Quicktime - Install


QuickTime takes advantage of DirectDraw for optimal video performance, and DirectSound for audio synchronization. It is important for you to have the latest drivers for your video and sound cards. You may also need the current version of DirectX.


1. Download QuickTime

2. NOTE: The default name of the file is a randomly generated name, rather than "QuickTime30.exe". You need to either rename it in the Save dialog box or take note of the randomly generated name, so you can find the downloaded file in order to double-click it in the next step.

3. After you have downloaded QuickTime 3, double-click on the 'QuickTime30.exe' image to start the installation process.

4. Follow the installation wizard's instructions (you must OK the License agreement) to complete the installation process.
