    With the new features of Quicktime X in snow leopard, I'm wondering is Quicktime pro now obselete or does it still have features that quicktime x does not?

    Can anybody tell me what features pro has over quicktime x? I'm considering getting pro and want to know if it's worth it.

    I think QTX will not be as fully featured as QT pro. I don't know what will be different about QTX but I am guessing it will just be faster or have a slightly different UI. I expect there will be a QTX pro to get if you want. as I said I don't know, but that is my guess.

    please let me know too if any of you know better.

    QuickTime X is lacking a lot of features that QuickTime 7 Pro had. That is why if you had QuickTime 7 Pro and you install Snow Leopard, it keeps QuickTime 7 Pro on your machine in the Utilities folder.

    I hope that more pro features are added in Snow Leopard updates, but I might be a bit optimistic.

    It goes to say that if you never had QuickTime 7 Pro, you will actually be gaining more features with QuickTime X.

    If you want to play WMV files with QuickTime X, you must have Flip4Mac beta and Perian installed.

    can you elaborate? As long as I can capture video/audio from say.. a webcam and export it as a MOV file with Quicktime X, I am a happy camper.

    Just thought I'd mention that QuickTime Player 7 (the old version you can opt to keep under Snow Leopard if you have a pro key) is NOT the same as the old QuickTime 7 Pro, at least in respect to exporting.

    Under Leopard I was able to open a number of files at the same time, and choose Export in each one to export the files to Apple TV. This was quicker than using something like Handbrake. However, this bastardised version now only allows me to export ONE file at a time.

    If I open, say, 5 files at once and choose to export in the first one, I cannot interact with the menus or the other player windows. If I attempt to, it stops the first one from being exported, and asks me how and where to export the second one.

    This is a massive productivity killer for me. I have a dual quad-core machine here, and only one core is being used.

    I'm bugging this with Apple. This really screws up my productivity.
