I have for years now used various players to play Videos, but there are two products that for as long as they have been around, really although they are popular titles offer terrible performance versus VLC player for exactly. Today I want to talk about QuickTime because if you have installed Itunes you probably have QuickTime installed. The program itself sports a lot of features, you’ll probably never use, the interface of the program is down right ugly, and the playback is questionable, with QuickTime also being a resource hog when it does manage to play a video. So say no to QuickTime, you might have a better video playback experience for it. Just my two cents. You can grab a copy of the VLC player HERE.
