QuickTime : Java Glossary

The CurrCon Java Applet displays prices on this web page converted with today’s exchange rates into your local international currency, e.g. Euros, US dollars, Canadian dollars, British Pounds, Indian Rupees… CurrCon requires an up-to-date browser and Java version 1.8, preferably 1.8.0_112. If you can’t see the prices in your local currency, Troubleshoot. Use Firefox for best results.

Apple’s format for streaming video and audio, also a player than works in Macs and PCs (Personal Computers). The current version is 7.7.9 Last revised/verified: 2016-01-28. Apple uses both the words iTunes and QuickTime to refer to the software. The free QuickTime viewer lets you play sound or video in Qui2ckTime format on a Mac or PC (Personal Computer). It is usually bundled with iTunes which manages a library of recordings and allows you to upload them to your iPod. You may need to download additional codecs from third parties to play some files. A codec is a software plug-in that is able to decompress the stream into an audio and/or video signal. Don’t install a codec unless Apple recommends it. It may be malware or poor quality that will mess up your entire machine. If QuickTime fails to play a file, try Winamp, Windows Media Player or RealPlayer.

QuickTime does not buffer correctly. It pauses and jerks and leaps ahead. Further, it won’t go into full screen mode. This is one case where I prefer the Microsoft software. It may have compensating virtues since it is popular on the web. Probably its main virtue is it works on both the Mac and the PC.

The free version handles H.264 and MPEG-4 as well as other common formats. The pro version for $30.00 USD supports full-screen playback, easy editing, H.264/MPEG-4 production and the ability to save movies from the web. MPEG-2 costs yet an additional $20.00 USD .
