Agreed in more ways then one. Years ago I purchased and Apple computer that was quickly obsoleted when the next rev rolled out. Apples response was "Buy the new rev"! Like I have that kind of money. the point is that Apple could not care less about it's customers. I install quicktime only as long as I absolutely have to and then take it off. No apple products, period!

QuickTime isn't intrusive. However, you may not know how to control it with regards to your other media platforms. If you don't know how to use a computer, move to the Galapagos for an extended stay away from civilization.

Dr. Parallax, you must be a Mac user or work for Apple. Quicktime IS intrusive. It adds itself to the startup so you have that crappy qttask running even when you tell it not to, it hijacks all the media associations even when you tell it not to, and doesn't put them back after you uninstall it. It's slow, it pops up 'purchase pro version now' all the time, and generally is crap in every conceivable way.

We at Apple spend considerable efforts to ensure that the software we engineer provides the best user experience that we can possibly deliver.
At times it might appear that the interface is more intrusive than you had maybe expected, however during our labs testing it has been proved beyond resonable doubt that this largely derives from the incredibly positive profile Apple has generated with it's customers worldwide, which ensures that when our software is accessed the user is always aware and grateful it is an Apple product, and one that they can rely on.
Of course we constantly strive to deliver a consistent user experience and we have determined through our lab testing that the best way to achieve this consistency is to raise the profile of Quicktime on the users computers, we have found that if we ensure Quicktime always starts with the computer the awareness of Quicktime is enhanced, even when the customer doesn't intend to watch any video content during their session, and installing icons on the desktop and quick launch toolbars go further toward maintaining Apples profile and reputation for quality software.
A positive by-product of our lab tests is the discovery that where we help the user by restricting their choice for alternative products and limit the users ability to 'accidentally' disable Quicktime the profitability of Apple is encouraged, especially where we enhance the user experience by providing additional functionality within Quicktime, but by not charging them for those facilities until they require them we are expanding the customers choice.
Additional capabilities like adding the superb iTunes facilities within the install package by default, only enhances the user experience further and continues to protect Apples long term viability and its capability of delivering similar excellent software well into the future.
I hope this goes some way to allay readers concerns and allow the prodigal consumer to return to the one true Apple.

If what you say is true, then if i use msconfig and remove it from startup, then the application should only exist on my system if i have it installed and personaly executes the program.
But no, the damn thing keeps getting up in the taskbar taking resources i ONLY would want to give if its absolute necessary.
And that is as someone said earlier when there is no other format to show a movie in.

I belive apple pay big money to make companies discard other players to make quictime the only possibility.

Steve Jobs, if that's really you up above, bite me. Your QT insists on playing my audio files directly in Internet Explorer and takes forever to load them, which is stupid because there's no option to disable that lame feature, if you could call it one. The solution I've found is simple: uninstall the intrusive QT, and never worry myself with Mac-for-PC products again.

Wow, apple sucks ipod, quicktime, itunes-Ha.
All Hype no action. Mommy and daddy apple say no you cant do that.
like who the f_ck are they they ? Apple computers and the ipod can't do anything right .
why do apple people think they are so smart ,when they have to do 8 steps to do what i can do with the click of a mouse?
Creative Zen M is way better then I-God the the false icon. now we have to deal with Quick time everywhere the worst player ever made.
My Zen M came with a built in radio and all the power cables,and conversion software came with it .
None of that crappy apple stuff,comes with anything .
Crapple is over priced crap.
just think if you bought a car and it could not go over 65 because the manufacture says so and then it didn't come with tires well thats How Apple does it buisness.We dont get sh_t for our money . then it doesn't work when you do buy all there crap anyway.

I only use Quicktime because it is the format that my digital cameras use. Otherwise, I'd never install it on my system. I hate the buy pro nag screen, the inability to view full screen and the super annoying qttask TSR that always wants to be running. Why is it that so many software companies feel that the only reason you have a computer is to run their product, and so it should use as much system resources as possible at all times?

The only thing worse than Quicktime, is Realplayer.

I hate quicktime and how it is forced upon me when I download itunes. I also hate how quicktime starts when I turn on my computer, and I have never used quicktime by choice. It has no function that another program cannot perform better. It looks ugly and its face smells. It doesn't really smell, but if it could it would stink. I guess if you can force your software on enough people, that it will eventually get you somewhere.

