Trend Micro has reported that Apple is no longer supporting Quicktime for windows, and that there are already two vulnerabilities that will never be fixed.  It is recommended that it be uninstalled on all windows systems.  I just thought I would let everyone know. If you still use windows make sure you uninstall Quicktime.

For anyone still needing quicktime, VLC http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ is a good alternative from my understanding. VLC should allow playback for nearly any media type quicktime does. (Not a windows user at all myself, MPV for life lol.)
The Truth is out there.
Be sure to check the Manual out and always report Bugs or feature requests.
