Quicktime is a multimedia framework you can use to view and work with digital video, media clips, music, sound, animation, and interactive panoramic images. Depending on the operating system your computer uses; you may need to download an older or previous version of Quicktime to have a compatible version. The latest version of Quicktime is famous for not working properly on some systems, and for taking several attempts to uninstall if you need to uninstall the program.
Since Apple developed QuickTime, all Apple systems have QuickTime pre-installed when you purchase your Mac computer, and you can download QuickTime for Windows systems either as a single application, or bundled with iTunes.
If you run an earlier Mac operating system than Mac OS 10.4.11, you will definitely need to download a previous version of QuickTime as the current release is not compatible with the earlier versions of the Mac operating system. Mac OS 6.0 to 6.0.5 need Version 2.0 of QuickTime, and any Mac system up to 7.0.1 will need the older version of QuickTime 2.5.
If you run Mac 7.1 to 8.1, the older version of QuickTime 4.0.3 is the latest compatible version you can download. Mac OS 8.6 to 9.2.2 users can download the previous Version 6.0.0 of QuickTime, while if you use Mac OS 10.1.5, version 6.3.1 of QuickTime will be compatible with your operating system.  The previous version of Quicktime 7.5 is compatible with Mac OS 10.3.9.
Previous versions of QuickTime are compatible with the older versions of Windows, with only Windows XP and Windows Vista compatible with the latest version of QuickTime. If you run Windows 95, the latest version of QuickTime you can download is the older Version 5.0.5. Windows NT 4.0 users can download any previous version of QuickTime until Version 6.1.
If you use Windows 98 or Windows ME operating systems, the previous version of QuickTime 6.5.2 is the version that is compatible with these systems. The latest version of QuickTime is not compatible with Windows 2000, so you will need to download a previous version up until version 7.1.6 of QuickTime.
QuickTime is a program that is relatively easy to install and to use to view and manage all types of multimedia files on your computer. However, Apple only provides compatibility with the latest computer operating systems for each release of QuickTime. If you have a computer that is more than one year old, you will probably need to download a previous version of QuickTime to ensure the program is compatible with your computer’s operating system.
