QuickTime is a container format developed by Apple Computer, Inc. It is usually used to wrap video content, but can also be used to wrap sound and still image data.

The QuickTime format was used as the basis for the international standard MPEG-4 format.

A now-deprecated related format for still images taken from a QuickTime video is QTIF.

Format

See boxes/atoms format. Starting in 2004, the QuickTime movie file specification has been based on ISO Base Media File Format, with a brand of "qt  ".

Quicktime VR

In the past, the Quicktime format has been used as a container for so called Virtual Reality (or rather, 360 degree panorama) data. Not clear how to identify. File extensions usually just .mov, but may be .qt or more specifically .qvr (possibly .qtvr?).
