QuickTime full screen script

from MacWorld:

QuickTime in full screen without the Pro version? Windows users still have recourse to iTunes and VideoLAN.

"Launch Script Editor and enter this:

Save the script as an application. Now open the movie you want to view in full screen in QuickTime Player. Double-click the AppleScript application you just created and your movie will play at full screen."

Here's the script text:

tell application "QuickTime Player"
present front movie scale screen
end tell

Be sure to have a movie when you launch your app. As in the Player, Command+1 views at 100%, Command+2 doubles, Command+3 is fullscreen, and Command+0 plays at 50%.
