Haven't tested it yet. Have it installed. Hope it fixes the H.264 gamma bug, intermittent glitches in DV playback, and numerous other bugs I've encountered.

I have a feeling that the life resizing is much smoother.

The bad. QT has caused me KP. It also crash while trying to play some of the .avi clips. That could be coused by outdated components for like Divix and Xvid and 3vix which I have installed.

all i've done so far with this is export a file from DivX to another DivX. some reason its not playing on my Xbox. ho hum.

resize does seem a little faster. nothing obvious though.

Installed and restarted - everything seems to be ok here. Wish they'd add support for playing wmv files in it.....I know that wmv sucks but there are a lot of them about and I hate using Media Player and VLC doesn't play them all.

You can use Flip4Mac's WMV component for Quicktime to do that if you want, I use it to offer users an alternative for some websites with different video formats. Works pretty well... just very sloooooow on encoding

Performance

Hopefully this imporves playback performance on my iBook G3. I have a large library of mpeg4 movies that played back great before I upgraded to Tiger and QT 7, now they just stutter and are imbarable. :mad:

Maybe I can use this as an excuse to upgrade with my wife :cool:

What's new?

I'm wondering when Apple will put up [detailed] info about what was changed...

Has anyone else had this problem? I installed the standalone iTunes 5.0 on my PowerBook (OS X 10.4.2 with all updates). Then, I installed the QuickTime 7.0.2 patch from Software Update.

When I rebooted, I got an error from the QuickTime StartupScript (Error -10827). Now, I can't start the QuickTime Player, as I get the error "You cannot open the application "QuickTime Player" because it may be damaged or incomplete." I'm also now seeing "crashdump[451]: coreservicesd crashed" in my console logs.

I've tried repairing disk permissions and restarting, but I cannot get it to work. QuickTime plugins (e.g., in Safari) seem to work ok, though.

Is there a way to re-install the update, without re-downloading QuickTime (which is currently taking 5+ hours)?

Faster GUI, VBR AAC!

Is it me, or are menus and everything just FASTER than before?!

Also, iTunes 5 supports VBR AAC! W00t! :cool:

Having ordered a 4GB iPod nano, I guess I'll be making tests and then re-compressing all my CDs again (from AAC 128kbps to VBR AAC whatever kbps)

Edit: I'm wondering if VBR AAC is supported on all iPods?! :confused:

Edit 2: either there's something I don't understand, or VBR files are actually bigger than CBR ones... (just made a test: CBR 2.8MB, VBR 3.0MB ?!)

It's a no-go for the h.264 gamma bug. I think I'm going to hurt Apple very very much!

Although the increase and decrease size links are nice for making posts. Didn't come from the QuickTime update? Blasted!

I am a sucker for updates but one user said he had problems installing it after iTunes 5.

Hmm... would it be bad if I ran software update to get quicktime and the iTunes 5 installer at the same time (or one after the other without closing the first) so I would have to restart twice?

VBR AAC should already be supported on all iPods, far as I know.
