Rumor: Free full screen to come to QuickTime Player

QuickTime Player's lack of fullscreen playback (without ponying up the cash for a Pro license, that is) has long been an unnecessary annoyance. Sure, you could always use some sort of AppleScript hack (e.g. osascript -e 'tell application "QuickTime Player" to present front movie scale screen') to get around that, or watch your videos in Front Row for that matter, but there never was a good reason why the free player shouldn't be able to play using the full screen using a normal menu option. Now, according to Victor Agreda Jr, our TUAW man on the spot at WWDC, that limitation will be no more. "The next version of QT," he writes, "doesn't need the Pro version to play fullscreen." And we at TUAW add: it's about time!
