QuickTime 7.4.0

QuickTime is software that allows Mac and Windows users to play back audio and video on their computers. QuickTime 7 Player takes advantage of the latest video compression technology. It's called H.264, and it's an important new industry standard that's quickly garnered widespread support. QuickTime 7 Player also supports a wide-range of industry-standard audio formats, including AIFF, WAV, MOV, MP4 (AAC only) and AAC/ADTS. But taking a deeper look, QuickTime is many things: a file format, an environment for media authoring and a suite of applications:

  • QuickTime Player — for playing back audio and video files
  • Browser plug-ins — for viewing media within a web page
  • PictureViewer — for working with still images (Windows only; Preview is available on Mac OS X)
  • MPEG-2 Playback Component — for playing back MPEG-2 content (requires separate purchase)

Why haven't you died already?!?!? What do you need to die, a stake on your heart, a silver bullet, a slap with a trout? WHAT?! :mad:

x264 and Media Player Classic or VLC. Both are a lot better than this, imho.

Because of iTunes. If iTunes didn't need Quicktime to function it may have gone by the wayside a while back. With how many iPods there are out there, that's just about roughly how many machines have Quicktime installed, that and where I work we load Quicktime on all the machines as some of the stuff requires it I guess.

VLC is flawed as skipping forward in x264 (.mkv) files it has problems doing.

thats why i uninstalled VLC and installed The KMPlayer.