The #1 reason i absolutely REFUSE to buy an ipod or or apple computers is the fact that they produce quicktime. By producing one absolutly HORRIBLE program for so long, the seems to only get worse with each edition, makes me lose all trust for anything apple does. Atleast microsoft allows you the choice to use 50 other programs. It provides you with media player by default for convenience, and i love it. I rather get rammed in the ass by bill gates than steve job's massive black quicktime dick ANYDAY. I will never give apple a cent until they eliminate ALL the negative issues with quicktime and apologize for the YEARS of frustration they have caused to millions of people worldwide.

Quicktime is the most useless piece of shit software I have ever seen, if you happen to "UPGRADE" to a different, decimal point version, you end up paying another 40 bucks for a new license. At least windows is free to upgrade!!!! Also, what is the deal with playing .AVI files with it, it takes a high-def .avi file, and makes it look like it was filmed by a 4 year old with a web cam. Lastly, and this is for anyone who does major movie editing with AVID Studio Express Pro, or Adobe Premiere Pro (any version), or any other Non-Linear Editing Software. It requires you to have the latest version of Quicktime, and then it takes FOREVER for it to export, and when it is done, it is either the wrong file type, size, or it looks like plain old S#&%!!!!

"We at Apple spend considerable efforts to ensure that the software we engineer provides the best user experience that we can possibly deliver."

@your engineers:

SMIL - fail@hardward abstraction, l2deinstantiate your fricken memory, l2 cross project unit test. SOME hardware will deconstruct it's memory through the HAL, others wont... perhaps spending more than 10 minutes to comprehende the HAL library (i.e. openGL, DirectX) will prove to mean your software is actually working. Better still, get some software engineers who actually code, or alternatively, should finance be the problem, get some management who don't want to run their tongues over the pretty boxes and actually want to invest in sound product performance. Somewhere you are just plain failing.

SOCKETS - fail@application layer problem mitigation. IF I GET ANOTHER "INVALID URL" from basic TCP transport problems i'm going to scream.

I have to agree 100% with dude. The Quicktime® .MOV format is not only an industry standard but it also represents Apple's® commitment to excellence and quality which Apple® customers expect.

Without the Quicktime® .MOV format then many of the latest innovations in the internet media would simply not be possible. Without Apple's® continuous push for innovation and user-friendly interfaces then services such as YouTube® and streaming multi-media would simply not exist. If it weren't for Apple's® Quicktime® format even the latest DVD and Blueray® discs would not be possible. As a matter of fact, with Apple's® Quicktime® there would be no T.V. at all.

The facts speak for themselves and without Apple's® Quicktime® the internet would not be what it is today.

I install quicktime for about 5 minutes just to hear the itunes songs I've downloaded, then I delete it. I don't even want to use itunes anymore because of your stupid quicktime player.

Quick time is the worst media player around & the fact that we are forced to install it with Itunes & other programmes is just so annoying. It then forces you to reboot you computer.

Apple. I did not ask for Quicktime & certainly had no reason to reboot my machine. I really hate the way you do business. Itunes is also terrible but again, if you own an ipod this software is forced upon you by apple,

Now they are restricting people from plugging their ipods into any machine other than the one it was origionally syncronized with. Stop trying to control peoples lives with your shit, intrusive software. Stick the hardware and OS/X and leave PC users alone.

Microsoft offers a choice as they know how to make software and are confident that people will choose their software above other alturnatives. Apple are aware that nobody in their right mind would choose Quicktime or Itunes given the choice so they force it upon us.

Stop it before it drives us all mad.

QuickTime is maybe not as bad as people think. The main reason people don't like it is because if you're used to WMV, when you switch over to QT you can't find anything. But actually, all the same functions are there - and when you figure out how it works, you end up with a better interface than WMV.

but, coming from me Steve, that was some pansy ass political BS you came out with up above: "it may appear intrusive... but this is because of the incredibly positive profile Apple has achieved with its customers"??!? how does an incredibly positive profile result in your customers thinking your software sucks?

Jorge Alosi: Google "quicktime alternative" for non-quicktime app to play mov-format.

quicktime is one of the single worst programs ever made, and always has been. It has always been a crap - it is slow, freezes/crashes, and the mov-format has horrible quality/size ratio? Why do people still use it? Why anybody would even use this format is beyond me, since the entire format sucks as much as the rest of quicktime.

