About QuickTime

Editors Review
QuickTime doesn't have particularly impressive codec support, its streaming features are passe, and its browser plugin has been rendered obsolete by various web video standards that have superseded the little QuickTime .MOV video players you used to find. However, it's still an essential part of some software, especially iTunes, and it doesn't really affect performance in any way to have it installed, so it's not that big of a deal to install it.
QuickTime is a free multimedia playback framework designed for Mac OS and Windows computers. It lets users play various audio and video formats of different codecs, including Apple Lossless, Apple Video, H.264, and many others.

QuickTime includes a media player called QuickTime Player along with the framework, that allows users to playback any of the formats that QuickTime natively supports.

Updating to QuickTime Pro via a license key purchased from Apple enables advanced features such as video transcoding and exporting to any of QuickTime's supported formats, quick editing features including cut, copy, paste, and merging functions, and saving movies from the web straight to one's computer. A QuickTime Pro key costs $29.99 and can be bought from the Apple website.
