QuickTime X seems to be better than standard QT but less than Pro.

    Based on the current leaked build of SL, it seems that QuickTime X is far better than the standard QuickTime 7, but still lacks some of the features that were in QuickTime Pro. It gains some former Pro-only features like being able to save for the web, or exporting to other formats like the iPhone.

    Thus, I think Apple is going to be discontinuing QuickTime Pro (because honestly, it was so easy to pirate, who would spend $29 on it?) and will simply add more former Pro-only features as updates to SL are imminent.

    Also, for those curious, at the moment, it doesn't seem to support any more codecs than the current QT does. I still can't play .wmv, .avi or .mkv without the help of Perian.

    I agree, I was just using the Screen Recording, which is nice, but it's lacking some Pro features.

    I wouldn't expect it to support any more codecs than 7.

    Hope so too.

    At the moment, Quicktime Pro does that.

    They might still add it.

    Spawns 32-bit helper processes. Only thing that's 64-bit is the UI, which doesn't benefit much from it. That said, I like the new UI. The export UI is finally usable, and the clean player UI makes it great to leave to the side whilst you're doing something.

    Also, built-in codec support still blows.
