The new version of QuickTime included with Snow Leopard (called QuickTime Player X) is almost a complete overhaul of the previous version, from the look and feel of the application windows right down to the preferences menu (or lack thereof). If you were looking to change some options but don't know where to start, our Preference Pane can help you enable or disable many of QuickTime's features. Options include: 1. Rounded Corners: Curves the edges of QuickTime's movie windows. Available options are enable and disable. 2. Allow Simultaneous Recordings: Changes QuickTime's default setting for the number of iSight recordings you can create at one time from 1 to unlimited. Available options are enable and disable. 3. Autoplay Movies: Allows QuickTime to play movie files automatically upon opening. Available options are enable and disable. 4. Closed Captioning & Subtitles: Displays CC and/or subtitles by default when playing a supported movie file. Available options are enable and disable. 5. Exit Fullscreen Mode on Application Switch: Allows another application in Mac OS to tell QuickTime to exit full screen mode upon activation. Available options are enable and disable. 6. Show Inspector At Launch: Automatically shows the movie inspector window when opening a movie file. Available options are enable and disable. 7. Titlebar & Controller Fade Out: Displays the amount of time (in seconds) it takes for QuickTime's titlebar and movie controller to disappear. Available options are user defined. 8.Number of Recent Documents: Changes the "Open Recent" submenu within QuickTime to display the chosen number of files. Available options are 0, 5, 10, and 15.
