What is QuickTime?
QuickTime is an Apple software primarily used for multimedia playback, even for objects that offer some degree of panoramic function and interactivity. To put this into perspective, it is helpful to use analogies: QuickTime is to Mac computers as Windows Media Player is to Windows; although in terms of features they have their own strengths and weakness, QuickTime offers more native support for a variety of formats than Windows Media Player, and offers other advanced tools that are simply not present in even the latest version of WMP. Notably, it also supports high definition H.264 video decoding natively or mobile phone video formats like 3GP and 3GPP, unlike Windows Media Player that needs a third party codec to support these types of videos. Additionally, it can stream media across a network or through the Internet, but it also shares this feature with most modern media players and the WMP.
QuickTime is a free download and fulfills most of the needs of the average consumer, but in case the user needs more tools and features at his disposal he can enter a QuickTime Pro license key anytime, which is purchased from Apple. This unlocks the basic player’s advanced functions.
