In 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.

QuickTime 7.2

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.

iTunes 7.3.1

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.
