Apple has released QuickTime 7.2 for Mac and Windows. The update includes a bunch of bug fixes, updates to the H.264 codec, and oh yeah: support for full screen playback.

That's right, the free version of QuickTime has finally caught up to pretty much every free media player on the market. Up until now, if you wanted to watch full screen video using QuicktTme, you had to pay $30 for a QuickTime Pro license.

Apple is forcing windows users to upgrade to Vista :smoker:

Sorry, just thought I'd get that in.

Guess it's almost time for me to stick QT back on my system, since I have a paid license and all that :p

all these years they expected us to PAY for fullscreen playback, let alone a buggy, ugly, intrusive, out of place mess of a video player? unbelievable.

their h264 codec is one of the worst too, wonder what the "updates" are, not interested until there is at least a 50% increase in decoding speed and high profile support (the latter of which they really should've had long ago). and don't get me started on the speed and quality of their encoder...

Apple didn't develop H.264. :ermm:

I think he's referring to Apple's implementation of H.264 in QT.

precisely :)

x264 and nero both are capable of high profile encodes. yet quicktime, which has the most resources behind it, not to mention a lot of business and likely the largest userbase, only supports up to main profile.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
