files in Windows Media Player or another DirectShow based player, then it is recommended to install the K-Lite Codec Pack. That contains all the DirectShow filters that are required to play QuickTime files.

There is a variant of QuickTime Alternative called QT Lite. The ONLY difference between the two packs is that QT Lite does not contain Media Player Classic.
