I have used the forum search feature and can't seem to find the answer to my question.
What I would like to know, is whether or not it is worth purchasing the Pro version of Quicktime. I have a 5G Ipod which I have wanted to put some quicktime files onto, but not having the Pro version, I can't. I also wouldn't mind saving some of the trailers as well.

What I would like to know, is whether or not $45 is worth the purchase price or not. Are there any free utilities /hacks that will let me save quicktime files and/or convert them to my ipod.

Thank-you

There's a free application that converts video faster than quicktime, and it puts it into iTunes for you automatically so it will work on your ipod. :thumbup:

Another reason not to bother buying QT Pro:

Make Quicktime view files in full screen just like with the pro version.

The QuickTime API is included as part of MacOS X, so all you get with QuickTime Pro is the application and internet plugins that make use of the QuickTime Framework.

Having said that, I paid for it because it has the nicest UI of the other players I looked at.

Isnt the quicktime app installed already have all of the pro features and only the license code is needed to unlock them?

That&#39;s right - one serial unlocks it and all those blurred options suddenly become clear. I personally would love to see Apple kill off the whole Quicktime Pro attitude with Leopard and have a single Quicktime application that comes preloaded.

I thought so :D

I would also like to see apple giving quicktime pro features free with leopard, i mean we pay enough for the OS and iLife and iWork already as it is.

Ooh&#33; Ooh&#33; Ooh&#33; I don&#39;t think so&#33; All we QT Pro users will be very miffed, after having paid the licencing fee for every version since QT4. Some of us have even paid for MPEG playback for Krissakes - and you want it for free??&#33;&#33; Next you&#39;ll be wanting free car registration, and the right to vote&#33;
Seriously though, I can&#39;t see Apple letting go of this cash cow. I still believe it&#39;s the best "general" video app out there, and thus worth the cough-up.
