My first impression of Quicktime 10.0 is that it can suck my salty balls. My favorite feature of Quicktime Pro, the ability to transcode to other formats, has been fuxored beyond all recognition. Boo!

Hey look, it's simpler now!

Simply lobotomized!

If you have Quicktime Pro, don't allow it to be "upgraded" away.

Thank you for the warning. I still have QT Pro 7 (probably because I turned off the intrusive update feature that was prompting me to install iTunes on a daily basis). The main feature I need is the ability to convert movs into looping movs.

Oooh looping movs. Gotta try that. I use it to do lower res 60p files from 720p60. Usually in mp4, which is more universal.

Second impression: boo, hiss! Unless I'm missing something, they have eliminated the jog/shuttle/scroll bar at the bottom. Just gone. The only thing I use quicktime for is 2 minute videos of dancing cats, so I don't need proper controls (say, to avoid using fast forward to go through 90 minute videos). Hellooo VLC.

The few online videos of mine I've posted are all in Quicktime. I used it because it seemed to have better plugin support for browsers on both Apple and Windows and it wasn't Flash. Is that still the case, do you think? Any thoughts on a good "universal" video type for videos not on YouTube or Vimeo?

I haven't really worried about plug-in support, so I'm not up on the topic. I like mp4 as a wrapper because it's an mpeg standard. It will hold h.264, which is the main form of video encoding I do. Quicktime supports it, so any browser that has a QT plug-in can play an mp4.

Both of my video cameras product h.264 inside a mov wrapper, so that's what I have the most of. But with QT pro I can output mp4 without any transcoding of the 264 video.

The scroll bar is still there. Hard to see, but still there.
