Let me be the first to say Quicktime X is desperately needed on the Windows side, which I'm sure they're working on, but the current version of Quicktime for Windows is laughable at best.

Also, iTunes needs to be completely rewritten for both OS X and Windows. Yes, I know, not an easy task by any means (and something I'm sure they're also working working on) but it needs to be said.

agreed. both itunes and iphoto (in particular, itunes) have become bigger and bigger with more and more features layered on, the programs are getting bogged down under their own weight.

Mobile Me Gallery movies now work for Windows users!

The previous version would play sound and show a blank/white screen on Windows under IE and Safari. Oddly, Firefox worked just fine.

Now it "just works."

I guess that's what the cryptic comment about custom scaling was about.

Wish they'd just come out and say that they fixed the movie playback in Mobile Me galleries.
