Quick time for iPad?

1 Answer from the Community

  • AFAICT, iPads have a simplified MPEG-only version of Quicktime built in. The app that accesses it for playing your MP4 videos is called "Videos". Music plays MP3 and MP4 audio files. Mind you that it only plays Mpeg 1, 3, and 4 files and has no plug-in architecture like QuickTime on a Mac or Windows machine. The Camera app when it takes a video employes simple editing functions for trimming video. That's as close as you can get to a "Pro" version of Quicktime in terms of editing with the native software. For playing more exotic formats that would normally need plug-ins on Quicktime on a desktop machine like flash or divx etc, I recommend using VLC on the iPhone, QPlayer Lite, or Video D/P apps.
