Apple QuickTime icon Apple's default Mac OS X multimedia player that features support for advanced video technology like the H.264 video compression standard and a lean and intuitive interface

Multimedia content is an important part of your day to day activity on your computer. Whether you are watching movies, videos sent by friends or online resources, a good media player proves to be indispensable.

Apple’s QuickTime player has been the default Mac media player for a long time and is able to open most of the popular file formats. The QuickTime player is also able to open images and audio files and constantly demonstrates its efficiency.

The standard QuickTime version provides basic media playing tools: play/pause, fast forward/rewind, go to the beginning/end of the file buttons and a scrollbar for adjusting the volume. Additionally, you can view a timeline bar, both for videos and audio files: click or drag the playhead to browse the content.

The QuickTime player window can be easily resized via drag and drop while the video continues playing. The player can also show subtitles and the Content Guide, when available. QuickTime keeps a list of recent items in order to provide quick access at a later time. From the Preferences window you can easily adjust the list length (goes up to 50).

QuickTime enables you to play the videos in full screen mode and you can specify the default movie size, the background color, how long should the controls be displayed, the presentation mode (slideshows can be controlled using the arrow keys) and more.

If you choose to upgrade to the QuickTime Pro version, you get access to other tools, such as the possibility to record audio and video files, to open image sequences, to trim the video or add it to movies. Furthermore, you can  put the entire video or only a selection on loop.

Additionally, QuickTime’s architecture is used by other applications that have multimedia functions, such as iMovie, iTunes or Final Cut Pro. As a result, QuickTime must be installed at all times to make sure all your Apple applications work properly.
