    What is the use?

    • Written by from Coconut Creek

    I purchased this for use on my home PC (Windows XP). It does not do much more than Windows Movie Maker. This product should be free to anyone who has an iPod, iPhone, etc., if Apple wants to really "lock" people into their hardware products. Very unsatisfied with the cost.

    What is the point of Quick Time

    • Written by from Basingstoke

    I have been a register user of Quick Time Pro 7 since September 2005 and to be quite honest I can't see the point of it. Half the time it does not work as it should and the other half it quicker to use another product that is less sensitive to its file associations. On top of that you get more than you bargained for, iTunes which hijacks your media file associations and then is a devil to get rid of. Then to add insult to injury when you check for a Quick Time update all you get is a screen which asks you to purchase the latest version of Quick Time. I originally bought Quick Time to edit Quick Time files but to be honest it quicker and easier to convert to another format and then edit from there. Shame really but there you go.

    Converting .MOV to MPEG4

    • Written by

    The only reason I purchased QT Pro was to convert video files for my Palm Treo. This function produced very poor output. It was a waste of $30 and support was not available.

    My system also went unstable after QT Pro installation.

    Pathetic and Useless

    • Written by from Farmington Hills

    Possibly the worst piece of software I've ever purchased. Crashes constantly. Interface completely unintuitive. Very limited functionality. Complete waste of $30 - I wish I'd believed the reviews.

    This is a ripoff

    • Written by from San Diego

    I paid $30.00 for Quicktime Pro. It worked OK for a few weeks until it crashed and would not let me use Itunes. Itunes told me to reinstall Quicktime. Now Quicktime Pro is gone along with my $30.00.

    just junk for pc

    • Written by from West Bountiful

    I couldn't get QT Pro to work on my windows xp pro. It doesn't read .avi files (or it just didn't record right). It took almost an hour to convert the file and the output file was blank and there was no sound even though the timer was counting like it was playing a movie. To add insult to the whole thing I wasted $30 buying this junk.

    absolute garbage

    • Written by from DEWSBURY

    as a very unknowlegeable user i find this programme absolute garbage. It says on the box it will accept AVI files but every avi file i have tried loading it tells me it wont and then points me to a website that is supposed to help unkowledgeable me but instead presents me with an endless list of choices for which i have no background information to help me choose. spent 30 quid and ended up bininng it, avoid at all costs unless you have a good idea what youre doing.

    I wanted to put together a simple slideshow. The advertising says you can do it. There is a tutorial. So, silly me, I forked over $30. And you can't do a slideshow, or at least you certainly can't do it even if you follow EXACTLY what they say in the tutorial. Maybe there's a way, I'll keep looking, but ignore the tutorial, and ignore EVERYTHING Apple says about its products.

    Just to sweeten the deal you can't do anything at all with WMV format, the most common format on the internet, without buying still more software, and having been burned once I'm not about to spend more money trying to make it work.

    Stay away.

    Don't bother - can't do all it says it can

    • Written by from Nepean

    Pay to play and get nothing in return. QuickTime does not have all the codex to play all the movie types it claims it can but instead, encourages you to go to "third party" partners and get their products to complete the set (usually costing more money). Not worth it at all. User manual does not provide much help either and no direct support except these reviews and blogs.

    Quick time pro

    • Written by from ypsilanti

    VERY DISAPOINTED WITH THIS PRODUCT, WASTE OF MONEY.I downloaded this product for my Ipod in order to watch movies, either I am an idiot or the application failed, I can not download a single movie, I thought it would be easier than this. My impression was once downloaded, it would be a one step process;NOT.

    Rotten Apple

    • Written by from Surbiton

    I never thought I will ever say this about a Apple product, despite all the warnings and bad reviews. But this is a poor package, doesn’t say what it says on the tin. Doesn't do what Aplle claims it to do. It’s useless other than viewing video clips. Says it can convert files into various formats. What it doesn’t mention is that most of those formats are Apple based products. I wasted my money. Should have listened to the other reviews!

    I would prefer not to give it any star ratings, but the system doesn't allow you not to rate (no stars from me)

    What a waste of money

    • Written by from Ocean Springs

    I can't believe this program doesn't recognize MPEG's or DVD files. But wait! If I pay an additional 20 bucks I can buy a plug-in to recognize MPEG's. This is the sort of thing I would expect from Microsoft, not Apple.

    Waste of money.

    • Written by from excelsior

    I purchased QT7 and I can't believe that something that is supposed to help is so horrible. Nothing but problems getting it installed. I got so frustrated I gave up. While I was burning a DVD with Nero software I purchased awhile back I found it is set up to convert windows media to MPEG-4 with no hassle. Wish I would have know before I wasted my money.

    QuickTime 7 Pro actually does not recognize AVi files, Movie DVDs. I've spent 30$ for nothing. Bravo Apple, that's the way how to make money.

    This product is lame

    • Written by

    I have spent 3 hours trying to dump this QT product from my computer - trying to return to Windows Media 11. So far Quick time overrides my resets of the default setting and returns to open my MP3 and Mp4 downloads. Man QT is lame. Can anyone at Apple help me remove this invasive software so I can return to WMA?

    QuickTime Pro - beware!

    • Written by from Peterborough

    Bought Quicktime Pro for Windows (at a premium, as I am in Canada ?!), and it worked for a week, then stopped. Uninstalled, reinstalled. Hours of online searching. No luck. No support from Mac. Money goes down drain, can't get a refund.
