    Find Any File can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Basically, I accidentally put in a plural in one of the defaults write commands:

    defaults write com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX MGPlayMoviesOnOpen 1

    And I want to get rid of it. I've verified its existence in Terminal with "defaults read | grep -i MGPlay," which gives me these two entries:

    MGPlayMovieOnOpen = 1;
    MGPlayMoviesOnOpen = 1;

    Can deleting the second line be done through Terminal without knowing its exact location?

    defaults delete com.apple.com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX MGPlayMovieOnOpen

    then

    defaults delete com.apple.com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX MGPlayMoviesOnOpen

    Your example is one of the reason we need to teach people to delete preference keys they add, rather than simply set them to their opposite boolean value (i.e. make a FALSE into a TRUE, or a 0 into a 1).

    Changing recording resolution

    Hi,

    I am trying to figure out if there is a way to change recordings using the iSight camera in QuickTime X (10.8) to a lower resolution and possibly lower bandwidth. As it is, a 640x480 file takes up over 1 GB in Mountain Lion with an HD iSight camera set to the lowest available setting of Medium. In Snow Leopard on a Mac with a lower resolution camera where the max was 640x480, the Medium setting allowed you to record up to 13 hours in a 1 GB file.

    I sometimes use this computer to record for long periods of time for security reasons and was thus wondering if anyone knows how to do this.

    I found this site which lists different settings, but I'm not a Terminal guy, so I couldn't make heads or tails of it:

    http://www.hackmac.org/tutorials/hack-and-disable-the-isight-camera/

    Look under Advanced Options. Would that help me?

    Thanks!

    Rounded corners fix not working as expected in Mountain Lion

    defaults write com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX MGCinematicWindowDebugForceNoRoundedCorners 1

    entered via Terminal doesn't seem to accomplish any visual changes in QuickTime Player 10.2/Mountain Lion.

    But...it does have an effect.

    defaults write com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX MGCinematicWindowDebugForceNoRoundedCorners 1

    results in the record control for screen recording not being clickable, and the movie window not being movable by the title bar.

    defaults write com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX MGCinematicWindowDebugForceNoRoundedCorners 0

    results in the record control for screen recording being clickable, and the movie window being movable by the title bar.

    Interesting.
