How to Play Multiple Files in QuickTime


Playing multiple files in Apple's QuickTime Player is an easy process after you have changed the program's preferences to open new movies in new player windows, as opposed to replacing the movie already playing. You can choose between playing the audio in the foremost window player only or for all videos simultaneously.

  • Launch QuickTime Player. Click the "Edit" tab and select "Preferences" if on a PC or "QuickTime" and "Preferences" if on a Mac.

  • Click the "Open Movies in New Players" option so a checkmark appears next to the box.

  • Select the "Play Sound in Frontmost Player Only" option if desired, or leave it unchecked to play sound in all player windows.

  • Open videos in QuickTime by selecting "Edit" and choosing "New Player Window" if on a PC or "File" and "New Player Window" if on a Mac. Locate the desired video files on your hard drive. Drag and drop each file into its own player window and let them load.

  • Click the "Play" button on each video's player window to start playback.

Tips & Warnings

  • If QuickTime is set as your default player, open multiple files by double-clicking their icons in Windows Explorer (PC) or Finder (Mac). Click the "View" tab in QuickTime and select "Play All Movies."
