    I've noticed that in Snow Leopard when you minimize, for example a Quick Time movie to the Dock, the movie doesn't carry on playing like it used to. Instead it shows a freeze-frame of the last part of the movie before it was minimized.

    It's not an important feature but I was wondering about the reason for this change.

    This hasn’t worked for a long time, since 10.5.0, I believe.

    Thanks for the replies. My old Mac has Panther on it so I missed the changes in Tiger & Leopard. It was a nice touch to see a minimized icon still playing a movie in the Dock.
