The Turbo.264 HD is a hardware video encoding stick that seems to support just about every video format under the sun, and can convert that video for use on various devices, in high definition, much faster than your Mac can do that on it’s own. We open the item up in this episode of Unboxing Live!, and whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone who works with video, or even transcodes video for use on their or other portable device.

iTunes License Agreement

Just a quick public service announcement to all our peeps out there, because we care. I know many people don’t read license agreements, but in case you are both:

  1. An user
  2. A terrorist

We need to make sure you know that you are not allowed to use iTunes, the digital music and video jukebox software, to aid in the “development, design, manufacture or production of missiles, or nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.”

We clear on that?

Quicktime Goes Full Screen for Free

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Apple, PC / Laptop, Software

Quicktime 7.2 UpdateWe sometimes use Quicktime on sites when we don’t have a choice, but we really prefer our Microsoft Media Player for its, let’s face it, $0.00 price tag. Now Apple has decided that its 7.2 player will now be able to do one of the things its competitor does, offer full screen viewing. The new version also updates to an H.264 codec and promises a few bug fixes. You can choose between a 19.3MB download for Windows or 51.5MB for Macs.
We appreciate the crumbs but we are still not certain we are ready to pay $30.00 for their Quicktime Pro because we can still head on down to our nearest electonics store and pick up some inexpensive editing software that can do everything Quicktime can, and more, for about the same price.
