Chapter 9. QuickTime > QuickTime 3.0 Basics

QuickTime 3.0 Basics

Playing back QuickTime 3.0 movies requires the QuickTime browser plug-in (version 2.0 or later). This plug-in is available free from the QuickTime Web site (http://www.quicktime.apple.com).

QuickTime Pro

With QuickTime 3.0, Apple made QuickTime freely available to both Mac and Windows users—but QuickTime 3.0 Pro is available for an extra charge. QuickTime 3.0 Pro adds even more functionality to the basic edition. It's actually the same version as the standard edition except it includes an encryption key that unlocks the advanced features, so if you decide that you need the advanced features, you can pay Apple $30 for them—cheap, when you consider all the functionality that QuickTime adds to a computer.

What are these advanced features? They include full-screen broadcast-quality playback, streaming media playback, editing movies and audio, saving audio and movie files from Web pages for later viewing, preparation and compression of QuickTime media, and creating QuickTime content slide shows.
