Learn how to install and setup the QuickTime Player with this tutorial. The player is a free multimedia player. You can use it to view many kinds of files, including video, audio, still images, graphics, and virtual reality (VR) movies. QuickTime supports the most popular formats on the Internet for news, sports, education, movie trailers, and other entertainment. QuickTime is also a multimedia architecture that other applications can leverage. Some of the most popular software—such as iTunes, iMovie, and Final Cut Pro from Apple, as well as many third-party programs—uses the QuickTime architecture for important multimedia functions. These applications require QuickTime to be installed in order to function properly.

A powerful multimedia technology with a built-in media player, the player lets you view Internet video, HD movie trailers, and personal media in a wide range of file formats. And it lets you enjoy them in remarkably high quality. With its simple design and easy-to-use controls, the player makes everything you watch even more enjoyable.

No matter what you’re watching or where you’re watching it, QuickTime technology makes it all possible. The player features advanced video compression technology called H.264 to deliver brilliant, crisp HD video using less bandwidth and storage. So you’ll experience pristine video quality wherever you watch your movies or videos.
