    Father, QTPro offers advanced export and editing features. It is really very useful for someone who is putting videos on the web. If you just use QT to view media and don’t do any creation, it’s probably not necessary.

  2. Geometricus says:

    I bought it only to pull mp3’s off a website that has chanted psalms in Quicktime format. It works great for that! They are “stream only” unless you have QTPro. With QTPro you just right-click and save.

  3. Ed Casey says:

    YES, yes, yes. It’s very good. For the types of work you do, both in video and audio, it’s a must. I would also recommend MPEG StreamClip which is a great conversion tool – takes video and audio and transcodes to almost any format. If you’re interested in more info, email me offline. Best, Ed

  4. Miguel says:

    Father, it is the best $29.99 you will spend on software. Ever.

  5. Andy Brandt says:

    I was never tempted to buy it even though I’m an Apple user and have QT as default player etc. QT is still marginal, most of web sharing and streaming is done in other formats. But still, the question is: what you want it for?

  6. Jared says:

    You should try to find Open Source software for what you are trying to do.

  7. I have to say, QT Pro is well worth the money. It saves a bunch of time when trying to do all kinds of common operations.

  8. Marcos ASPV says:

    Father, as said Jared, you really should try to find Open Source software for what you are trying to do.

    Geometricus, one can do the same thing with Firefox and the FlashGot plug-in which are both free.

    I suggest VLC ( ) for open source software if you choose to go that way.
