Apple unlocks full-screen QuickTime playback, releases iTunes 7.3.1In addition to a minor iTunes fix, Apple on Wednesday unleashed an update to its QuickTime media player software that lets users view videos in full-screen mode without a purchase upgrade.
The Cupertino-based company said QuickTime 7.2 includes a new version of QuickTime Player that unlocks support for viewing videos in full-screen — a feature which was previously available only through a $30 QuickTime Pro license.
QuickTime 7.2 also bundles "updates to the H.264 codec" and numerous bug fixes, Apple said. It's available as 51.4MB download for Mac users and a 19.3MB download for Windows users.
Meanwhile, Apple also released iTunes 7.3.1, which "addresses a minor problem with iTunes 7.3 accessing the iTunes Library."
iTunes 7.3.1 is available as a 33.8MB download for Mac users and a 47.6MB download for Windows users.
