QuickTime is a powerful application that allows users to benefit from better media tools and everything is offered for free. Video compression is a good feature of the app, especially because there is now full support for H.264 technology. This manages to provide high quality videos. These videos can be rendered in HD with low bandwidth requirements. The player is easy to use and the installation is also done in a few steps. The UI has been redesigned and now it features all of the useful options on the main screen, for easy access. Shades of grey have been chosen to create a serious and useful interface.
Seven tabs contribute in order to create the interface and each one of them will take the user into a new list full of interesting options. This way, a user can easily be in touch with worldwide media as the tool allows him to stream TV shows, for example. These shows will also be streamed using the H.264 technology and high definition videos can be streamed with ease. Music is an important part of media and because of this, the application features several options designed for music lovers.
This way, they can easily transform their computer in a powerful media library as there are numerous options that can be used in order to create various playlists sorted either by personal preferences, by genre or by other factors. A widget is available and it can be placed on the screen. From here, users can control various options of the playlist in order to switch from different music tracks or even different libraries. The widget can be customized and it can make use of the “always on top” feature in order for people to have quick and easy access to the buttons.
