More you can get from QuickTime Pro

  • Create and edit videos, including applying special FX
  • Compress videos with new codecs
  • Create slideshows with music
  • Convert images to different formats
  • Watch videos in full-screen
  • Save videos from the web

  • Cropping and resizing of videos

What you can only get from QuickTime free

Part 4: Alternative to QuickTime Pro for Mac

If you own a Mac, QuickTime Pro isn't the only game in town. If you like the idea of QuickTime Pro's features, but not its price tag, and downloading it or getting a serial code for it from elsewhere isn't something you're keen on, there are several good alternatives.

VLC Media Player

The media player is very versatile and can handle a great many different video formats. It allows for full-screen and windowed viewing, It even has Blu-ray support. For playback, it's great, but it lacks the creative and editing features of QuickTime Pro. However, if what you were missing was greater code support and a full-screen mode, it's a great alternative.

MPlayerX

Similar to VLC Media Player, but designed exclusively for the Mac, this media player has all of the playback features of QuickTime Pro, but again without the editing or creating tools. However, it does support full-screen viewing, and is regularly updated with the latest video codecs.

iMovie

iMovie comes bundled with your Mac. It's a simple video editor, and if you want to make a picture slideshow with music, or edit home video or downloaded video, it's a great place to start.

KMPlayer

This media player is compatible with your Mac as well as your iPad or iPhone. It supports many different file formats, as well as full-screen viewing. It lacks the creating and editing capabilities of QuickTime Pro, though.
