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.

"Getting Better"

February 06, 2008  |  By mrniceguy35

 |  Version: QuickTime 7.4

Pros

Finally a bigger screen, which kept me from using it before except when some movies required it. More features that earlier versions.

Cons

Many of the new features it has requires you to pay for the "Pro" version such as saving files so while it has done better to compete with Windows Media Player the extra features will still cost you about $30.

"Once again, Apple did only half of the job."

February 05, 2008  |  By oneduce

 |  Version: QuickTime 7.4

Cons

Yes, Quicktime DOES support H.264 video, but NO, it does NOT utilize Hardware Video Overlay when playing the video. The picture would be worth watching if it did. Compare how H.264 video looks between Quicktime and GOM Player, and you'll never go back to Quicktime.

Yes, Quicktime DOES support LC-AAC Audio, but NO, it does NOT support HE-AAC. If you heard how good HE-AAC sounds on Winamp (even at extremely low bitrates), you'll never go back to Quicktime.

Over the years, I've become tired of Quicktime being an example of Apple getting the job only half done.
