I pray that there is an answer to this question. I watch videos on the net. I love to watch the wmv format videos with realplayer or windows because you can make the video fit the full screen. But now alot of videos are in an mpg format and its a quarter size of the screen in quicktime and they suck! Whats the solution when the videos I want to see are usually in quick time format? How can I blow it up to fit the screeN. Im convinced that I cant but hope I am wrong. Please keep in mind I am not very computer savy.

It looks like Apple issued an upgrade to address this a couple of months ago. Here's the link.

Hi chugg.

Did you click on the download tab at the top of the page, and then choose QT 7.2?

Yeah, it's designed for Quicktime 7 so maybe you have an old version and it doesn't look like it will work with an old version.

I've never been keen on Quicktime or RealPlayer, they usually install lots of rubbish, I use their alternatives Real Alternative and Quicktime Alternative both applicatons play all of Apple's files and Real media with no problem, and take up less of a footprint on your HDD space. Oh yeah both apps are free too.
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

I am re visiting this question because I am still having the same problem. The movies I want to view I cannot get to a full screen in quicktime. I use firefox for my browser. How can I get all of my video files to play in windows media and not quicktime? I cant delete quicktime because i need itr for itunes. I tried to adjust the settings to play all files in media but it just goes back to its original settings. This is killing me for work.

Since you mentioned FF, there is Windows Media Player Plugin for FF, which might help. Beyond that, I use neither QT nor WMP. I use the Media Player Classic that comes with the XP Codec Pack. Others should be along to help you further.

I still cant figure out how to save videos. I downloaded this and now i cant save videos at all. How could I switch to another player that will save videos and will show a full screen?
