Like to take a magic carpet ride?

Just launch QuickTime Player, and there’s no telling where you’re likely to land. The Player may whisk you to the Moon or perhaps to an exotic location on this planet. Take you on a virtual field trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Or treat you to the latest news, movie trailers, music videos, HBO series or PBS specials.

Huge disappointment. "Support for modern codecs" doesn't mean just H264 decoding via Core Video. It means playing avi's, mkv and ogm properly, also with core video support.

SL should've been Mac OS 10.5.9.

Another "great" feature in X version. Now I don't have the option to save videos to disk!

Version X (comes in Snow Leopard) really sucks comparing to 7.6.
-Edit functionality is a joke, you can only TRIM.
-New visual interface is horrible. You have no idea about the length of the video. A small bar (like internet browser's player) in the bottom to KNOW at what time your video is should be an option.

O, my bad, "wis" already wrote that way at the bottom of the page

actually, there was a simple applescript that you could use to make quicktime go fullscreen without paying a cent. Still, I agree that it's obviously easier this way. I guess since Quicklook and Itunes and Imovie let you go fullscreen it was stupid for Quicktime not to.

Wow, fullscreen playback for free - I think it was one of Apples best tricks to make their costumers pay extra for using the area close to the edges ;-)

Finally, full screen playback for free.

My employer is buying Quicktime Pro licenses, primarily because I showed him the basics of what can be done with it. QT Pro is undoubtably one of the easiest programs for basic recording and editing (despite missing some rather important features for some cases, especially where audio is concerned), as grabbing specific portions of a video to edit is mind-blowingly simple.
I should point out that, at my job, we help train people in programs, and/or show them the basics so they can do what they want. QT Pro gave us a much easier and much faster option other than Premier and other enormous video editing apps that have a steep learning curve.

That said, standing alone as a player, it's a very good app, but not great. But as it's everywhere, there are a LOT of great plugins that extend its functionality to really be a very useful player. Thumbs up, IMO. It's also easy to include in a program.

One should really use NicePlayer instead. It uses the same engine, allows fullscreen, stays on top, borderless window and playlists.

And free... unlike QuickTime Pro.

I love quicktime becasue it plays back so well, did you know that iTunes basicly runs a copy of quicktime for movies and that frontrow really is running movies from iTunes OR Quicktime?
