One of the file types Quick Look handles well is video; you can select one or more videos and open them in Quick Look, then use a basic playback controller to watch the movie. Quick Look is pretty smart about videos, too. First off, Quick Look will remember where you were at in the video if you exit Quick Look then reopen it later–as long as you didn’t use Quick Look on any other files in the interim.
Finally, Quick Look and video files work well with Spaces, Leopard’s virtual desktop tool. If you’re watching a video in one space, then switch to another space, Quick Look will automatically pause the video. When you return, the movie will resume play right where you left off (as long as you didn’t use Quick Look in another Space).
