I'm trying to edit a gif in Photoshop and I have to have to install QuickTime just to get a .dll so I can import frames to layers and it's pissed me off because who the gently caress is still living in the 1990s and using QuickTime? Why the gently caress does Photoshop require this stupid poo poo instead of having a goddamn native ability to import a gif?

Look Quicktime was a loving savior back between 97-2006 when video speeds were slow and codecs sucked. RealPlayer alone gave me nightmares. If Quicktime wants to stick around in retirement I say let it.

Photoshop cc doesn't need it.

What version of Photoshop are you using op?
It's hosed on my old copy of cs4, and only imports the first 6 frames - the rest are blank. I should try Smythe's idea.

Flashbacks to the mid 2000s and having multiple media players installed because you never knew which one the video would loving work with.

Oh yeah and some gifs would only play in loving QuickTime.

Youtube probably became the streaming king because it didn't require quicktime or realplayer. Kids these days have no idea what real buffering is.

Also that anyone would violate there pc installing one of those dubious codec packs. You need to do it properly install and individually tweak each codec manually. Only install what you need.

It 100% did. I remember around 2005-6 there started to be more and more worthwhile streaming video players around, but still with stuttering and loading and codec interactions... then YT showed up and the game changed overnight.

After Final Cut Pro 7, which everyone used and loved, Apple decided to make the next version Final Cut X for Babby™ and removed a poo poo load of features. Now everyone hates final cut and people stopped using it.

People speculate it has to do with Apple not really wanting to make an OS other than osx any longer (so basically iPhone os on laptops) was just the start of this.

The best part about QT was (and probably still is) how it would gently caress up your whole computer if you installed it. Like it'd take over media playback in all browsers for some reason with a stealth plugin that was actually broken, so all internet videos and stuff just didn't work anymore, and then trying to uninstall it would just make it even worse. It could also decide to make itself the default viewer for like regular image formats and poo poo, so back in the day you'd click on an image on your disk only to realize QT was trying to show it, and your computer would lock up for 50 years while that bloated piece of poo poo started up, to view a drat picture.

It's hilarious that this and even shittier RealPlayer was some sort of standard way to view video since players would only play like one or two formats natively. Then WMV came which would actually work without too much hassle and didn't need to install any bullshit you didn't already have, but then it instead turned out people could embed drat scripts or macros or some poo poo in those things so everytime you played a WMV in Media Player you risked getting viruses (even happened to me once, goddamn).

So yeah, Youtube using a flash player that worked as long as you had flash was a pretty big deal.

Back in the early-2000s there was a codec pack that I can't remember the exact name of but started with K that included divx and xvid and a bunch of others and worked flawlessly with VLC which still happens to be the best video player.

It's kinda funny going back and watching some old shows I pirated right here on these very forums back then like MXC or Kenny vs Spenny. The quality is absolutely abysmal by modern standards but back then it was utterly amazing after having lived with RealPlayer and QuickTime for so long.

Probably the K-Lite Codec Pack which was my goto before I found out about VLC. Which as pointed out doesn't require codec packs which is why it is awesome.

Youtube required Flash which was even worse and more insecure than QT and Realplayer and the Kazaa pack combined.
