Borderless QuickTime Playback in Snow Leopard

Jun 4, 2007 - Leave a Comment


Wouldn’t it be nice for QuickTime to be borderless? In Mac OS X you can accomplish this with a little bit of a trick, so if you’re on Mac OS X Snow Leopard or before with Quick Time on those releases you can make a few adjustments for borderless playback.

MurphyMac has yet another great screencast covering a unique hack to allow QuickTime to playback without borders, creating a cool floating movie effect. Admittedly, the hack is probably not the most useful for the typical user, but it does make for some some great eye candy and could be really useful for presentations, screen demonstrations, or just plain showing off.

MurphyMac: Borderless QuickTime Playback

Even as a long time Mac user, I learn something new everyday.

Keep in mind that new versions of QuickTime default to borderless playback of videos, so if you’re on a modern system software version you would not need to do this to get borderless playback in Quicktime for Mac.
