Editors' Review

+

After 10 years and with millions of users worldwide, Apple's QuickTime player still provides one of the best solutions for digital media. Whether you're watching streaming movie trailers online or diving headlong into QuickTime as a creation platform, you'll find little to quibble about in this veteran player.

Its few quirks are quickly offset by the elegant Apple interface and the top-notch audio/video playback quality. QuickTime 7 comes in two varieties. The free standard player handles popular audio, graphic, and video formats, including the much-ballyhooed H.264 and MPEG-4. Also, for $29.95, you can upgrade to the content-creation-friendly Pro version, which adds features such as full-screen playback, easy editing, H.264/MPEG-4 production, and the ability to save movies from the Web.

MPEG-2 support is available, but at an additional cost of $19.95.High-definition content looks impressive with the new H.264 codec, but hardly better than with similar offerings from Microsoft. The stylish transport controls and the friendly layout work well. Inclusion of the autoupdate and automatic-network-detection features make getting started and staying current easy.

Overall, QuickTime 7 continues to be a must-have for anyone surfing the Web or looking to experience the best in digital media.

"An Honest Review by an Award-Winning Media Expert!"

July 14, 2009  |  By homier

 |  Version: Apple QuickTime 7.6.2

Pros

Quicktime is brilliant in comparison to anything in the industry. It's point is proven with support for media standards that other media players just simply cannot compete and bring to market. We must face the reality; Macintosh makes media.

Cons

I wish one didn't have to purchase the upgraded version to get to the features that quite simply Apple should want all users to have.

Summary

Apple has always lead the front with media. It started out with desktop publishing, and Apple has never lost its lead, bringing new media creation to the screen, and usually free through its applications it provides, especially now with OS X. Quicktime will bring High Definition media to the screen, including Television Broadcasts. Apple wins the war over Windows Media Player by far, supporting the industry standards that are cutting edge, instead of WMP supporting proprietary standards, limiting one to Microsoft's software only.

"Good player"

June 14, 2009  |  By lomaalta

 |  Version: Apple QuickTime 7.6.2

Pros

This version works!

Cons

The old version didn't!

Summary

I have always liked QT, but the older version didn't work on a regular basis. It crashed about half the time so I had to depend on other players. The new version works great with no crashing. The videos are clear and seem sharper than before, especially on DVI.
