I like my Magic Mouse, but I often touch it "incorrectly" while watching a movie in QuickTime Player, and QTP then moves the video position forward or backwards or makes a pause or ... . It can be annoying :-(

I'd like to make my QuickTime Player ignore mouse gestures and touches. Is it possible?

You can try BetterTouchTool that will give you much more control.

There is a setting that will allow you to add per-application rules:

better touch tool settings bettertouchtool

  • I tried to add some gestures for QTPlayer and send random key or take "No Action". It didn't help :-( QTP still does execute its actions. Commented Dec 25, 2010 at 13:23


As Loïc Wolff says BetterTouchTool is a way to disable this horizontal scrolling. I was searching about the same problem and found the solution in this program (BetterTouchTool)
