Rick ChurchillI cannot find any way of hiding the transport panel in QuickTime Player (v10.5). At present it lies over any text I put on the screen at this location. The video is in .mov form and the window set to Full Screen. I attached the MacBook to a decent size screen by an HDMI cable but will be using the same cable to a projector for a presentation. No matter where I put the cursor or how long I wait, it and the transport panel do not disappear.
The only way of removing the controls is to exit Full Screen and place the cursor at the top which reveals the menu and traffic light/movie title strips. These remain with the cursor and look very amateurish. I would have expected there to be a hide switch in Preferences like there is in Widows Media Player Options but strangely there is no Preferences item in the menus. I found the following paragraph on the internet but I do not understand the terms “keyed for Pro use” and the “Properties window” and “changing the….. controller type”. (The .mov file properties window has no controller type).
"The QT 7 media player window normally displays the controls at all times. However, when keyed for "Pro" use, you can go to the "Properties" window and change the "Presentation" movie controller type to the "None Movie Controller" setting. In this setting all playing modes other than "Full" screen mode display the player with title bar above the viewing area but without side frame or controls under the display. If you are using the "Full" screen mode for your presentation, then you can open the "Preferences" window to the "Full Screen" tab and deselect display of the "full-screen controls." In both cases you will have to either use menu options to start/stop playback or double-click the display screen to start playback and single-click the display screen to stop playback manually. (NOTE: In the first instance the property setting is/can be saved to the file itself while in the second the setting is saved as a QT 7 Player preference to the player itself.)"
Can anyone assist me?
