Apple, Inc. Ends Support for QuickTime 7 for Windows

QuickTime 7 for Windows is no longer supported by Apple. According to Apple, “New versions of Windows since 2009 have included support for the key media formats, such as H.264 and AAC, that QuickTime 7 enabled. All current Windows web browsers support video without the need for browser plug-ins.”

In the interest of reducing the security risks and vulnerabilities presented by executing or installing unsupported, legacy software, IT Services will be removing QuickTime 7 for Windows from all University owned Windows computers. Removal will begin on Monday, May 23, 2016. Additionally, the execution and re-installation of QuickTime 7 for Windows will be blocked.

Questions and concerns about the end of support for QuickTime 7 for Windows should be directed to the Technology Support Center at (570) 941-4357 or the Information Security Office at (570) 941-6344.
