About QuickTime

Editors Review
QuickTime's codec support is no longer anything special by modern media playback standards, its streaming features are present in virtually all software that can play a video, 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. With QuickTime, users can play a variety of video formats that make use of different codecs, including Apple Lossless, Apple Video, H.264, and many others.

QuickTime users also get QuickTime Player, a multimedia player that allows for playback of files for which QuickTime provides support.

With QuickTime Pro, which can be unlocked via a license key purchased from Apple, users gain access to advanced features such as video transcoding across all formats supported by QuickTime, simple but robust editing features including cut, copy, paste, and merging functions, and saving movies from the web straight to device storage. A QuickTime Pro key costs $29.99 and can be bought from the Apple website.
