QuickTime 7 Launches: Full Release for Windows Users

Today marks the day when QuickTime 7 for Windows sheds its “beta” label, as noted by Calel.

He highlights a significant point for digital content creators, stating, “This is crucial because previously, if you wanted to upload QuickTime movies to your .Mac or any other website, you were forced to downgrade your videos from the superior H.264 codec to accommodate compatibility.” Not only was this a limitation for users of older Mac systems, but it also impacted the experience on the Windows platform.

To utilize the full capabilities of QuickTime 7, users will require a PC with a Pentium processor or equivalent, a minimum of 128MB RAM, and either Windows 2000 or XP.
