For anyone not aware, the latest build of Quicktime now has various fullscreen options, including zooming in enough to remove the black bars, which renders this player superfluous.

Since the last QuickTime update you can play video in full-screen without a QT pro license.

It lets you fast forward in full screen much better then quicktime for watching recorded TV Shows. Quicktime in non-fullscreen mode only lets you fast forward 2x this does 4x. Not worth $20 though. It's more like 1 $10 software item.

Don't pay for this! I suggest everyone who want to download this program to try also the free Xinema which will play a movie fullscreen, plus has all these keyboard shortcuts when watching the movie: Space Pause/Resume Esc Stop (exit fullscreen) ? Go 10 seconds forward ? Go 10 seconds back ? Go one minute forward ? Go one minute back ?? Fast forward (2x) ?? Fast forward (3x) ?? Rewind (2x) ?? Rewind (3x) ?L Toggle loop ?F Toggle fill screen 4 Go one frame back 6 Go one frame forward J Jump to specific time Page up Increase sound volume Page down Decrease sound volume Home Set sound volume to maximum End Set sound volume to minimum I suggest also trying the freewares VLC and MPlayer (my player of choice) which can open almost any type of movie and sound file and can be controlled with keyboard shortcuts while playing. My message to the programer: If you release programs that offer less features or functionality than already existing freeware ones, don't make them shareware.

This program simply allows you to zoom in the video to get rid of the black bars on a widescreen movie, any other "features" it brags about are useless. This is NOT worth the money whatsoever. There is no point in even downloading it unless you can't stand the black bars. Then there is the fact that just zooming in on a movie doesn't really work. Since you are just getting the center of the wide view, you miss things that happen when the camera is not pointed directly at them, which is fixed when the movie companies convert a film, since they select the most important part of the frame and zoom in on that. If we watched all movies in just cropped 4:3, we would have a very interesting time dealing with half-faces and strange parts missing. If you just want to play a movie full screen then download VLC, MPlayer or any other alternative, if you really like quicktime and want to play a movie full screen the compile this code in Script Editor and run it as an application when you have a movie open in Quicktime. tell application "QuickTime Player" activate present movie end tell Save it as an application and then simply run it with any movie open in Quicktime. Its that simple.
