    I want to export avi videos to work on my wife's ipod and was wondering if it's worth getting quicktime pro or simply using imovie to export to ipod compatible formats? I've tried handbrake and files won't work in itunes.

    try something like iSquint that is free or visualhub that costs a little bit. Both are better than QT pro for simple conversions.

    Since I invested in so much other "pro" software (FCP), I purchased QT Pro.

    However, to answer your question, I would not say QT Pro is worth $30.

    I think Apple is just being arses, as this software should be standard and free.

    At least they finally made the full screen feature standard.

    Can you believe Apple actually used to charged money for users to watch QT videos full screen!

    Absolutely not, isquint is very cool, i found a torrent for it awhile back. Quicktime pro isn't that great, certainly not worth 30 dollars.

    I believe its worth more than $30 so for the money its a bargain. I use it all the time. Awesome value.

    Use ffmpegx. It's free and has a ton of options. It'll have a "nag" screen since its shareware, but the only features you miss are DVD encoding features. By that I mean encoding for a DVD, not taking video from a DVD and encoding it.

    in short, nope.

    like what others have said, there are a few free apps out there for the same purpose. :)
