QTSpaces: Tile, play four movies at once

2 April 2012 1,448 views No Comment

Here’s a nifty little application that allows you to play four QuickTime movies or clips seamlessly at one time, displaying them proportionally in the available space or scaling (stretching) each to occupy a full quarter of your screen. Each quadrant has its own player and volume controls, which can be hidden at will.

With QTSpaces, you can save each four movie set as a playlist, which is displayed in an always on top palette. A separate always on top playback controller can also be displayed.

You can display any one of the clips fullscreen by pressing 1, 2, 3, 4 and switch to the next (previous) playlist by pressing Command + [ ]. It’s all pretty simple and slick.

A very nice feature, especially for those of us with a second monitor, is that fullscreen only fills the display where the app resides versus Lion’s punitive approach.

QTSpaces accepts clips dragged from the Finder or iTunes, which greatly simplifies things. Lastly, however long (or short) the clip or movie you drop into a particular quadrant loops automatically.

And, best of all? QTSpaces is free.
