I got a question where someone asked me to "play movies on Apple computers." The answer to that depends on what it means to play movies.
The reason I mention this is because the person who seeks only said he wanted to know "how to watch movies on Apple computer", and not to mention, if you thought DVD movie, the movie that I downloaded from the Internet or video file (or film) on the website. Depending on what they thought, the answer is a little different.
First of all, let's assume that when he said "play movies on Apple computer", which are thought DVD movie.
Well, it's a very simple answer: any Mac (Apple Mac computers are called, with specific models such as the iMac, MacBook, etc.) in the last few years can play DVDs. 99% of the time, just pop in a DVD drive, and DVD Player will automatically open and begin playing the movie.
the worst case scenario, you will need to open your hard disk, then open the Applications folder, then look for a file DVD player, and double-click, and the movie will play. It is very rare for you to do nothing more than pop a DVD in the drive.
This is another possible meaning for "watch movies on Apple computer" will be the movie that you downloaded from the Internet. There are many different types of video files (video only means of moving images, like the film), which are sent via e-mail, or can be downloaded from the website.
If you want to play a movie or TV show you purchased from iTunes Store, iTunes itself will play a movie using QuickTime. QuickTime is a program made by Apple for their Apple Mac computers and Windows computers, and it comes automatically with iTunes.
Quicktime can play many different types of video files, so that is one way to play movies on Apple computers. If you've got a movie file that you received via e-mail, or that you saved from the site, Quicktime will probably play, but it is already installed on each computer that is Apple.
There are exceptions, so if you can not play the video file (movie), when you double-click and Quicktime gives error message, then another option is the free VLC player.
is a free program that will play just about any type of video files can be obtained from the Internet, personally my favorite way to play movies on Apple computers. VLC Player is also available for Windows.
Finally, if the person who asked how to "play movies on Apple computer" talks about playing movies on the web site, then again, QuickTime will work for a lot of these movies, and VLC can do the trick too (Although I have had problems in the past getting it to play movies that are "embedded" in web pages ).
One of the most popular ways to put video on a website in Flash format. Flash Player is free, and comes pre-installed on most computers. As time passes, though, it seems likely to be replaced by "HTML5", which will let your web browser, video game without the addition of Flash Player, or any other extra "browser plug-ins ".
