The program is cross-platform, working on Windows, PocketBook, Android, Windows CE / Windows Mobile, Linux / Unix, MacOS, Sony PSP, BeOS / Haiku. The player is licensed under GPLv2, some utilities and libraries are LGPLv2.

There is a flavor of QSP named AeroQSP Shell for making Flash games, making QSP playable in a web browser.
