QuickTime

CNET 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.

    "DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!!!"

    November 13, 2005  |   By bpinfl80

    Version: QuickTime 6.5.2

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    We're all accustomed to the annoying window asking us to upgrade to Pro. No big deal. Version 7 now combines I-Tunes with Quicktime. That's just another annoyance. Installation is terrible. My biggest problem is that this installation caused irreparable damage to my Windows 2000 machine. After installing Quicktime 7, Windows would no longer load. I couldn't even load to Safe Mode. I had to reformat my entire machine. This program is worse than a virus. Do not download it unless you like reinstalling all of your software!!!

    "it is good!"

    June 14, 2005  |   By Gazoya

    Version: QuickTime 6.5.2

    Pros

    it is good unless your one of those stupid people that does not know how to shut off the hot picks movie that is enabled by default when you install quicktime as well as the system tray icon that is also enabled by default during installation all you have to do is go into the preferences and click the browser plugin tab and uncheck the box that says install system tray icon and thats easy it plays most mpeg1 files pretty well on my computer unless you are using a computer that is too old to handle quicktime very well and go into player preferences to disable the quicktime hot picks movie that automatically loads on starting up quicktime... and it does support .avi files just not Divx Avi files only regular avi files! I mean come on people get educated about how quicktime works!

    Cons

    does not support Divx .AVI Files like I said it only supports regular .AVI Files. Get it?

    "Piece of crap!!"

    June 3, 2005  |   By castor1000000

    Version: QuickTime 6.5.2

    Pros

    Only way to see EA sport game previews

    Cons

    All!!!

    Spyware.

    Anoying upgrade to Pro messages.

    Intrusibe in your folders, space, registry, shortcuts.

    If you delete from start-up it is autoinstalled again after the next run.

    Now, Quicktime dont let you download just the player, you have to install also the iTunes installing a lot of crap on your computer.

    I already spent 30 minutes looking for the previous version just to install the player.

    Look for an alternative for .mov files

    "Average!"

    June 3, 2005  |   By Lou11

    Version: QuickTime 6.5.2

    Pros

    This is a good media player if you leave out some of the cons. It plays media well.

    Cons

    Usually the files it plays are really bad quality and if you are viewing a quicktime file on a website it takes forever to load.

    "Good media player"

    June 3, 2005  |   By arsenijcz

    Version: QuickTime 6.5.2

    Pros

    Some things just got to be played with QuickTime 6.5.2, but there are loads of media players which can do the same thing.

    It is very easy to install and use. It dose not have a lot of features but it good if you want to play back something. It installs some useful codec which are very valuable for your pc to play many things audio and video.

    It provides you with good sound quality and good picture quality with is important.

    Cons

    starts up everytime(but you can change that)

    "Not the reason Apple leads desktop media"

    May 17, 2005  |   By Downlodah

    Version: QuickTime 6.5.2

    Pros

    QT plug-in for web browsers to allow for 360-degree panoramic views of photos and such (houses, landscapes, cars, etc.)

    Cons

    This player has little or no use to anyone outside hardcore Apple users, when compared to practically any other player available for Windows. Unless you have an iTunes account, MP4 is useless (just waiting for WMP to have MP4 capability, if it doesn't already). And no I DO NOT want to upgrade to QuickTime Pro!

    It can't run my movie files! Every time I try to watch a movie It says that it cannot open the file because of this or because of that! Would someone help me?

    May 6, 2005  |   By nonnv

    Version: QuickTime 6.5.2

    Pros

    This is probrablay the best web player around. it's so easy to use that evan may can work with it.

    Yes it sometimes seams to auto start with windows, but that's because those users simpley dont know how to tame windows and all its apps. they let the software teme them :)

    Cons

    to bad it isn't like the mac version.

    the mac version is more like WM Player
