The new QuickTime 7 Player not only delivers startling quality, but it's easier to use than ever. It requires no set up for content that streams over the network. Instead, QuickTime 7 Player automatically determines your system's connection speed and chooses the highest quality stream for the amount of bandwidth you have available. And if you ever lose a connection while watching streaming video, QuickTime 7 Player automatically reconnects. Now, that's convenience.

Do you think great video deserves great audio? We do, too. And QuickTime 7 Player delivers truly outstanding multi-channel audio. In fact, it provides you with up to 24 channels of audio, turning your home office into a home theater. Pop in a movie or video game that features surround sound and prepare to be amazed at the heightened audio experience you'll enjoy on your computer equipped with surround-sound speakers. A really good sport, QuickTime 7 Player supports a wide-range of industry-standard audio formats, including AIFF, WAV, MOV, MP4 (AAC only) and AAC/ADTS.

If your one who uses iTunes then you have Quicktime installed on your computer. The Quicktime plugin is nice for sites that require Quicktime but as an overall player there are better options like VLC Player. There are certain products that do require Quicktime and won't detect the Quicktime Alternatives as Quicktime anymore. iTunes is one of them that no longer recognizes Quicktime Alternatives as Quicktime itself being installed.

It's one of those you probably need it even if you don't want it type things. So you install it because it's better safe than sorry.

I would never recommend Quicktime except for the fact a lot of things call for it. You can see if the alternatives work for you then only install Quicktime if needed.
