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.

"Go to H*LL, Apple"

January 23, 2008  |  By InsertCleverUserNameHere

 |  Version: QuickTime 7.3.1

Pros

It plays the Quicktime format. Whoop-dee-ding-dong-doo.

Cons

The most instrusive software I've ever seen. It highjacks your file associations, every time it runs. It inserts itself into your start menu, every time it runs. It plugs itself into your browser, and hides so it can't be unplugged. Mr. Jobs can take his program (and iTunes too), shove it where the sun don't shine, and give it a good hard twist counterclockwise.

"its piggyback software and its intrusive"

January 14, 2008  |  By nemmmo

 |  Version: QuickTime 7.3.1

Pros

it should be illegal to piggybacked software. Windows media player was fine. It even gave me a full screen, and it was free. I like my iPod, but not at the additional expense of $25 to get a decent video player that offers full screen. I've uninstalled and reinstalled QuickTime, about six times now just to watch a full screen video with Windows media player. There must be a way around the intrusive behavior of this stupid little program.

Anybody have ideas.

I agree,I'd stay away from this!!

Cons

it's unnecessary. There are plenty of media players to offer full screen viewing without paying any money. Its piggyback software being supported by a very popular device called iPod. If the product was any better. I'm sure they wouldn't have to resort to such practice.

 |  Version: QuickTime 7.3.1

Cons

What I don?t like is that it doesn?t start playing the file automatically. You have to click on the play button when the player opens. It doesn?t support few audio and video formats.
