QuickTime is one of the most commonly encountered digital video formats on the Internet. Most movie trailers released online are in QuickTime format. In short, QuickTime is ubiquitous.

QuickTime gives filmmakers many ways of protecting their movies from casual copying. Apple's developer documentation discusses methods of copy protetcing movies. These methods are in common use for the QuickTime movies available online.

This guide is intended for honest hackers, not thieves.

Please do not infringe other people's copyrights.
