    Low quality, last Apple purchase

    • Written by from Duluth

    Wanted to dump DV into HIGH quality files for archiving family videos -not for creating more rubble to put on the Web at low bandwidth or to display on a 2-inch screen, which is apparently what this is really for. Picked QuickTime in part because one camera I have defaults to saving in that format, plus all the hype about H.263 or whatever on the Apple site. Read a few reviews, thought it was a safe $30. WRONG!! The imports it saved are low-quality, and the Quicktime player made jaggie low quality junk of files I'd done elsewhere. You know that it's bad when the free Microsoft product operates better and displays the results better. Of course there's no satisfaction guarantee. So much for warm fuzzy cutesie Apple. They took my money and ran laughing. Won't make that mistake again --and will pass the word, I promise!

    No worries exporting to AVI works well.

    • Written by from Camp Hill

    For the novice computer user, they may have difficulty exporting a .MOV file to .AVI. But for anyone who is familiar with a computer and can change a few default settings AVI can be created while still keeping the high quality content as seen in a Quicktime .MOV file. You just need to change your export options to BEST, which is zero compression, which equals zero degradation.

    Okay but not great

    • Written by from Tivoli

    I purchased this product to export .mov files to .avi files so I could use them. It does do it BUT the quality isn't great. After playing with the quality settings in the export window, I was able to improve the quality but it still isn't great. I will use them with this project as it doesn't need to be great but if you need high quality this isn't the product for you. Just in case you're wondering the videos in the .mov format when viewed in quicktime were good quality just not after being exported to AVI.

    now after reading reviews I have to worry about it crashing itunes. Oh well I may have to update this if that happens.

    Conversion to .mpeg or .avi doesn't work.

    • Written by from chandler

    The only purpose for my buying this worthless product was to convert .m4v to other formats which will work on Windows. It absolutely positively 100% cannot do this. Don't waste your money.

    stop whining!

    • Written by from Valrico

    working on a Vista HP dual core:
    Project: Show reel for my video work

    All day I have been dealing with A.E.'s codec issues. Finally broke down and bought the upgrade after hours of false workarounds. Was scared away at first by the bad reviews but it appears there are an abundant sum of clueless users. All my exports have worked smoothly, as well as imports. Speed I can not say as my files are 1080p trasfers to PNG images at 45 FPS. Love this product and wish I had bit the bullet 4 hours ago.

    Works Great!

    • Written by from Arlington

    Despite the scare of many 1-star reviews, I had no problems with QuickTime Pro. It took about 30 minutes to: install access code onto Vista laptap (Core2 Duo), edit a QuickTime clip taken with my camera, export to AVI, and insert it into a PowerPoint show. Controls were adequate, fast conversion with status indicator, equivalent file sizes (~18 MB) and excellent quality! Everything worked great! Only issue was that MS would not accept MPEG-4, so I went instead with the AVI. Obviously, I can't guarantee it for other formats or applications, but it does everything I need quite well.

    You have to know what you are doing! I saved an audio file from the internet "as a source" and I can't get it to my itunes library. I can't even get Quick time to play it. If you are there (KM from Calgary), have pity and help me - if that's possible.

    Formatting Issues

    • Written by

    I recently purchased a new Pansonic DMC-FZ28 super-zoom Lumix camera whose software came bundled with basic Quiktime and which I up-dated to 7 Pro so I could capture still frames from the HD movies. What frustration. Following the.mov file capture sequence provided in the on-line manual, I attempted to save the frame(s)as a JPEG file but the program would always hangup when it came to the final step of choosing a compression type. It would then display an "encounterd error" message and close. No matter what I tried I have yet to be able to capture or display any movie frames using this program.

    It simply does not work. Do not pay for Pro. Stick with the free player!

    • Written by from New Windsor

    I bought this product to convert my .mov files to (any) other format so that they would be useful. Although this product claims that it will easily convert one file format to another, it doesn't. It returns an error about 70% into the conversion. It does this for all input and output files I feed it with every combination of settings I have tried. I am not going to bother contacting customer service or tech support. I know a lot about video and enough to know that it is the product, not the user, that is at fault. I gambled on Apple, I lost.