If I could grab Steve Nutjob but his nuts, cut his throat, then smash his head against a Mac G5 enough times to see his brains leak out, I certainly would. I'm so mad at this moment that I'm pretty sure I really would cause a massacre if I see him, or any other Mac faggot for that matter.

I don't know why the fuck Microsoft hasn't made a .mov extension support yet. This made me yet again install quicktime (should've been appropriately named waitingtime...or in my case, CRASHTIME). Now each time I want to download an MP3, mov, or any media file from the internet, instead of downloading it, it tries to open it with quicktime, then the whole damn thing crashes.

A company that can't make an application as simple as a MEDIA PLAYER work is not worth two shits, and is definitely not worth buying anything from.

NEVER, EVER, WASTE YOUR MONEY ON A MAC. PERIOD.

Ive experienced the crap that is called quicktime since the days of apple IIsi's and i must say it hasnt changed a bit. Resource hogging and way too slow. And now facebook keeps haunting me saying i have to install the bloody plugin! FUCK THAT.

TO THE DEVELOPERS OF QUICKTIME....eat my choad.

One would think that a huge company thats trying to get a better foothold in the pc world would try to give you software that is clean and simple to use and listen to the complaints and do something about it. Its like the Quicktime developers think we will just agree to any bullshit they dish out. The "pay for full screen" thing is an absolute moneyhungry joke. When i have to, i use a cracked pro quicktime because NOBODY should pay for full screen capabilities when you are forced to use their software. Then i discovered an alternate to quicktime without the bullshit and plays in vlc and media player and classic.

So for all out there that needs a QT alternative download the latest K-lite MEGA codec pack from

http://www.codecguide.com/
(plays REAL MEDIA, QUICKTIME and other bullshit no strings and installs all the codecs u could dream of and doesnt burden u with bad software. Infact I use MEDIA PLAYER CLASSIC for everything and it works brilliantly. Its simple and to the point. VLC is awesome too)

Only download the KLITE pack from there as it has no spyware or adware or whatever. AND U CAN USE FULLSCREEN and it uses less resources.

So whoever reads this give it a go. I also typed in "quicktime sucks balls" and came to this site. Google is gettin bad now too with 50 million programs at startup.....Actually ADOBE,QUICKTIME,GOOGLEUPDATER,INCD,NEROCHECK etc....I fix pc's for a livin and im forever disabling those programs. how do you know what they are relaying to their servers???

Craptime more like. My camera used to open files in WMV, now it won't, and Craptime has converted all the others on my computer as well. Why should I have to become a computer genius in order to download a few family videos?

Its a horrible rip off program, and it will make me avoid all their proiducts like the plague, and I will tell everyone else to as well, so that they lose a bleeding fortune.

They could have easily formatted the cussed thing so that it is not so intrusive. They've done this on purpose so that they can make more money. Greedy pigs. I hope they go bust!

Since this rant started processors have become 8 times faster, hard drives are ginormous and spin at insane speeds, even the USB interface is 10 times faster. Linux and Windows have both become lean, mean, fast, and reliable desktops.

Meanwhile; We are still in two wars, quick time is still intrusive, bulky, slow, and generally sucky. Macs are still over priced and their OS is still nothing more than a castrated Unix clone that was reverse engineered and altered just enough to allow them to charge money for it. As I learned long ago, never throw out anything because there's someone out there willing to give you money for it.

Quicktime is an appalling piece of software. It doesn't even work well on a mac. I use VLC because it's reliable and uses less resources. Quicktime on my Macbook pro is always stalling or stuttering. It doesn't seem to be able to handle the multiple finger thing to fast forward. Apple should just throw this piece of junk software into the crapheap where it belongs.

My wife was given an iPod shuffle as a Christmas present a couple of years ago. What neither of us knew was that it required iTunes to work. We have one computer (and it's mine!) so I refused to let her install it "as is." I had to create another (very restricted) user account on Vista so we could install it local to that user. At least Microsoft got something right in that every step of the way in the installation I kept getting warnings about needing to increase the security prileges to let the installation do x, y, or z. Denied, denied, denied. After the installation I went through msconfig and regedit and evicerated all traces left by the installation.

Now we have iTunes which barely works (and that's a good thing) and doesn't auto-start or anything on the main user account. You wouldn't hardly know it's on this computer. Best of all- she can at least sync her iPod.

If you have to intsall iTunes make a separate account and only install it for that one user. Then go back into the administrator account and remove all traces of it in the system configs. You'll be ok.

