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.

"it is simply another bully product created by apple,"

December 04, 2010  |  By steve199110

 |  Version: Apple QuickTime 7.6.8

Pros

It works, yet not great

Cons

It made itself default program for many extension, yet for some extension such as mp4 it does not allow you to made other software as default program. It is simply bullying. Well I have to say it is what apple does, just like what they always does.

Summary

Junk, absolutely junk, use it only if u were using itune for your ipod or iphone.

"lot to down load with very little change from previous"

November 09, 2010  |  By scott7068

 |  Version: Apple QuickTime 7.6.8

Pros

The one good thing I can give Quick Time is that it shows a pretty classy movie picture.

Cons

Other then being Apples, Media Player I'm not sure what function it has thats different than, iTunes store. Accept that there is less offered material in Quick Time, than iTunes.
But I'm know Geek, so maybe it has some real purpose?

Summary

It's hard really to add anything else's I have used Quick Time to play downloaded movies and it does a very nice job.

"Would not install on my Windows 7 64 bit computer"

November 07, 2010  |  By rgrut

 |  Version: Apple QuickTime 7.6.8

Pros

Couldn't tell you.

Cons

Tried everything I read about to try to install but always got an error.

Summary

Probably works great on a 32 bit system. I finally gave up and used an alternate program to view the Quicktime files on my computer. Uninstall and reinstall iTunes, update Java first, Blah, blah, blah......Too much B__ll__it!
