"Love it. Great alternative to cruddy Apple software."

January 27, 2013  |  By Mergatroid Mania

 |  Version: QuickTime Alternative 3.1.1

Pros

You can watch quicktime movies without all the garbage itunes crap Apple forces you to bog your computer down with.

Cons

That people still use quicktime at all. Who wants to have itunes installed just to watch quicktime movies? Thank goodness for this software.
Watch out for the crap at the beginning of the install. There are two or three programs you will want to avoid installing (tool bars and other garbage).

Summary

Works perfectly. Lets you view quicktime movies without the hassle and wast of space that is iTunes.

Thankyou to the authors.

"Could not use asking for a registration code :O/"

June 14, 2011  |  By Tech_Guru21

 |  Version: QuickTime Alternative 3.1.1

Pros

Can not use.

Cons

Can not use, asking for a registration code.

Summary

If this is free software why would there be a registration code?

"Solid program, but iTunes doesn't recognize it"

January 10, 2011  |  By britgrif

 |  Version: QuickTime Alternative 3.1.1

Pros

This is a solid program that takes up little space and doesn't include extraneous programs like Apple's ridiculous bundles.

Cons

As I was de-bloating the iTunes software bundle, I tried to see if iTunes would recognize QTA as a valid substitute since iTunes requires QuickTime to run. Sadly, it did not. This makes me more annoyed with Apple than anything, however.

"Great way to watch QT movies"

April 28, 2010  |  By mrobinson52

 |  Version: QuickTime Alternative 3.1.1

Pros

You do not have to put up with the annoyances of Quicktime in order to watch QT movies.

Cons

None that I can find so far.

Summary

If you do not like the fact that Quicktime sets itself up to auto-launch at setup, or if you do not like the vulnerabilities that Quicktime has that Apple is slow to patch, this is for you! It is also great for those of us who generally do not like having Apple products on our Windows machines.

"FREE & FAST DOWNLOAD....BEST Q.T. SUBSTITUTE, EVER !!!"

April 21, 2010  |  By rocketcab

 |  Version: QuickTime Alternative 3.1.1

Pros

At merely 18.2 MBs, this FREE "QuickTime Alternative" is a third the size of the Apple QuickTime Player (77.3 MBs), downloads faster and is much more responsive than its slow and cumbersome predecesor.

Cons

I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS PRODUCT.

Summary

The FREE "QuickTime Alternative" is but a fraction of the (megabyte) size of Apple's official version, yet downloads much faster and is a lot more responsive than any other QuickTime substitute, to date.

I'm very pleased with its performance and.... I'm still puzzled as to why the C-Net editors favored Apple's official QuickTime product over this more lightweight, more versatile, far more superior substitute.

P.S. If it matters to anyone, My (2007) HP Pavillion desktop runs Windows Vista Basic as my O.S.

"Good product"

November 28, 2009  |  By timspear

 |  Version: QuickTime Alternative 3.0.0

Pros

Lets you watch quicktime movies without installing Apple Quick Time

Cons

Occasionally you have to update it

Summary

Good if you find Apple Quick Time a pain in the arse - all I want to do it to watch a mac vs pc ad occasionally and get the Apple download and they'll nag you to get apple installer and itunes and have three processes running continuously from boot up for ever and ever
