Quicktime for Windows

Allegheny College’s Information Technology Services will be removing QuickTime for Windows from college computers running the Windows operating system at the end of the Spring 2016 semester.

The decision to discontinue use of QuickTime for Windows at Allegheny is in response to a recent notice from the Homeland Security’s Computer Readiness Team that identified the potential software vulnerable to viruses and other security threats.  

In light of this potential security vulnerability, Faculty, staff, and students who rely on QuickTime for their work are encouraged to use VLC viewer, which is installed on campus owned computers or find an alternative application as soon as possible.

Please contact ITS if you have any questions.
