QuickTime 7 for Mac
QuickTime, featuring 3GPP and 3GPP2, worldwide standards for the creation, delivery,
and playback of multimedia over new, high-speed wireless networks. Built on MPEG-4 and powered by QuickTime,
3GPP and 3GPP2 extend the reach of rich multimedia to a new generation of handheld wireless devices.
As the first widely distributed, freely available multimedia technology to deliver both 3GPP and 3GPP2
capabilities, QuickTime enables users all over the world to share 3G content with others via both computers
and mobile devices.

QuickTime 7 for Mac Features:
- 3GPP and 3GPP2 Support
QuickTime 6.5 now delivers extensive support for both 3GPP and 3GPP2, including video, audio,
text, and native .3gp and .3g2 file format support. Because 3GPP and 3GPP2 are now a part of
the core architecture of QuickTime, you can import, export, and play back .3gp and .3g2 files
just as you do .mp4 and .mov files. The technologies in QuickTime 6.5 that provide these
capabilities are MPEG-4 and H.263 video codecs, AAC (Advanced Audio Coding), AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate),
and QCELP (Qualcomm Code Excited Linear Predictive) audio codecs, a 3G Text importer and exporter,
support for Movie Fragments, and a user-friendly 3G export dialog to aid in the creation of 3GPP-
and 3GPP2-compliant files.
- AMC Support
QuickTime 6.5 also includes authoring and playback support for AMC, a popular mobile multimedia
format used by KDDI subscribers in Japan. AMC includes MPEG-4 video, QCELP audio, and STML text.
- Unicode Text
Content creators can now take advantage of QuickTime 6.5's cross-platform Unicode text support,
with improved authoring and playback of text tracks on the Mac OS X, Windows 2000, and Windows XP operating systems.
- Enhanced DV Playback
QuickTime 6.5 provides the option to deinterlace fields during DV playback for
a more smooth video image, particularly when text is part of that image.
- Apple Lossless Encoder
With QuickTime 6.5.1 and later, you can create and play back Apple Lossless audio.
This new lossless audio codec retains the full quality of uncompressed CD audio while requiring only about half the storage space.
- MPEG-4 File Format (.mp4)
Since the QuickTime file format is at the foundation of MPEG-4, QuickTime 6 supports .mp4 files as first-class citizens.
So with QuickTime 6, you can author professional-quality, ISO-compliant MPEG-4 audio and video files that can be played
back not only by QuickTime 6, but also by any other MPEG-4-compliant player.
- MPEG-4 Video
The high-performance MPEG-4 video codec included in QuickTime 6 provides the highest quality results across a wide spectrum
of data rates — from narrowband to broadband and beyond. This revolutionary codec offers compression times and video
quality that rival those of the best proprietary codecs, yet it provides interoperability with other MPEG-4 players and devices.
- AAC Audio
AAC is the new standard in professional audio. It provides more efficient compression than older formats such as MP3,
yet delivers quality rivaling that of uncompressed CD audio. The enhanced QuickTime AAC codec builds upon
state-of-the-art signal processing technology from Dolby Laboratories, and brings true variable bit rate
(VBR) encoding to QuickTime.
Pixlet is the first studio-grade codec for filmmakers. Tuned for use with high-definition source,
it allows digital film frames to play back in real time on any 1GHz G4. For Mac OS X v.10.3 only.
Instant-On means instant gratification for broadband users. Instant-On gives you an immediate
and smooth playback experience for streams — and instant access as you jump or “scrub” through a movie using the time slider.
- MPEG-2 Playback
QuickTime 6 delivers playback of MPEG-2 content via the QuickTime 6 MPEG-2 Playback Component, sold separately
in the Apple Store online. Support for MPEG-2 is the perfect addition for professional content creators who
wish to preview and share work throughout their production processes.
- Skip Protection
Apple’s patent-pending technology for preventing interruptions or skips in streaming media just got better.
QuickTime 6 and QuickTime Streaming Server 5 iron out the bandwidth bumps on the Internet.
- Full Screen
QuickTime 6 delivers enhancements in full screen playback, including keyboard shortcuts for movie control,
faster entry to and exit from full screen, and improved playback performance.
- Simple User Interface
QuickTime 6 includes up-to-date access to the best in QuickTime content as well as an easy-to-use “Favorites” interface.
- MPEG-4 Video
QuickTime and Keynote work together to deliver rich multimedia presentations. You can import QuickTime movies
into Keynote to include video and audio in your presentation. Keynote also serves as an authoring platform for
QuickTime movies — you can export Keynote files to QuickTime and view your Keynote presentation as a self-playing
or interactive movie. By doing so, you maintain Keynote’s stunning animation effects such as 3D cube and flip transitions.
Exporting to QuickTime also makes it convenient to post Keynote files to the Internet or view a Keynote presentation on a Windows PC.
QuickTime Pro users can even show a presentation in full screen mode for a truly impressive presentation experience.
- Support for Java 1.4.1
Developers can now create media-rich applications by accessing the QuickTime APIs with Java 1.4.1.
