QuickTime Lite 4.1.0 is a simplified version of the more advanced package QuickTime. This version was released it for use without additional load on system resources, like a portable, but no less functional.
Key Features Of QuickTime Lite
This version of the software package has retained almost all the functions of the main release, however, has a number of advantages compared to "normal" versions. The thing is that it does not require the installation of some plug-ins, which, in fact, sometimes not needed in the system. This is, firstly, built-in panel With Internet Explorer, secondly, the panel itself Quick Time Control Panel, which climbs anywhere, when you do not even expect and, thirdly, you can not install the IPIX-plugin. From the viewpoint of the size of these additions are not particularly load, however, may hang in the RAM, which is quite a significant impact on the overall system.
Anyway, as the basic package, built-in player is designed to play streaming video. However, this is not always the video plays. The fact that the player is designed for its own format MOV. And the more you know, because the manufacturer of this software is a corporation Apple, of course, the competition is huge, especially in the battle for media formats.
Thus, even though the player has the functions of video playback from the web at the moment but their files in the sense of family recognized, can not play anything. In addition, the software package is not embedded codec and decoders. For instance, K-Lite Codec Pack, and that is not supported. Especially because the manufacturer is not provided.
Strange that Apple generally paid attention to the levels of encoding video and audio signals. It would seem that such a solid company, especially one of the leaders in the market of mobile software products, suddenly created a format that is not supported by standard software players, and even more so, their "iron counterparts." It is not surprising that this software platform is used alone. And if you take into account that the player is not embedded in any of the known browsers, it generally tends to suggest why he even created. Nevertheless, they are widely used.
