    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.

    Save yourself some trouble... listen to the others here

    • Written by from Hillsboro

    This morning, I read these reviews, but downloaded the program anyway. (I've usually had success when I've downloaded programs others have struggled with.)

    Being the positive person I am, and since it's usually only disgruntled buyers that post reviews, I made a mental note to come back and write a positive review after using the program.

    I wish I could.

    I'm trying to compress video files to Quicktime files that have a small file size but still look good. First, I produced my original video file (with another program) as an MPEG2, then tried to open it in Quicktime to convert it. Quicktime said it didn't recognize the MPEG2 file. (!)

    I then produced it with the other program as an AVI file. Upon trying to open it, Quicktime said I needed additional software. I was led to a web page which listed a dozen or so third-party providers for various plug-ins... but nowhere did it say which one of those many things I needed to download.

    Finally, I produced the original file with the other program as a Quicktime file (which was quite large), thinking certainly Quicktime could open and compress one of its own files.

    Not so. I could open the file, but couldn't change any of the export settings. And when I simply tried to export it with the default settings, it got hung on "initializing."

    (By the way, I've used the other program for many things and have never had a problem, so that's not the issue.)

    As one of the other reviewers said, I've already contacted my credit card company to put it in dispute and get my money back. Hassle I don't need.

    If you DO download this program, maybe you'll have better luck. But I strongly suggest you don't.

    converts to ipod movies perfectly

    • Written by from Willimantic

    i read all of the negative reviews, but really needed/wanted to convert movies taken of my kids, on my phone, as i'm going overseas in 36 hours and needed to do it all ASAP. I was very concerned that i would spend the $30 and get a lemon, as per reviews.

    However, i had absolutely no problems. Followed the instructions- made sure i had the correct version [7.5] by uninstalling whatever version i had previously. then followed prompts to register correctly.

    Opened up the videos taken with my phone, chose "export" from the File Menu, then chose "movie to ipod". whole process took about 5minutes, including the initial purchase, uninstalling and reinstalling quicktime, and converting the movies.

    don't know what all the hype is about. hope it stays working!

    No DV Capture

    • Written by from Independence

    Bought this product for its DV capture capabilities. Apple says "Capture Audio/Video... Use a FireWire camera to capture video footage and/or audio and quickly edit ..." (see /quicktime/pro). Ha! It doesn't do that! Everything is grayed out on the menus. Buried on the FAQ page is this note: "* QuickTime 7 Pro for Windows currently supports audio capture only." Thanks, Apple, for truthfulness in advertising -- NOT. QuickTime is coming off of my computer today; and I'll be contacting my credit card company, and disputing this charge.

    It's Great!

    • Written by from DECATUR

    What a bunch of loosers! You are rating QT negatively because you can't copy/xfer/convert your illegal, copyrighted material? Let me guess your age: 1?

    I use QT on Windows, mainly to quickly create movies from a series rendered still frames (outputted from 3ds max and/or After Effects). It works great.

    Fast and efficient on a dual core, using WinXP 32bit. Sure, I've heard that it doesn't work with 64bit systems on Windows. That's definitely a bummer.

    It works fast, and does a good job of creating movies for the web, or to watch it in the PC. Has lot's of output format and encoder options. Good help file.

    Doesn't allow saving of certain content. Buggy. Non-returnable

    • Written by from Jersey City

    I bought the program to grab a streaming quicktime home-movie so that I could send it to my mom. After playing with the software and recieving various odd error messages (3 different kinds!) I finally broke down and called technical support who informed me that QuickTime Pro can not save copyprotected works. Would have been nice if the software told you that the video was copyprotected rather than creating empty files. I wasted $30 on this non-returnable piece of software...

    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 worth owning

    • Written by from Gobles

    Complete waste of money. Spent the $30 thinking it would help with my IPOD, but found it worthless at converting my files, so I never used it for many months. Yesterday I finally found a use: the recorder to record tapes to mp4--then suddenly QuickTime crashed, no known reason, and now refuses to open. Don't bother with this incessant advertizing junk of software.

    Requires Quicktime 7 to view

    • Written by from Saint Peters

    That is the message I got when I was trying to view the Ipod touch tour video. I was surprised by this because I had purchased the Quicktime 7 Pro edition. Even though I re-downloaded the free Quicktime as suggested I did not get this video to play. I have registered it, opened the downloaded player I have on my computer, yet it doesn't compute that yes, indeed, I do have this product.

    I was not able to find any quick fixes on the apple website for this problem. I feel this has been a waste of money. I have been oggling this ipod touch for a while and I do believe I would have purchased one. However, I think I would like to purchase from a product line that is more user friendly.

    Quicktime pro not a good choice for windows!

    • Written by from Folsom

    You cant even export to mpeg2 the most common/compatible video format on the planet! It seems you can only convert quicktime files like .mov to other quicktime formats not accepted by windows. Worthless!

    Complete Waste-I suggest not purchasing

    • Written by from Havre

    I bought Pro to help make movies compatible with my iPod, and it did nothing of the sort. In fact, it wasn't any better than the regular, free Quick Time in any way. I sincerely regret having wasted $30 and they won't allow refunds or returns on it. I recommend that you seriously reconsider before purchasing this waste of software.

    Totally Bogus

    • Written by from Groton

    No audio track on exported file types!

    I have just dropped 30 bucks on this package... I have .MPG files from my camera, but after importing them into iPhoto, I can not export them into iMovie... I have to change the format to something iMovie likes... so I buy QTP...

    Sure QTP exports the video to 30 different file formats... only none of them have an audio track... and the answer seems to be buy another software package...
    Give me a large break.

    This problem has been around since 2005...

    I purchased this today, and it is one of the slowest softwares I have ever tried. Exporting video files so that I can watch it on my ipod, takes about...god knows how many hours. And to be honest I don't even think it works properly. It's just too much effort. My advice, don't bother with it. just watch videos on your computer.

    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.
