    Quicktime is excellent

    • Written by from San Clemente

    Quicktime player is an excellent program for Mac. I convert and view videos on it. I don't know much about it for PCs, but the crashes on PCs are probably because it is a PC.... Macs are much better than PCs.

    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.

    Crashed my computer too

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Same as the writer of 'worthless' (may 25 2006), when I tried to convert an AVI file to MOV, my computer crashed significantly. The machine went off, and started beeping. The beeping did not even stop when I removed the power cord - had to wait a little longer. It was terrifying.

    I hope Apple gives me my money back.

    Every version of QuickTime Pro I have used generates a buffer overrun when I attempt to export. This is an OLD error that I have reported to Apple 1001 times over YEARS. It happens on every computer I own. The current version also won't PLAY any MOVs I create with my Kodak or Nikon digital cameras. It actually blue screens XP. Total crash and burn. JUNK.

    I've purchased this tool in order to convert quicktime format .mov to MPEG4.

    The application crashes (every time) during conversion. I feel I've been ripped off. I cannot believe that a company like Apple has the gaul to sell a product that does not work.

    I feel ripped off.

    Quicktime 7 & iTunes.

    • Written by from Sudbury

    If you're using Windows 64bit Edition, don't bother downloading this hugely buggy software!!!! I've paid for the Pro key and was already on version 7 of the Quicktime Player, but when installing the latest update, version 7.1, it errored out at the end and didin't install properly...so much that the software can't properly be uninstalled and for me to re-install version 7.0 back in.!!!

    DON'T INSTALL VERSION 7.1 ON WINDOWS 64bit Edition!!!!

    ...and why oh why do they bundled the iTunes software with the Player??!!! For business users, who needs iTunes??!!! Please, please Apple give us just Quicktime on its own!!!!

    Overall rating of Quicktime 7.1 & iTunes:
    RAP with a capital C!!

    Why does this software not do what is advertised for PC users. I cannot convert uncompressed or PAL AVI without a buffer over run and then the software crashing. I purchased this software for a critical job. Unfortunately the video production folk I'm dealing with are MAC only & need the files to be converted to MOV. I am now totally scuppered. The gap ever widens....

    Converting to iPod for idiots

    • Written by from Whistler

    I have read plenty of reviews saying that when they convert a video to iPod format they don't get any sound.

    well heres how to do it: first export the video to iPod, now convert it again under the same name, in the same folder, but this time select "sound to Wave" instead of iPod. then select both files at once and drag them to iTunes.

    I hope this will help the image of Quicktime for those who have bought it or are going to purchase it.

    Be prepared as this is the error you will see when you try to use File > Export in Quicktime 7 Pro. I am waiting for a fix for this software (Windows version) before I ever consider buying anything from Apple ever again.

    quicktime rules

    • Written by from new york

    I keep reading these bad reviews about quicktime saying that they can't use it or it costs too much. quicktime 7 pro is so easy to install and use and it is much cheaper than any other video editing software I have seen out there. 37.99 CND is cheap even for just the H.264 codec. You can also download the quicktime broadcaster for free and send live video feed to anyone.

    Video iPod Users, Take Note!

    • Written by from Lawrenceville

    Not Required according to Apple Tech Support! Basic QuickTime SHOULD do the conversion. Neither does.

    Windows users can expect the program to crash when trying to convert .avi and even .mp4 files for transfer to your iPod. The only videos not susceptible to this problem are those purchased from the iTunes Store.

    After spending nearly 2 hours with AppleCare trying to resolve the now infamous "Buffer Overrun" issue with no success, I regret having invested $30 for the upgrade as well as $60 for the (albeit polite, yet completely ineffectual) extension of my Tech Support.

    Apple should correct this incompatibility AND notify every owner of a Video iPod that a complimentary fix has been developed.

    can use improvement, but pretty good

    • Written by from Sonoma

    Compression is high and high quality for .mov and .m4v. The speed is darned slow, but worth it for the decent quality and small file size.

    Compression for other formats seems low quality.

    Take this with a grain of salt as I have only been working with the program for a day.

    Hi, I have found QuickTime to be the only player that works for me. I use a dial up connection and QuickTime adj. for this and after forever I can hear the song I LINKED to completely without annoying buffer every 5 sec. Apple is intuitive but you need to utilize the knowledge base sites to fix problems. I know XP users like me should know there are problems with multiple applications of the same type and not just apple.
    First you need to get QuickTime working for you OK. My problem was in an upgrade. You have to utilize Microsoft uninstaller download! Check it out as I have removed a lot have old downloads with this. Get it~ not the program but the file CPU kept to install it!
    Get real! us PC users have been fighting problems like this before only now it is APPLE LOL.
    I already read duplicate negs so the rating may reflect frustration.
    I would after solving problems with QuickTime upgrade to pro. $30.00 what a bunch of losers. BUT it should have been included in the vid iPod, now that I have a decent notebook gig of ram for apps I might upgrade. Lets hope for continued continuity between Apple and Microsoft

    You have to know what extra files to download

    • Written by

    I have read many reviews saying this program doesn't work-1st you have to go in & set up the files you want to use with it + there are new types of files being written all the time in that case you have to search the net & locate a download for that type of file, e.g., icm.xvid, didn't work until I downloaded the file it needed & then it worked fine. But it was the same way with all the other programs-as programmers write in new code new downloads have to be found that will play those new files. Mine works fine, I just had to figure it out & I'm no programmer. It works fine on XP.

    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.
