Time elapsed or remaining!

This is Leopard only. This is a very cool tip that I found out on the video podcast. What it does is it lets you toggle between the time elapsed and the time remaining for a video in QuickLook. It is so simple that I don't really know why I didn't figure it out before this. To switch, you simply have to click on the time elapsed. You can click again on the time remaining to switch back. Thanks to for the tip.

wow.. I just figured something out. I use a second, larger monitor with my macbook. And, I'd like to watch avi movies on it occasionally. But, Quicktime doesn't let me watch it in full-screen mode on a secondary monitor, only the primary monitor. But, quicklook lets you do it. Just drag the quicklook window onto the second monitor, and hit full screen.

VLC is also good for second monitor full screen mode

You can choose to display a QuickTime video on the second display. It is possible to choose that in the QuickTime preferences when the second display is hooked up.

Man, I'm such a dork. I never saw that in the preferences.

Thanks MacGeek.
