Why QT Pees Me Off
Authored by: Shane Palmer on Oct 19, '06 09:36:25PM
Actually there are a few things you could do using the tools given to you by Apple.

I have created a fairly simple Automator script that allows me to Control-Click on a QuickTime movie in the Finder and select Present Movie Full Screen. You could then give this away to your customers and let them install it on their Mac, but it would require Mac OS X 10.4 or later since Automator doesn't come with earlier OS X versions.

On the flip side of the coin Apple has several example scripts on their website (http://www.apple.com/applescript/quicktime/) one of which is called "Save As Presentation File" which sets each movie file dragged onto it to automatically open in full screen presentation mode and start playing regardless of whether or not you have QuickTime Pro. It stores the settings in the movie file itself so you could prep your movies in this way before giving them out to your customers.
