Apple fixes SD HDCP issues with QuickTime update

November 26, 2008

Apple made available Quicktime 7.5.7 for select computers late in the day yesterday, an update intended to fix the inability to play SD content purchased from the iTunes store on an external display. This was an issue that we first reported on last week when it came to our attention that the new MacBooks and MacBook Pros seemingly came with High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection, lovingly known as HDCP for short, on their mini-DisplayPorts. Needless to say, the Internet at large was very unhappy about this revelation, and Apple even got blasted by the Electronic Frontier Foundation because of it.
