    Seconded.

    It's an essential application for video playing, along with Perian.

    Fantastic program!

    It is, rightly so, on many list of essential Mac downloads.

    Yeah it's cracking.

    Personally I find it a bit ugly so I tend to transcode most of my movies to .mp4 or .mov so I can watch with QT. Still worth installing though.

    Bar Quicktime its the only media player I use.

    Great for matroska files.

    Without a doubt. Not only for different formats of video file (.wmv, .mp4 etc) but for DVDs as well.

    I use Perian and QT for most video playback. Anything that doesn't work in QT or is choppy I use VLC. It's a nice secondary app.
