Just did the update. Kinda big but whatever..

Quicktime had been very average for years but the last couple versions have been great. Even the free version has a few decent new features.

I have always liked Quicktime, even when I was a Windows user. I was also happy they finally added fullscreen support to the free version a couple of updates ago. It was silly that it took so long, but better late that never.

I fully agree about adding the full screen feature to the free version taking too long. For a while that was pretty much the only reason I used VLC.

I prefer to use quicktime as my main video player and load it with codecs.

I hope this isn't just me. I tried to watch a movie with QT tonight and it pegged my CPU to 100% and the video was playing choppy! I just threw the file in VLC, it played it like a champ.

So much for this update. I wonder if it's not playing nice with Perian or some other codecs. . . Rolling Eyes

I seem to be all good. What format was the movie that pegged it?

Nothing big. A Handbrake rip in a .mp4 container. Oddly enough, tried another movie ripped the same exact way and it only used up about 30%, which is about normal. . .
