Avoid delays when navigating iTunes video podcasts
Authored by: PopMcGee on Dec 22, '05 06:34:54AM

This is more an issue because iTunes has some big performance deficits here. What I do (requires QT Pro): select a podcast, hold Cmd and press R, down arrow and F. Now you've got yourself the move playing with QT Player, with nice responsive controls.

I can't seem to get your keyboard shortcut to do anything except open a new Finder window with the video selected. Can you elaborate on your suggestion? I have QTPro, btw.

Cmd-R reveals the podcast in the Finder
Cmd-Down (or Cmd-O) opens the podcast in the default player
Cmd-F plays a movie in Full Screen mode in QT Pro

The problem is that the default player for most podcasts is probably iTunes and not QT. Those shortcuts should work just as described if you change the default player to QT.