    What's everybody's problem??

    • Written by from Calgary

    QT Pro 7 Win works great. The people rating 1 star have problems with other things, not QT. LS in Rockville--it's incompatible codecs--WMM won't accept QT codecs. Convert to .wmv and you'll be fine. DE in Warminster--you're using cellphone video. You can't make hi-quality vid from a low-quality source. GS in Juneau--make a new shortcut! JH--it's a freakin' media player! You want video editing for $30.00?? You can actually do a lot in QT Pro, but you have to have at least half a clue about video before you start.

    I am not happy.

    • Written by from rockville

    It only converted some of my MOV files to .avi files. I kept getting i/O error. I cut the videos to be shorter to see if they were too long. but that didnt work. my videos wernt even long. just over a minute in length. I called every support number apple gave me to help and NO ONE could help me. All I wanted to do was make a simple video on Windows Movie Maker. I am very upset with them and disappointed in this product. Not worth the price... at all!

    QuickTime 7 Pro for Windows

    • Written by from Warminster

    DON'T BUY IT!! Alls I wanted to do was convert my *.3g2 files from my cell phone to .mpg and .avi files, which this product does. But the quality if AWEFUL!! I can barely make out the faces of my kids on the exported files. What a waste, I wish I would have taken the advice of all the other unhappy people. This turns me off to Apple big time.

    Your FAQs haven't helped so this is my request for QuickTime Pro help

    • Written by from Juneau

    I've had Quick Time on my personal computer for years, and am very familiar with it's strengths and weaknesses. In the past couple of days I've re-installed, upgraded, and been through all the trouble-shooting tips and tricks, and still no banana. It will not start when I click the shortcut on my Windows desktop. I would have given it zero stars if I could be sure it would accurately reflect my thinking on a one to five scale.

    Very Disatisfied

    • Written by from Vestal

    Expecting to have access to a separate video creating application I was disappointed to realize that QuickTime Pro simply opens up additional options in the QuickTime Player. The video creating options are weak at most and the creation process is extremely slow. Also, during the creation process there is NO progress indicator so all you get is a blank screen for extremely long periods. I have the latest high end system and the performance is completely unacceptable. This was an absolute waste of $30. Wish I could return the product but that option is not offered. If your looking for a video creating software look elsewhere.

    No good for converting to mp3 audio files

    • Written by from Malton

    I read the poor reviews of this product but ignored them because all I wanted was something to convert my daughter's Mpeg4 format music on her phone to mp3 files for her mp3 player. The promotional blurb says " Export to over a dozen different video and audio formats." but doesn't actually tell you what those formats are. You can convert to "wav" or ".au" but not mp3. I have just wasted £20 and would like it back please.

    Basic features, poor implementation

    • Written by from Eugene

    First I don't think people should have to buy Pro to go fullscreen and I think it's lame of apple to charge for such a simple feature. After giving in and paying 30 bucks for a feature every other free player comes with, I found that it doesn't even work with 2 monitors on WinXP. No matter what monitor the QuickTime player is on, it will go full screen on whatever the primary display is.

    I respect Apple as a company and think they normally do a good job thinking about their customers experience. But this is probably their most commonly used application that also promotes their other businesses (iTunes). I see no reason why their users should pay for something as simple as fullscreen. The other features like being able to save a MOV, fine.. that makes a bit more sense.. but not fullscreen and especially not a buggy fullscreen. I don't like being spat in the face. Stop being lame Apple, make fullscreen a free feature and _fix_ it.

    QT Pro is a good deal

    • Written by

    I bothered to make an account to relate that QT Pro is a darn good buy. It isn't for pirating software or making illegal copies - contact the Cult of the Dead Cow for that stuff.

    I needed it to convert, reliably, some cell phone and other formats to 'standard' files. For $30, this is *so* much better than Prism or some of the other flaky shareware programs that cost upwards of $70 or more to unlock.

    It is really nice clicking on an export and knowing that a readable file will be spit out. Go with the pros.
