain the amount of import/export formats as quicktime does)

    A big issue for me is video quality, when I export a video to an image sequence (TGA, TIFF) the quality is sub-par. There are very limited options when exporting, and even with no compression turned on, the result is unacceptable.

    Quicktime is great if you just want to export files to different formats, quickly cut and edit videos and image quality isn't a huge issue for you. However, there are free software products out there that have better results.

    Does what I need.

    • Written by from grass valley

    I was a bit leary about QT Pro after reading the overwhemingly negative reviews. I need QT Pro strictly for compressing QTRef. movies from my editing system and it seems to do a good job at it. Not as good as Sorensen Squeeze but it's a tenth of the price...
    I was put off by the itunes baggage that comes with it. I stopped downloading once because I thought I had the wrong product. Apple would be better off bundling that stuff somewhere else.

    This isnt as bad as they say

    • Written by from Torrington

    If you are getting this to convert some of your videos to iPod format, its really not that bad as long as you follow the directions they give you. but if your using this as a media player, its terrible. it lags and will freeze up your computer. (and this is a good comp im running it on) youd be better off going and downloading some cheap player you find off of google

    Pros & Cons (But It Worked...Barely)

    • Written by from Newington

    I was close to not buying this because I read all of the negative reviews, but it worked fine for me.

    There are definitely pros and cons to this program. It's not as great as Apple claims, but it does barely do what they claim is does.


    I found the instructions very easy to understand, and I had the whole setup process complete in under 10 minutes.

    I only used the program to put videos on my iPod, and it worked like a charm. I only downloaded quicktime files, so I can't say how it worked for other formats, but for putting quicktime movie trailers on the iPod, it worked just fine.


    That being said, I must say that it is ridiculously over-priced and should have been included with the purchase of a $300 iPod in the first place. The only other problem is the speed to convert a song to the correct format to put it on the iPod. For a 2 minute movie trailer, it took about 5-10 minutes to convert the movie. If you were adding bigger files, plan on giving it plenty of time.

    Overall, 3/5 stars for price and slowness, but it barely does what Apple claims it will do, so I'd say buy it if you want to get quicktime format movies on your video iPod.

    Do NOT Buy, this application still need work.

    • Written by from phoenix

    This is truely a great application, but for most computer it will not work. I hate to say this since apple is such a fine company, but it still needs work. The buffer may not always pick up the information that you need for your media. I have tried using this player to run on my companies servers, and it crashed our systems because it couldn't pick up data fast enough. And we have a T3 connection. If you really want a top of the line media player, just wait until QT8 HIGH DEFINITION is up for download.

    Quick Time Pro 7.7.1

    • Written by from Tulsa

    For what I'm doing QT Pro 7 is ok. Giving 3 stars.
    This is more of a amateur tool.
    Not a Pro tool as one may imagine that it would be. It could be improved if Apple ever decides to do so.
    Works good for me although It would be nice "in editing" if you could precisley remove the frame you want to remove from your movie.
    If your looking for a product that is fine tuned and precise, keep looking...

    Too awkward to handle in XP Windows

    • Written by

    Admitedly I am still new to Quicktime Pro. Yet to get going with it. Full screen is too long and blocks your task bar. This may be just a tweek somewhere.Hotkey is my (escape) from that.This is still early, to be fair.
    It seems with most players today you will need a licence to drive it.This one is no different.What happened to plug and play?
