I grew fond of it as soon as I used in on the mac... I hated the windows version though.

If you just need the Pro version for Full Screen viewing, save your money and see this quick article: http://www.macworld.com/weblogs/mac911/2005/08/fullscreen/index.php

This is the backbone of all of Apple's media applications. Apple is slow to adopt new decoding schemes, but as a whole can decode most formats. Windows users will find that a number of AVI codecs are not supported. This isn't a problem with QT, but rather a problem with the AVI specifications, which allows developers to create their own codecs. People that use pay-site video, my have problems with decodeing AVIs.

WMF,WMV is now supported though plug-ins, through Flip4Mac. So far, there is no decoding through QT of Windows formatted media with Windows DRM.

Users will find it beneficial to go to Apple's QT page and down load any and all plug-ins, as many codecs common on the web are supported, but not bundled with QT.

Apple has really got to throw Quicktime Pro in as part of the OS X operating system. As is, OS X already comes with the library to do everything, it's just the client that won't give access to it. Clever scripting with AppleScript can get you the additional features, like full screen playback, but most regular users aren't going to know how. Still, I've bought the Pro version for my machines just because it really is that handy.
