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.

"Not sure what this is supposed to do..."

April 30, 2012  |  By jeffdee107

 |  Version: Apple QuickTime 7.7.1

Pros

No idea...

Cons

Quicktime player letters/images appear "fuzzy", as if they are meant to be viewed on an Iphone or small screen.

Summary

Overall, this is terrible. I was hoping for something that would allow me to convert files easily so I can view and edit them (imovie) on the ipad. Secondarily, I was looking for software that I could use to make, edit, etc, movies. I'm not sure what I got for $30, honestly! As far as I'm concerned, this was very counter-apple, as it wasn't very easy to use, made little sense (zero intuitiveness) and generally just makes me frustrated. At this point, I STILL cant convernt or upload video to my ipad from a third party source (HD Camcorder).

"QT 7.7.1 does not work with Win. XP Pro"

March 30, 2012  |  By gklowe

 |  Version: Apple QuickTime 7.7.1

Pros

DOES NOT WORK ON WINDOWS XP PRO

Cons

All kinds of problems with QT Unavailable was not found error #1307900

Summary

Every time I have tried to install QuickTime it gives me me the above error and keeps repeating until it uses up my memory. I have installed over a dozen times and each time I have to un-install it. Plus, Apple does not support this or iTunes when you have a problem, especially if you are running Windows.

"Poor customer service for a product non-working product"

November 23, 2011  |  By edgeways

 |  Version: Apple QuickTime 7.7.1

Pros

People seem to like it

Cons

Incredibly long wait time for customer service

Summary

For whatever reason we have trouble installing QT pro after purchase. Called to get assistance. 2 1/2 hours later they where unable to offer a solution that worked and flatly refused to refund the money. So, not only where we out of the purchase price but 2 1/2 hours on hold.

"Works well when needed for webpage."

November 08, 2011  |  By pebbles63

 |  Version: Apple QuickTime 7.7.1

Pros

When a webpage requires quicktime to play a video, the video usually plays without problems.

Cons

Don't have much use for it except when required for webpage.

Summary

I don't use this software except when webpage requires it. It seems to work well when needed but I use other media players.
