    Great Software

    • Written by from Mason

    Converting my home videos and movies to iPod, iPhone, MPEG4 and other formats was quick, easy and without hassles. The results look great. Importing and exporting image sequences is also a nice feature as was combining separate sound and movie tracks. Editing features are basic but they get the job done. To sum it up I was very impressed with QuickTime 7 Pro.

    Learn how it works

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I gave it a bad review a couple of days ago.. i couldn't transfer files or anything... however, after 2 days of frustration (and buying another one converter that it actually messes with the audio badly) i finally learned how the quicktime pro works... I am amazed with it and now I feel a little guilty for my bad review... if in doubt, just go for it.. it is worth its cost...

    Easy trimming

    • Written by from clackamas

    This just saved me about an hour of importing/exporting into iMovie just to trim 3 little clips for the web. I should have bought this a long time ago.

    Only Need One Trick Pony

    • Written by from Soldotna

    Final Cut and iMovie do all my editing. But for coding & embedding video clips on my website pages, QT Pro is 100x better than my Adobe Flash CS4. By selecting "Export for Web" QT Pro compresses and encodes the .mov file down to an incredibly small file (image 852x480) with nearly zero observable loss, even for HD and is much smaller file than the Flash version with same quality. But the most valuable feature is when this "Export" feature is selected, the program creates a new folder complete with the associated files and a sample Readme.html file that contains ALL the html code for inserting on your web page to play video clips ON the page without running Player externally for a standalone movie. For me, it paid for itself the first time I needed to create the code to embed the first video.

    Works Great!

    • Written by from Davis

    I bought this yesterday after contemplating the cost, because I really needed something that would convert movies taken with my Samsung NV11 (.avi) into .mov format, and this was the only thing I could find.

    Well, after converting my movies they seem brighter than before! It was definitely worth it!

    Great for Quick recordings!

    • Written by from Bakersfield

    Musicians and other artists, QT is terrific for quick recordings to send to project partners. I use it for all the usual stuff, too: file conversion, viewing content etc. But I haven't seen anyone mention the instant audio and video recording capability--for those who have camera and mic built in, especially. Then use Share (under file menu) to process file for email or whatever.

    Editing can get a bit technical, beyond simple cut and paste, but even us lay folk can do lots of useful and fun tasks with QuickTime. I appreciate it a lot! As do my bandmates and other musician friends.

    Don't make my mistake :(

    • Written by from Nacogdoches

    Quicktime is great for conversion of file formats. I've been using it to convert video files from my dark, dark days in the Windows wilderness.

    Quicktime the product gets 5 stars.

    However, I screwed up when I bought the product. Yes, MY error. I inadvertently purchased the Windows version. Wasn't paying attention, can't return it, lost $30.

    I took away a star because Apple has created different types of keys for the different Windows and OSX versions of Quicktime. I do not understand why this is necessary. I know it's my error that cost $30, but I don't see why it has to be this way.

    The moral is... LOOK BEFORE YOU BUY, don't be like me, lol.

    I use QuickTime because it plays movies full screen on the TV from my Mac Mini without stuttering, unlike iTunes which occasionally stutters and causes my 20 month old to scream in that oh so ear piercing pitch that only little children can produce, and that causes my 6 month old to start crying. I cannot believe that a program like QuickTime Pro doesn't have the simple capability to create a playlist. I backed up all my son's DVD's to our Time Capsule so I could play his movies without having to constantly switch the DVD's, but this isn't much of an improvement. I could have stayed with the free version if I knew Pro couldn't create a playlist either.

    A must-have for Mac users.

    • Written by from Peoria

    Quicktime Pro works perfectly for me. I do a lot of video editing and this is great for converting video files. It works well for viewing even WMV video files. It's the main multimedia tool for the Mac and well worth the price.

    Other features

    • Written by from Olympia

    Why are people complaining about $30. For the extra features it is worth it. I make quick videos using camera in the mac to send to others. Have made audio recordings of meetings that are very clear. Good upgrade. Worth it for me.

    I upgraded the software as I couldnt open some file formats including my movies from Sony camcoder.I still can't open those with the pro version so it was useless.

    Good, but a bit pricy.

    • Written by from Broken Arrow

    I bought this mainly for the ability to save embedded videos from a site, which it does just fine. I think the free version should at least do this. There are a lot of advanced features that most people probably will never use, I know I don't. So, I think a $10 price point would be more appropriate. As far as the functionality goes it is extremely good. Easy to use & plays videos very well.

    Solved my Problem - But Worth $30?

    • Written by from Manhattan Beach

    I bought QT Pro for one reason only - it is (apparently) the only way you can make a video loop on AppleTV (open your movie, do view>loop then save).

    it performs that function flawlessly but I'm really not sure I need any of the other features of QT Pro. iMovie is a much better editing solution and I don't need the format conversion abilities - freeware like VisualHub or Handbrake already do a fine job of that for nothing.

    Maybe I'm missing some killer feature but for now, 3 stars only.

    doesnt do anything that imovie cant do.. in terms of cutting/editing. maybe it just does it a bit quicker, but is that worth $30?

    i bought it 10 minutes ago and am already regretting it

    bought it to convert .mov to .mpeg-4, but it doesnt work. am now paying ANOTHER $20 for a different program... that actually works.

    very limited

    • Written by from Winnipeg

    Not a very useful tool. There are more flexible format converters out there that are available for free or for a nominal fee. I have tried to use QT several times, but there are too many formats it cannot read or export to.

    A wonderful tool

    • Written by from WEYHE

    I've read several reviews now. And many of the "reviewers" simply have not understood what QuickTime is. QuickTime is a player and a conversion tool. Plus, is it has some basic editing features for fine adjustment of saturation etc.

    I use QT regulary as player and for converting film clips. I also have Flip4Mac that enables QT to play and save WMV. It's a simple question of licensing. Also, I use QT for basic quick editing (cutting out short clips or addding short scenes).

    For "true" editing you need a video editing software, like iMovie, Final Cut Express or Pro or any other product on the Windows platform.

    QuickTime Pro is a perfect little helper, a swiss knife - easy to use - that every creative user should have.

    It's absolutely worth 29$.
