    I've noticed that Leopard's Front Row doesn't "live preview" movies by playing them without sound, like Tiger's Front Row did. Is this a bug? My understanding is that Quick Look is used to power Front Row in Leopard, and Quick Look IS capable of previewing any movie type QuickTime can understand.

    Front row has lost many features that existed in the Tiger version. They seem to have stripped it down completly. For me the new FR is full of "bugs". I hope they update FR soon!

    I actually found that feature really annoying. If you were using anything other than quicktime or iTunes files (by navigated to the Movies folder with Perian installed), it took minutes to flick through a group of videos like a TV series.

    If you load up iTunes with high res Movie or Tv Show artwork, the new Front Row is alot more attractive.
