2. Software Overview
Apple QuickTime Player is a free media player bundled with macOS. It allows users to play most common audio and video files, including .MOV, .MP4, .MP3, and .WAV files.
Using QuickTime Player, you can open and play just about every media file you encounter, whether it's audio, video, or even a series of still images. The player uses H.264 video compression to play videos in vibrant HD, and its simple user interface makes playing and sharing media a breeze.
QuickTime Player also allows users to record their own audio and video. You can record audio using a microphone, record video using your computer's camera, and even create a screen recording using QuickTime Player.
If you’re an Apple user, QuickTime Player is one of your best options for audio and video playback. It supports an impressive selection of media files and, thanks to its slick user interface, is quite easy to use. The fact that QuickTime Player comes pre-installed on Macs seals the deal.
NOTE: QuickTime Player was previously available for Windows, but Apple no longer supports the Windows versions of QuickTime Player.
