Edit Your Videos in iPhoto

The iPod nano description on the site says, "On a Mac, you can browse and edit your videos in iPhoto, too.

Well, not really. If you control click on a video from within iPhoto '09, a Quicktime X window pops up. The only thing you can do with Quicktime X and video is trim off the ends. Cut, Copy and Paste is not included with Quicktime X.

You can still get those features, but you need to install Quicktime 7 Pro off the Mac OS X Snow Leopard install disks.

I hope this gets resolved in an update to Quicktime.


  1. QT X is a rip. It's an albatross to get you to purchase QT Pro 7.6.3 which cannot be upgraded at this point. Sure it has more features, but talk about a bait and switch!

  2. At the time of this writing, there is no such thing as Quick Time Pro version X. You might be lured into thinking that there is, and opt to ad more than the features offered by purchasing a Pro Key. If you do that, you will have to install an earlier version of Quick Time (namely Quick Time v. 7) in order to register your "key"... but beware, because you cannot register a Pro Key in The Quick Time Player that Came with the Snow Leopard installation.
