I just used it last night.  It crapped out.  Fine, quality software.
Crapped out after loading two plugins to render an MPEG-2 file.


Did you buy the QuickTime MPEG-2 component or try to use a third party plug-in?

And when you say "render," were you encoding a file or just trying to play one?

Apple's MPEG-2 encoder is included with Final Cut Studio as part of the DVD Studio Pro 4 application.

However, I did not load the latest version, so the damn webpage wouldn't let
me download or stream the file you pointed me to.  Not being a fanboy of
Apple, and not wanting to actually work to remove the many layers of crap
that Apple bundles into the "free" download, I couldn't view the file.
Tough shit.

Sounds like a sob story to me.

I have at least five media players on my computer (Windows Media, VLC, Real,
Divx, QuickTime).  Real and QuickTime I almost never use, nor have a need to

Apparently you do not create content.


P.S. You can download the current version here without iTunes


After this is installed, try using the "Enter Full Screen" command under the View menu.
