9. System Preferences > QuickTime

QuickTime

The settings in the QuickTime panel affect the way movies are played back on your Mac, including movies that stream to you from a Web page and movies that you watch using QuickTime Player (Chapter 15).

You don’t have to touch most of these options, but here are a few worth tweaking:

  • Register. Fill in the blanks to upgrade to QuickTime Pro; see Chapter 15.

  • Browser. These settings control how your Web browser’s QuickTime plug-in works with streaming video. “Play movies automatically,” for example, tells the plug-in to start playing movies as soon as they begin downloading, rather than wait for the entire movie to download first. (If you have a dial-up Internet connection, you’ll probably want this turned off to keep the incoming movie from stuttering.)
