New Features (to be listed)
and new pro functions.

Have to check what they are... coming.

Edit: Maybe another member can post the update features, I tried to copy and paste but was too late. Still searching them.

Going to buy QT Pro 7.0 :)

I didn't make a note of them either, lol.

It seems to have the live resizing that I thought would have been a Tiger only thing, and it works fairly well.

Quite annoyed though, it was only a month or so ago that I boughht QT6 Pro, was hoping it'd leave in the features I had, and keep the new QT7 stuff locked, or that they'd have an upgrade option. (yes, it's only £20, but I don't have £20 spare right now)

The update hasn't even appeared on Apple - Support, yet... :)

Available when QT7 is installed, is QuickTime 7 SDK:
The QuickTime 7 SDK contains QuickTime headers for use in creating software that employs QuickTime APIs. The SDK also includes examples and documentation that describe the capabilities of the QuickTime APIs, including the new functionality introduced in QuickTime 7.

After installation, you will find the QuickTime headers in the following directory on your system:

/System/Library/Frameworks/QuickTime.framework/Versions/Current/Headers/

Documentation will be installed in the following directory on your system:

/Developer/Documentation/QuickTime

Example code will be installed in the following directory on your system:

/Developer/Examples/QuickTime
(and this time I remembered the notes, yes... ;))

Edit: While QuickTime 7 requires a restart, QuickTime 7 SDK does not... :)

I bought QT 7.0 Pro. Just :cool:

I like the video control @ full screen, the video and audio recording function, pretty handy.

Export and share, great for emailing to family and friends.
~30 € :eek: But I use it a lot.

Real time resizing is fantastic. actually, now I can't remember how it was before. but I like it better now.

Just installed it, but I don't seem to be able to play .avi files. Has the way components work changed? I just checked and I still have the DivX 5.2 component in my Quicktime folder, which was working in QT6.

My first impression upon seeing this news: Great! I'll be able to buy 7 Pro now :)

Upon closer inspection: OK, my country's not in the list, and there's no option for unlisted countries :mad:

Now I'm waiting for Apple to reply to my email.

QT7 is slow(really slow) in loading Divx and Xvid movies, even if you have their respective codecs in the Quicktime folder. Need updated codecs.

No problem, AmigoMac.

I only loaded in my recently retrieved QT6 Pro code last night...just downloaded and bought 7 Pro though.

Damn I hate being so fixated on Apple!

I like the Audio recording capabilities - bit concerned that the only recording options listed in the 'recording' preference pane were AAC/MPEG4&h.264 as this relies on the people being e-mailed it to have QT or at least for the person recording the files to export it using a different format.

Maybe I just haven't delved deep enough yet.

Dog.

Edit: Not forgetting the device native option, of course...just delved a little more. :eek:

I'm having big problems...

I can't play media off of our streaming server. The window comes up, I hear sound, but there's no video. Just a blank white screen.

I tried going to the Quicktime "Apple Events" page. Can't play that either. See the little "Q" with the "?" in it?

This is happening on all three computers I upgraded to 7.

NOT impressed.

EDIT: I should also mention that the videos on our streaming server DO still play on a PC with Quicktime 6.5. It's something to do with 7.0.

MattG's problems not isolated...

MattG,

Seems my Quicktime has similar issues to yours - can't get any of the Quicktime content on Apple's site to work properly - even the sample movies on the Quicktime tab! Very strange...maybe there's a countdown timer that activates it at the same time the Tigers are released into the wild....

Or maybe there's a company called QuicktimeDirect that are trying to sue, and Apple have had to put its functionality on hold ;)

Edit: Dammit! Jumped the gun again...some of the Apple quicktime content isn't working - things like the QT movies of the products work, but the interactive things on the QT site don't appear to work - they get the question mark, like the ones in MattG's post.

Hey, you're right, I have to look for some codecs, can't play some old videos (AVI Files) :( . What's up? I saw some of them yesterday with QT 6 Pro.

I've been running Tiger for two weeks now.

Without so much as a hint of problem from QT 7. Got my pro key this morning, and everything is working fantastic. I'm really waiting for the QT website to start carrying H.264 encoded trailers. Insofar as I can tell, Tiger is quite the speed demon, on everything from my G4/450, to my friend's Mini, to my 2.5 Dualie. BTW, yes, I downloaded the GM from the net, but I also got my boxed copy yesterday. I shrinkwrapped it, and am Going to keep it as a collectible. "Original Boxed copy of the world's first mass-market 64 bit OS." How much will that be worth in 2050?

Hooray! Quicktime Player app is written in Cocoa and is powered by Quartz 2D Extreme. Just wait until Apple unlocks Q2DE in 10.4.1, we'll see massive hardware GPU accelerated QT playback.

All is fine on the Western front

No problems using OT 7 on 10.3.9, but I'd like to know where to find some H.264 content to watch. Anybody have some suggestions?

Also, if anyone is feeling generous today, feel free to buy me a QT Pro license :)

Quicktime 7 for Windows

The Windows version isn't available yet. :( My friends can't view the video clips I send from Mail using my iSight Camera using the new codec.

Are you sure you got an untouched copy of the GM? If you have any odd problems I suggest you use the install disc that came in the box. And have fun if/when Apple's lawyers come a calling to find out where you downloaded the GM from.

How do you know that's coming in 10.4.1 :confused:

Yes, but you'll need a G5 to take adv of H.264, since the codec is really demanding.

Good joke. H.264 is so scaleable that it can be used in cell phones. Show me a cell phone with a G5 in it. H.264 will work fine on any machine that can run OS X.

[PRO] menu items

CHEEZY! I was always bugged by the little pop-up "Get QuickTime Pro now" window. Now, we get to have cluttered menus showing us what we can't do with the regular version. Give me a break. I do have a copy of Pro. I just don't use it in this office. If I need ot edit content, I go across the hall. I don't want my menus cluttered. . .
