Is there a free, PC alternative to Quicktime for playing .mov files?

Asked by kevbo (25611points) November 25th, 2007

Is there a plug-in for Irfanview? Or is there an alternative program that will automatically associate with and play .mov files?

try VLC Media player

VLC – the cross-platform media player and streaming server

VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.

and better yet, its open source.
