QuickTime Alternative Review

Tina de Pierre
Plays back QuickTime MOV files without the need of QuickTime itself
A review of QuickTime Alternative by Tina de Pierre

QuickTime Alternative is a free and very lightweight program which can be used to play QuickTime MOV and QT files without the need to install that bloated and often buggy software by Apple. It supports several web browsers like IE and Firefox.

The codec included in the package includes several popular open source projects including Windows Media Player Classic and the required QuickTime Codecs, DirectShow filter and the relevant plug-ins for your web browser.

The installation package does not contain any interface as it really is just a codec pack enabling the playback of MOV files. You may however access the configuration options which can modify audio preferences like direct sound, sound output rate/size/channels and more.

In a nutshell, QuickTime Alternative really is just that and is a really lightweight alternative to being forced to run bloated software which often nags and slows your system down.

QuickTime Alternative features and highlights:
  • Media Player Classic
  • QuickTime Codecs
  • QuickTime DirectShow filter
  • QuickTime plugin for Internet Explorer
  • QuickTime plugin for Opera/Mozilla/Netscape
  • QuickTime Control Panel
  • Extra plugins for QuickTime
