It is unlikely that you need it, it likely came preinstalled. It is a video player, but if you use a different piece of software to play video then it is unlikely that quicktime is doing anything for you. You should check if it has a web plugin which is required on sites you visit and cannot be replaced by nroaml html5 or flash, otherwise i can't see any reason to have it. make sure to check what your current mdeia player is before uninstalling it, and alos check which program is used to play DVDs before you uninstall quicktime, just incase it is needed for that. Another thing about quicktime is because most users don't use it but have it preinstalled it just sits on the system and is never updated, this can lead it it causing some security vulnerabilities if it isn't (and most users don't open it so thye never update it) updated..
