The other day we heard of a professor who could not play a movie which he purchased on iTunes via a projector output from a new MacBook. This was due to an HDCP issue in Quicktime which disallowed him to output protected content through the new Mini DisplayPort on the updated MacBooks. Apple has now fixed this issue with the Quicktime 7.5.7 Update.
The Update states the following: This update is recommended for owners of MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro with Mini DisplayPort. The update addresses an issue where some standard definition purchases from the iTunes Store do not play on some external displays.
It’s great to see Apple respond so quickly to the issue of playing our own content. This is sure to make many new MacBook owners happy. You can get the update via software update or download it from their page.
