Subject: Tech: Quick Time Player alarm setting
From: MGM·Lion

My Mac "Quick Time Player" will produce an alarm-clock sounder. But nowhere in its preferences, or in general Applications, can I find any guidance as to how to set it.

Anyone, please?

Many thanks, Rags. But, tho this could make a good waker-up [my wife has a similar mini-device which plays a CD], it doesn't explain how to trigger the alarm-bell system which is part of Quick Time Player, which is what I am actually seeking ~~ not necessarily for morning waking, but for shorter-term necessities: the other night, when I posted this question, I had wanted at 1830 hrs to remind myself of a job I had to do at 2000; an accessible mini-reminder device would have been v useful, & I assumed my Mac must have some such. But, tho a search revealed this alarm on the QTP, I could find no means to set & trigger it.

Hence this post

Michael, is it on a computer or a hand held device?

It was online, found on Quick Time Player. Can't find it again instantly, but think I might just have found some alternatives by googling further. Will come back if they do not succeed. meanwhile, many thanks for your help, ~r~

No, but I have relocated it. Went into Help in header-menu of Quick Time Player & searched for 'alarm'; which has brought up a pop-up on my desktop, a black with white lettering little app headed Alarm Clock Bell.caf, with one of those switch-on/off triangle-on-its-side thingies* that you get when you get up any youtube vid or whevs, which when switched to 'on', i.e the two vertical parallel lines instead of the ► , will play a volume-controllable bell sound.

What I am seeking is some way of setting this device; so far unsuccessfully.

There are MANY...MANY better places ... that embrace Mac newbies ... than Mudcat.

Given the choice between MAC Id-Jets ...or UK pathetics ... well it is a toss up.

I was looking for a similar computer alarm clock and downloaded Pester. Very easy to use. You can set it to go off in X minutes, or at a particular time.

You've probably got cron with OSX. It could be used to play a sound or pop up a message at a given time.

I am sincerely sorry to offend "Steve Jobs" and his lack of documentation.

A "c-ch-k-ka - zillion" alarm settings are available - in EVERY software configuration."

Let us go back to the basics:
What platform - your processor and memory and HD?
What is your system - operating software - what date and upgrades?
Why?? You need to time a three-minute-UK-egg...or are expecting your next supervisor's drop-in.

IF - "John in Kansas" has not responded (he logs in every 4 hours around the clock 24/7 365 a year....

Sincerly,
Gargoyle

You are BS (an Idjet) if one of the clones does not MOVE YOU .... well ... you are on Mudcat.
