QuickTime is available for Mac OS X and Windows operating systems, and is distributed free of charge.QuickTime 7 Player automatically determines your system’s connection speed and chooses the highest quality stream for the amount of bandwidth you have available. And if you ever lose a connection while watching streaming video, QuickTime 7 Player automatically reconnects. This article discusses how to configure QuickTime to ensure proper playback of Internet movies. If movies do not play properly, check the QuickTime connection speed setting. If you select a speed faster than your actual connection, QuickTime playback may stutter or appear jerky. If you select a speed slower than your actual connection speed, QuickTime will always try to locate and play versions of the movie authored for the closest match to the slower connection speed. (The resulting movie may be smaller in size and lower in quality than your connection can actually support.)
