    Is there a way to watch things fullscreen in Quicktime without paying for the pro version? And if not, is there some other program to watch .avi files in fullscreen for Mac?

    Go to versiontracker.com there is a program called full screen movie player. It plays QT files in full-screen. Also Video Lan Client may be able to do it.

    You can also write an applescript to play movies fullscreen using Quicktime. Don't know if it still works in the latest version, but it wasn't long ago that I did it. As a practical joke, i wrote this applescript to play a movie of the victim's boyfriend dancing around like an idiot, then placed it in the startup items. She still hasn't figured out how to remove it yet.

    VLC and MPlayer both are excellent video players. Both are free, play full screen and play almost any type of movie file around.
