    The Option key has a lot of hidden uses in QuickTime Player, at least when combined with the arrow keys.

    Option + Left = Go to beginning
    Option + Right = Go to end
    Option + Up = Go to maximum volume
    Option + Down = Go to minimum volume

    Here's where it gets really interesting...

    Option + Shift + Up = Go to a louder maximum volume, normally unattainable in QuickTime Player, and impossible to achieve in iTunes (as far as I know).

    Other combinations of Shift and Option along with the arrow keys also do various interesting things, some of which may only work in QuickTime Pro.

    Its irritating Apple go to this, while VLC puts values over 100% in the slider...

    And what's the shortcut for full screen? :rolleyes:

    Obviously this is a gag, but I hate the way Apple expect you to pay for this "feature". Long live qtfs!
