10.5: A couple of Quick Look video tips Desktop
You may know that Quick Look supports video, but did you know that:
  • If you open a video in Quick Look and then close the Quick Look window, as long as you don't open anything else in Quick Look, re-opening the video in Quick Look will resume where you left off.
  • You can select and open multiple videos in Quick Look at once. This basically sets up a video playlist, and the same resume feature applies to these videos. Jump back and forth between the videos, and Quick Look will remember where you were in each!
[robg adds: It's just too bad they took away the full QuickTime controls in both Quick Look and the Finder's Preview column, as you can't fast forward, rewind, or control the volume (other than mute).]

However, you are able to navigate videos, just click in the progress bar. I use this much more often than the actual fast forward or rewind buttons.

Also, if you are watching a video in Quick look, and go to another space (by clicking on a program icon or using the spaces hot key), the video will pause until you return to the space which has the Quick Look window in it. This is provided you don't try to examine something else in quicklook in the other space.
