What is Quicktime 7?

A powerful multimedia technology with a built-in media player, QuickTime lets you view Internet video, HD movie trailers,
and personal media in a wide range of file formats.


  • This package installs QuickTime and the required Apple Application Support component, but not the Apple Software Update component.
    The latter is intrusive and thus probably undesirable for many user because it recommends unnecessary additional software from Apple.

To install Quicktime, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install quicktime

To upgrade Quicktime, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade quicktime

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
