Fast Player is a program that was designed to be a fast QuickTime movie player. It contains special options such as Preload movie and No backgrounding. Preload movie loads the movie from the disk into RAM. Preload movie gives the greatest performance increase and results in smother playing movies, especially with slow drives and remote volumes. No backgrounding is an option to play movies without having to quit other applications which may cause jerky playback.
FastPlayer is not a fat binary. The code runs very little during movie playback so there would be no speed gain in recompiling.

QuickTime (1.x or 2.x was tested with this software, not sure about newer versions)
Emulating this? It should run fine under: Basilisk II
