Downloading QuickTime


Before you're ready to enter virtual reality using QuickTime VR, you need QuickTime 4.x first. If you don't have it, it's free and simple to download, so just follow these instructions, and you'll be in virtual worlds in no time.

1. In a moment, you'll launch a second browser window. To make sufficient room on your monitor, resize this window (your wNetSchool tutorial browser window) to be as small as possible, while leaving enough room to read the instructions. Alternatively, you may want to print out these on-screen instructions before you begin the downloading process. You can refer to them while the download is in progress.

2. Launch the QuickTime browser window by clicking on QuickTime. QuickTime can be downloaded from Apple's Web site at http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/index.html.

3. Resize the QuickTime browser window so it fits alongside the wNetSchool tutorial browser window.

4. Fill in the registration information. (Don't worry, the product is free.) Then select your platform type, click the Download button, and follow these instructions:

  • If you're on a Windows-based machine, select that option. Sit back and wait until it downloads, and then follow the simple instructions.
  • If you have a Mac, click on that option. Sit back and wait until it downloads.
  • On both systems, click on the QuickTime Installer and then follow the simple instructions.

5. Once it has finished downloading, you can close the QuickTime browser window and continue following along in this tutorial.