As for quicktime, just don't install it. Get Media Player Classic or VLC and find the codec to play .MOV. 'Nuff said. QuickTime really is one of the worst pieces of software I've ever had the misfortune of encountering. At least you can still avoid it.

Uninstalling and deleting everything to do with quicktime just isn't satisfying enough. It filled me with so much rage this afternoon I feel like I needto physically harm it.

I have an iPod (which I like) however itunes can be a fucking stain on my computer at times. So quicktime just randomly appears. I'm not a fool I change all the settings, trying to keep quicktime tfo of my way. But you just click one wrong link to a .mov or one wrong file and BAM quicktime is back in my face. Get fucked.

* Hates software that has a dependency on Quicktime!

"we have found that if we ensure Quicktime always starts with the computer the awareness of Quicktime is enhanced, even when the customer doesn't intend to watch any video content during their session, and installing icons on the desktop and quick launch toolbars go further toward maintaining Apples profile and reputation for quality software."

^ That's the thing I hate most about Quicktime! I'd be happy if it was just another shitty player that you install and never use; if it just sat in the programs list and didn't do a thing...but NO. Apple has to shove their big greasy CockTime in your face and shit over your entire system.

Come into my life this really pisses in my creative pool!! DON'T COMPRESS IT!!!! PLease!! Or offer a converter. A real one. Dedicated all alone, for one thing, and one thing ONLY!! For your soul crippling nazi bullshit codec to be set FREE!! FREE!! to see the world thought the eyes of other formats with out crippling the file. It's a beautiful picture on my flip! Now it's garbage!! And they're always corrupt or error and small!! It's always a crap shoot if it'll even convert, be stable, or look half way decent. I SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO TELL IT ONCE WAS qt codec. We need a converter made by Jesus Christ him self to be forgiven in or PC ways of life. If anyone knows about this program please "show me the way"
I'll be honest, I like apple. I feel like whore for go'n both ways. Hate their spell check, "maybe I don't want you to replace my intentionally mispelled word when I hit the SPACE BAR!!

My online professor was stupid (or mean) enough to make us watch online video lectures that require Shit Time to view...but it doesn't work, except at the university's library, and not even very well there. I bought a new computer, upgraded to a super-fast satellite connection and wasted WEEKS of my life trying to get this CRAPWARE to work, while still having to drive the 100 mile round trip to the university to watch the fucking lectures. Now, because it is impossible to hear the lectures, I have to drop this fucking required class for my major, once again, thanks to this rottenappleware.

Come to think of it, my professor is a total lazyass creep too. He's received so many complaints about the shittime player over the last few years, and hasn't changed his format to something that works. So add that stupid fuckr to the list of azzhoses that can go to hell!!!!!!!! The biggest lie is in the NAME of this crapware..."Quick Time"...quick my constipated ass!!!

Quicktime wound up being a suggested for using newest version of Realplayer because Realplayer otherwise doesn't work & it screwed my entire laptop up with viruses invading it. AM typing this on anothe rcomputer. Mind you, this & the cost of APPLE computers themselves is the very reason I would NOT buy any APPLE products. I don't care what they make or how good it's supposed to be. It's too totally stinking expensive for the average college student paying their own way through college by busting their tush working 40 hours a week while only being able to afford to go to school part time. APPLE RIPS PEOPLE OFF & the APPLE computers in our labs at school are notorious for breaking down & having to be geeked to get them back to working order. APPLE makes mostly CRAP, bottom line. No wonder their founders are billionaires. They take advantage of gullible POOR people, one of whom, thankfully is NOT me. Will NOT have anything to do with APPLE or their products. NO THANKS.

Fuck this stupid playback software and the brainless dolts who created it, this piece of shit program can't even play a 2 minute video without constantly lagging. VLC Media Player trumps this pathetic QT by a thousandfold. I'm on a Windows 7 with 10GB of RAM (YES, 10 GIGS!) and this moronic crap is still dragging like a ball and chain, that should be more than enough to make it clear that this Apple software serves no purpose on Microsoft computers. I've tried it on an old mac, a new mac, a windows xp & my current computer but they all have some kind of problem with perfectly processing the video no matter what you do. I've simply come to the conclusion that Quicktime is total garbage and the people who program it only have half a brain for what they do. I've tweaked around with playback processors before and even I could shit up something that gives a better output than QT. Congratulations Apple, nobody likes you!
