Understanding QuickTime and QuickTime Pro

Apple's QuickTime is the technology that your Mac uses to handle time-synchronized data. Time-synchronized data simply means data that must be managed so that its components remain “in sync” with each other. For example, when you're playing digital video, the video image must remain in sync with the sound track. When you're watching an animation or video, sound effects need to occur at the correct moments.

Since its introduction, Apple's QuickTime has been one of the most successful multimedia standards on any platform. In fact, it's been so successful that it is also widely used on Windows computers; QuickTime movies on Windows play the same way that they do on the Mac. QuickTime has also been widely adopted on the Web. Many Web sites serve video and animation files as QuickTime movies.
