QuickTime Alternative is a smaller program which allows you to play QuickTime files without having to install Apple’s official QuickTime Player. You can use any media player in conjunction with QuickTime Alternative to play mov, qt, and 3gp.
QuickTime Alternative is quick and easy to install, uses no background processes, and is a small file size, so it does not take up a heap of memory space on your computer.
If you run Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, and ME computer operation systems, you will need to install a previous version of QuickTime Alternative as Version 1.56 is the last version that supports the codec for these computer operating systems. QuickTime Alternative Version 1.90 is the oldest version to support Windows 2000.
If you do not have Apple’s QuickTime Media Player, you can install any version of QuickTime Alternative in order to play QuickTime movies and audio files. Many people do not want all features of the Apple QuickTime program, especially as the full version uses a lot of computer memory space (see the bloatware blog post). However, downloading a version of QuickTime Alternative will enable you to view any QuickTime files that webpage masters have installed on web pages.
This means that downloading QuickTime Alternative allows you to view web pages exactly as designed. QuickTime Alternative supports all sorts of browser programs, including Internet Explorer, Chrome, Netscape, Opera, Seamonkey, and Firefox.
Older versions of the QuickTime Alternative include a DirectShow filter which enables your computer to view QuickTime files on any media player, as well as playing files on Media Player Classic. The latest versions of QuickTime Alternative do not include this filter, so downloading the previous versions makes sense.
If you want a quick and efficient method to play mov files on your computer, without installing the additional features, and bugs, that are inherent in Apple’s QuickTime software, you definitely should download any previous version of QuickTime Alternative. QuickTime Alternative offers you the features you want without the hassles, and without using too much space or vital resources on your computer.
