Access Hidden QuickTime X Preferences
Tuesday, September 8, 2009
Posted by: Kenan

As many of you know, the new QuickTime X in Snow Leopard doesn't offer much in the way of customization or preferences. There are hidden preferences that can be accessed though, and that's where the QuickTime Player X Preference Pane 1.0 and QuickTime Player X Hidden Preferences Scripts v2.2 are looking to come in and lend a hand. They will give you access to the following preferences:

- Enable autoplay when opening a video file.

- Enable subtitles and closed captioning by default.

- Enable autohide or autoshow for the titlebar and controller, or set a new timeout for the fade function.

- Allow simultaneous video recordings through the built-in iSight camera.

- Keep Full Screen Mode active even when switching applications.

- Change the corners of the player to round.

It should be noted there is a known bug in the QuickTime Player X Preference Pane 1.0, but it doesn't seem to cause any trouble. I would give either one a shot if you're looking to access any of these preferences.

I wonder if there is a way of auto-hiding the controls and keeping the black bar across the top? I don't really care for totally minimalistic video windows. I don't even like using them in VLC.

I find this funny i thought for sure apple would give us the features that we want and instead we are having to use scripts again. oh well at least they work nice while they last.
