VLC seems to be have a lighter load when it comes to system resources, plus it is a lot faster when playing HD video files. At least that is my experience anyway.
I agree. Also sometimes QT will just not like a file and decide not to play the audio or video part, even though I have Perian installed; in those cases I just use VLC.

Not sure, but they should I think. Perian handles almost anything though Qt is quite finicky about mpeg files.
