    I'm not a huge fan of Quicktime X but it seems to be the default for Mac so I tend to use it. The one thing that REALLY bothers me is that the controls for controlling the video DISAPPEAR and don't come back. Is there a way to change this? There has to be...

    Basically once I hover back over on a video I can't control it unless I know the keyboard shortcuts. Please help, thanks!

    You can also use Applications / Utilities / QuickTime Player 7 or VLC Player or Movist to play video files.

    Btw, to play or pause video in QT X, use the SPACEBAR. To fast forward use CMD+ArrowRight (repeat for faster speeds), the move backwards use CMD+BackArrow.

    I learned that... but isn't there a way so that when I hover over the Quicktime the controls pop up? That's the way I would ideally like it... Thank you.

    it already does that. when you hover over the video the controls pop up. unless you mean hover over the dock icon that doesnt work.
