QuickTime was third in the streaming media market in November behind both RealPlayer and Windows Media, according to market intelligence researcher Media Metrix. Yesterday it reported that media players now are installed on 99 percent of U.S. home PCs and that in November 2000, 47 percent of those users (both Mac and PC) used a media player, while 40 percent used a streaming-media player. QuickTime, however, lagged behind both RealPlayer and Windows Media with a 4 percent marketshare in streaming media, which was up 33 percent from January 2001. RealPlayer and Windows Media were one and two respectively with 28 and 22 percent market share, respectively.
