QuickTime

You learned in Hour 1, “A Tour of Mac OS X,” that QuickTime is one of Mac OS X’s imaging components. By using its technology, system applications can support reading or writing many different image formats. You might know that QuickTime is used to play digital media, both from within a Web browser and as an application on your desktop. In the first half of this hour, we look at using QuickTime 6.

QuickTime supports most common digital media formats, including those for movies, MP3 files, WAV files, images, and interactive applications. QuickTime 6 also supports MPEG-4, the global standard for multimedia, which is designed to deliver high-quality video using smaller file sizes. You can learn more about the supported formats by visiting Apple’s QuickTime specification page at http://www.apple.com/quicktime/products/qt/specifications.html.
