    I never thought I would regret my first ever purchase from Apple!!

    • Written by

    Just paid £20.00 to upgrade QT7 to PRO version. Yet I still cannot find the option that lets me burn ".mov" movie clips to DVD.

    What a waste of money - even if it's just £20.00.

    Ever since Microsoft brought out their MS-DOS in 1980s, I have been hooked on their technologies through thick and thin (I am an IT Administrator for Bluechip company); and throughout this period, I have resisted the temptation to buy into the Apple brand - except the freely available QT player. And today, my faith has been strengthened in Microsoft's Windows technologies.

    We all need a reality check every now and then.

    QT7 Pro - don't waste your money.

    This is the biggest waste of money I have ever spent!!!!!

    • Written by from Southgate

    If you are a PC user, buy something else!!! I know it's my fault for buying something made by Apple for my PC, but this is the complete garbage!!! The PRO version does nothing more than the free Microsoft software that came with my PC so what's the point? It doesn't record video on PCs, only Macs. It locks up and doesn't display videos correctly. It forgets that there is an audio track included in some video files. There is nothing on Apple's website that offers any kind of helpful information. WHAT A WASTE!!!

    Will not register from quicktime 7 to quicktime pro

    • Written by from Long Beach

    Followed all the directions. The control panel says "quicktime pro". My registration code is valid, yet after 30 dollars and 3 hours of fiddling with it I still cannot play a dvd! By the way, I am an IT manager for a major corporation!

    Cannot convert all files

    • Written by from Lafayette

    I have both Mac and PCs, captured footage on an iMac at school using Final Cut Pro 7. Found out that files captured in Final Cut are converted with AIC (apple intermediate codec) which can ONLY be read on Macs that have Final Cut installed; even my Macbook couldn't read it but thought it was cause my macbook was old so I purchased QTPro7 for PC (because my HP is brand new) so it could convert .MOV files to .AVI files but it doesn't work.

    I called support and got transferred a couple of times but finally spoke to someone helpful that explained it to me and I was refunded my money. DON'T buy if you are trying to convert .mov to .avi captured in Final Cut!! The only way to resolve that issue is to export from Final Cut as a quicktime conversion compression. Wish someone had told me this before I spent hours figuring it out :(

    Negative 5

    • Written by from Leesburg

    The only good thing about this program is that it does export a mov file to something that can be edited with a windows based product. AVI is your only option though. The other downfall, is if the video is 2 hours long, and you want to keep the integrity of the video the same, there is no acceleration speed. It exports at 1:1 speed. You cannot apply credit or fade-in screens. You cannot add introductions. Basically, everything the online representative told me was a lie, except the fact that it will convert the file to something I can use with some real editing software.

    Lower than 1

    • Written by from Glendale

    If there was a score lower than 1, I would give it to QT 7. Yes, I was able to select a portion of the movie, copy it, and paste it into another movie. But no matter how many times I click or Save or Save As, it doesn't. Totally worthless.

    Based on what I read about this product in the promotional sections, I assumed it would allow me to do some video editing. But it allows the user to basically do almost nothing. Had I known how worthless QT PRO was, I definitely wouldn't have wasted $29.99. I should have put the thirty bucks toward a decent video editing software. Lesson learned, I guess.

    Extremely Bad Experience

    • Written by from Royersford

    I can't tell you how difficult and frustrating this experience was. Besides being unbelievably SLOW, it simply didn't work. I would try to delete a few second of a video and it would delete minutes. I ended up downloading free software. $30 down the drain.

    I read the reviews. Some were good, but most of them were bad. I bought Quick Time Pro based on the good reviews. THIS WAS A TERRIBLE MISTAKE! It doesn't work right and it messes up my videos and sometimes deletes them. All my hard work, GONE. Then when I had an update, Quick Time tried to make me buy it AGAIN! Luckily I was smart not to. I can't believe awesome Apple would make this. Please, don't waste your money or your time. Do NOT base your decision on the good reviews like I did, because I regret it.

    $30 Mistake

    • Written by from North Hollywood

    Cannot play .mov files from a Sony EX-1. Other than viewing and editing, I have no other use for this product. Useless. I don't recommend. Waste of money.

    Not so great

    • Written by from Kihei

    I bought the previous version, used it about 3 times and now must buy again to keep up with version changes. I wish I could say something to Apple, but I'm reduced to venting my anger in a subdued review which will be read by people with no interest in my petty problem. All I can do is not buy Pro again. "Ouch!!" says Apple. "Who threw that pinto bean at me?"

    Cannot even open and MOD and MPEG file.

    • Written by from Morris

    I think I just wasted $30 with QuickTime 7 Pro. I bought it with the intention of editing files from my JVC video camera on my pc (Vista). The format for JVC video is MOD and when I tried to open a video in QuickTime, I got the error message 2048, telling me it was a file that QuickTime doesn't understand.

    OK - so I then converted the MOD to MPEG, which was the only format I could convert the file to and, when I tried to open the files, got the same message.

    What a waste of $30 - glad it wasn't more.

    Awful - Serious Issues

    • Written by from Harvard

    The MOV files from my iPhone were rotated 90 degrees and since the size for 30 second clip is 45 MB I need to convert these to MP4 for smaller size I could pass around. Unfortunately when I exported MOV files to MP4, in QT Pro, the progress bar would display for a few seconds and then it and the QT main windows would freeze. I noticed the conversion continued (while the screen was frozen) and eventually completed. Unfortunately QT Pro can't seem to make an output with the correct aspect ratio. The output does not take into account the rotation and the result is a flattened image. Pretty poor piece of software for $30. This piece of junk should be rewritten by the good programmers at Apple instead of the new hires. Also, they should not charge at all for basic conversion and aspect ratio, and image rotation. What a rip-off.

    One of the worst products for Windows

    • Written by from Atlanta

    Not only does Quicktime facilitate the installation of server TSRs that are able to re-activate themselves if forced to quit from the Task Manager, and not only has my computer historically received more errors from Quicktime than any other program, but it also is bulky, buggy, and a required evil if you own an ios device. It's hypocritical how Apple has taken a stand against Flash because of its admittedly poor performance on Mac, considering how miserable and useless Quicktime ends up being on Windows. If I could do without it, I would (and so would most Windows users). Bad quality period.

    What a mess

    • Written by

    Downloaded QT7. Then bought Pro license. Edited a .MOV file and exported for Web. Worked great the first time. After that, same steps produced video and audio outputs BUT audio failed to play. Tried everything over the course of two evenings, including uninstall-reinstall. Now, I just want to cry. I guess "Pro" means "just once?" By the way, I can still load in my first successful output file array of desktop, cell, etc. mv4 files,etc and they play just fine... so my PC is not to blame.

    What a mess. It really appears QT7 was attacked by a virus or something that disabled audio playback on exported for web files. I want to cry myself to sleep. So close... yet so far.

    Should have read reviews

    I bought this product because I thought I could trust Apple to do what it says.I have numerous video from a camcorder (which it says the program can handle) that I wish to clean up and make home moives. It said it would do this, along with being able to add music. It does not! I also wasted my money and I am very angery and disappointed, all I can do is vent!

    Do not buy this product.

    • Written by from SAN DIEGO

    I have owned every iPhone since the very first. I bought this product to 'enable" video correction to "de-rotate" videos which I had taken with my iPhone4. The download path is unclear and the tools which quicktime provides are technically weak and paradoxically difficult to use given what they do. Do not buy this product. It should be free and a simple "download now" button away from confusing you.
