Access Hidden QuickTime X Preferences
Tuesday, September 8, 2009 - 2:50 AM EST
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.
