iTunes 7.3.1 appears to be new; Software Update is also offering me QuickTime 7.2.

QuickTime 7.2 addresses critical security issues and delivers:
- Support for full screen viewing in QuickTime Player
- Updates to the H.264 codec
- Numerous bug fixes

This release is recommended for all QuickTime 7 users.

Important Notice to QuickTime Pro Users
QuickTime 7 will disable the QuickTime Pro functionality in prior versions of QuickTime, such as QuickTime 5 or QuickTime 6. If you proceed with this installation, you must purchase a new QuickTime 7 Pro key to regain QuickTime Pro functionality. After installation, visit Apple - QuickTime to purchase a QuickTime 7 Pro key.

With iTunes 7.3, you can now activate iPhone service and sync it with your music, TV shows, movies and more. Also, you can now wirelessly share and enjoy your favorite digital photos from any computer in your home with Apple TV. iTunes 7.3.1 addresses a minor problem with iTunes 7.3 accessing the iTunes Library.

Does this mean non QT Pro will now play fullscreen? I can't tell, I have QTP by default with FCP. If so this is good news. One of the biggest complaints against QT has been the lack of fullscreen playback.

That is what is sounds like.

I do applaud this news. Just wonderring if I can't get a refund for Quicktime Pro 6 since that version is gone, can I at least get a refund for 7. Haha. :eek: Nah I do use the other Pro features like converting videos from one format to another, I find Quicktime pretty powerful for that. And with WMV support it basically plays everything. I only use VLC if I want to quickly create playlists for videos.

It's about time Apple did this with the fullscreen. Having to have people pay for pro features to get fullscreen video was very lame. :eek:

Yeah, the Fullscreen for non-pro is a great change -- one that was rumoured for Leopard, but now everyone gets it.

But dona's right -- the "Pro" editing/converting features make quicktime a pretty nifty quick and dirty editor. Though with VisualHub, iSquint and MPEGstreamclip, it's given a run for it's money.

I did both the upgrades via Software update

and now find that QT is broken in some site and shows up as a Dimmed QT logo with a Question Mark superimposed......Going back to yesterdays back up and booting from that clears the problem so its something in one or both of the new updates to Quicktime and iTunes . Also I have lost my iTunes feed to the Local airport and Regional police services . Barber pole showing connecting and then a time out ..

Any suggestions ?

Oh yea, like clipping out videos, clipping videos together, I love the pro version. Just glad that for the average consumers who don't require pro version, they can now watch their movies fullscreen like just about every other video player out there, I mean gosh even Youtube has fullscreen. :)

I agree, it's long overdue -- at least Apple is now doing it. They could have held out even longer (or just included it in Leopard, to entice people to buy the new OS).

Really? Currently I use Windows Classic Media Player, which in my opinion is the best for the XP system. VLC would be a close second. Maybe Mac users have more problems with VLC? Anyway, I'm wondering because once I have my mac I'll need to find a suitable viewing program.

My primary viewer for almost everything that is not specifially a quicktime move is usually VLC, but I guess YMMV. I also use VLC to play a lot of MP3 files, specifically ones I don't want to automatically get added to my library (doing studio stuff and online music collaboration I listen to a LOT of temp mp3's)

I love the QT Pro features and use them regularly as well but it is great that the non-pro users who want full screen video don't have to dish out for it. In the 21st century that's as lame as lame can be.

Any of the dual screen users out there notice a behavioural change for the bad with the new full screen mode? :( I can't leave the player fullscreen on one monitor and go to another app on the second any longer. They did have that fixed up for a while, but it seems that its back to going into a window when you background the application again, grrr.

Oh well, VLC it is then ;)

Installed it right when I got home from vacation, and it seems to work great.
