Now available via Software Update:
QuickTime 7.1.1 addresses an issue with 3rd party start-up items on Intel Macs. This release also fixes an issue exporting Keynote presentations to iDVD.

Important Notice to QuickTime Pro Users
Installation of QuickTime 7 will disable the QuickTime Pro functionality in prior versions of QuickTime, such as QuickTime 5 or QuickTime 6. If you proceed with this installation, you must purchase a new QuickTime 7 Pro key to regain QuickTime Pro functionality. After installation, visit www.apple.com/quicktime to purchase a QuickTime 7 Pro key.

Gone but not forgotten.
Of course, if you already have a version 7 key, you don't need to do anything else. ;)

I thought I'd missed this update while I was offline last week. I guess I was right on time, seeing it in Software Update before seeing it posted anywhere.

oy, they make having the Pro Key totally useless...

Any chance of Apple ever making full-screen a non-pro function? It's a little ridiculous.

Did they release 7.1.1 for Windows, or is this Mac only and Windows XP version still at 7.1? Thanks,

You don't need to purchase a new Pro key with this update...only major (i.e. an entire number upgrade) updates, such as QuickTime 6 -> QuickTime 7.

But I'm with you - hopefully Leopard's QuickTime 8 will offer full-screen without purchasing a pro package.

Full screen is only restricted by the QT Player application's menubar, not by the QT subsystem itself. A quick AppleScript can be used instead.

Use the Script Editor to create the following one-line AppleScript:
Code:
tell application "QuickTime Player" to present movie 1
Compile this and save it to ~/Library/Scripts. Use the AppleScript Utility to enable the menu-bar icon for AppleScripts.

Now, when your movie is playing, use the AppleScript menu to activate that script you created. Voilla! Your movie is playing full-screen.

I've noticed some minor weird behavior if you turn off full-screen mode while the movie is playing (the sound seems to go away), but this isn't a big deal. If you quit and restart the player, the movie will once again play fine in its window. A minor inconvenience if this is the only QT-Pro feature you want to use.

So does that mean that the Adobe CS2 Version Cue will work on Intel Macs now???????

You can also just drop your QT clips into iTunes which will play them back in full screen mode.

I'm interested in this issue as well... does the QT 7.1.1 update address the Adobe CS2 startup hang issue?

Probably not. It doesn't fix the Burning Monkey Puzzle Lab startup hang issue.

I'm on my way to file a bug report with Apple....

Strange, I hadn't run Burning Monkey Puzzle Lab since QuickTime 7.1 came out. Hangs for me too :(.

Fortunately, you can go back. From Apple's download site, you can get the QuickTime 7.0.1 reinstaller, and then the QuickTime 7.0.4 installer. BMPL works fine with 7.0.4.

I hope Apple and/or Freeverse fixes this soon....

Thanks for letting me know. To be honest, I don't play BMPL much anymore, so waiting until they fix it isn't too big of a deal.

Wonder if this helps solve the issue between Quicktime and KB 908531 on Windows XPx64/2003 installs. Lovely mistake that one was.

EDIT: OH bummer, no 7.1.1 for Winders. ;) OH well, my mac will like it.

Thanks. That's very helpful. I have QuickTime Pro at home, but whenever I am at my parents house and I try to play a movie trailer full screen, I get the whole "Please purchase QuickTime Pro" thing.

Do you know if it's possible to have a scripts menu just in QuickTime Player instead of system wide? That's how my iTunes scripts are. They show up in a menu just before the help menu. I tried creating a scripts folder in ~/Library/QuickTime Player/ just like my iTunes one and it didn't do anything.

Yes it fixes the version cue issue :)

"Problems with installing and running Adobe’s Creative Suite 2 (CS2) were tracked down to Apple’s QuickTime 7.1 update. Apple released QuickTime 7.1.1 yesterday to fix these issues and allow CS2 to operate properly."

Hoping this would fix video sharing problem, but it didn't.

I don't know if anyone else is having this issue, but for some reason I cannot get videos on my iMac G5 to run on my Mac Mini (Intel) and MacBook reliably. I have no issues though running them on our iBook or Powerbook. I was hoping this update would fix the issue, but sadly it does not.

What'll happen is that using Front Row or iTunes as a client on my Intel machines and then trying to access TV shows purchased from iTunes will result in iTunes locking up about 98% of the time. If by some miracle I can view the TV show on the client machine, it'll only work one time and after that subsequent attempts will lock iTunes.

It's not an authentication issue and the network has plenty of bandwidth. Anyone else seeing this?

Update: Freeverse released a workaround. http://www.freeverse.com/bmpl/. This "update" disables the background music (by renaming the folder in the application package where they're located), allowing the game to play under QT 7.1.

They acknowledged (in an e-mail) that this is not a proper fix, but they say Apple will have to fix their QT bug to fix this properly. In the meanwhile, I'll just have to play iTunes in the background....
