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.

"Wasted My Time Downloading It, It doesn't install.."

August 06, 2010  |  By Victorloo

 |  Version: Apple QuickTime 7.6.6

Pros

Nothing as I could not installed the program

Cons

Installer keep looking for " QuickTime.msi " which is not included in downloaded file.

Summary

I do not know why the file "QuickTime.msi" cannot be located during the installation. It may not be included in the downloaded file, or it was not able to connect to the internet file server. But my computer is definitely connected and online.

"Editors Choice? Seriously?"

June 27, 2010  |  By chcourt1

 |  Version: Apple QuickTime 7.6.6

Pros

It works, I guess. Better than I remembered it being 10 years ago, sort of.

Cons

Nagging updates, slow, ugly* port.
*Ugly as in it still tries to look like a Mac app on Windows and sticks out like a sore thumb (think iTunes)

Summary

I'm not sure what's worse, the editor's review or the embarrassing description from Apple. But seriously, Apple can?t write a good Windows app to save their lives. QuickTime is awesome on its native platform, but there is absolutely no reason to install this terrible port on Windows (esp. on 7 which plays .mov out-of-the box). The fact that this piece of software got 5 stars makes me question the usefulness of every review on CNET.
