Show full-screen QuickTime movies with Salling Clicker Apps
If you have a Palm or Sony Ericsson phone, and were thinking of purchasing QuickTime Pro, rather look at Salling Clicker. If you hit "full screen" in Clicker, regardless of whether you have QuickTime Pro, your movies run fullscreen. Of course you could also just run Fullscreen Movie Player 2.0 instead.

[robg adds: You could also use the AppleScript posted in a previous hint ... and keep in mind that there are many other benefits to QT Pro than just full screen movies; I use it all the time to piece snippets together and add basic effects ... and since Salling Clicker is $14.95, you're really only saving $15.00.]

Clicker is only $9.95 for phones; it's $14.95 for Palm devices. I have no idea why, though.

Simple: The development on the Palm was more work.

My two cents... Sailing Clicker is well worth the money. After I got my 17PB and Sony Ericsson T68i, I downloaded the evaulation copy which allows 30 clicks... and promptly got my credit card out on the 31st click.

I love this software. So far I've used it for:
  • Giving Keynote presentations at work
  • Listening to music while doing chores around the house (PB going through the TV/stereo)
  • Watching Family Guy DVDs at work during lunch (PB going through TV)
  • Watching movies on vacation
  • Making them drool

One warning, Bluetooth seems to eat up battery life pretty quick. I like to keep the phone & computer connected while I'm working because otherwise I miss incoming calls when I've got the headphones on (love the onscreen alert), so I got an OEM charger/stand for the phone for less then $20 (from discountcell.com I believe).

I'm still blown away by how cool this solution is. More and more the Powerbook truly is my 'digital lifestyle hub', and now I've got a remote!

The same thing is possible with Romeo, freeware program that has much of the same functionality as Salling Clicker. I like the interface to Romeo better as well.

Hmm, Romeo does only half, is not as expandable as Clicker and.. the interface... have you looked at Clicker 2.0?
Have you used it?

VideoLAN Client (VLC) is a free player that will play a number of media types, including many that QuickTime won't play, and has a full-screen mode. It will also stream and transcode media files and play DVDs, but those are just added benefits!

Yes, I realize that VLC does not do anything like Salling Clicker does, but the hint didn't mention anything about Salling Clicker's functionality other than full-screen presentation, which I'm speaking to.

BTW, if you're wanting to rip your DVDs to DivX, use DVDibbler! There's a bit of a learning curve, but it does really great rips. I've been using it to throw movies on my PowerBook so I don't have to haul all my DVDs around when I'm traveling. If you're doing this, though, go for a 60 or 80 GB hard drive! :)
