Previous versions of Windows do not have native support for the applications that use the H.264 codecs. That makes it impossible to play MOV and QT files on Windows or media content on the web browser without using the QuickTime plugin. With this application, you can bring back the power of QuickTime to your Windows and provide support for H.264 codec-based media files.
The application is lightweight and works by copying the codecs that are required to play new media files types on the system. That is why it does not have an extensive application interface except the one for configuring the QuickTime options. From the settings, the user can configure audio reference, use safe mode, direct sound, select the music synthesizer, and many other options.
After installing this program, the Windows Media Player Classic is upgraded with the capabilities to handle media files such as MOV, QT, and MP3. The program even takes over as the default media player application for these file types.
QuickTime Alternative is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in video players category and is available to all software users as a free download.
