yeah... but he didn't quite answer my question -- he might not know the details...Originally posted by Rower_CPU
arn, did you just ask about DivX?
I'm listening to the stream of Cassanova's interview and somebody named "arn" just asked if the DivX codec would be included in QT 6...
Correct me if I'm wrong, but QT 6 is supposed to have MPEG-2 support when it comes out. DVD quality video would then be playable through QT, just not at such small filesizes as DivX AVIs. Is that right?Originally posted by arn

I didn't really ask if QT6 will read Divx. Obviously, it would not.... but I was wondering if the parse issue was addressed which prevents the codec from working at this time.
Yep, QT6 should read DVD quality (MPEG2) files directly... MPEG4 files should provide the same quality at lower bitrates however...Originally posted by Rower_CPU

Apple's not getting another red cent of mine for another pro version!
QTs MIDI instruments have always been way better than what's available on the PC. You actually get something resembling a musical instrument, and not a 4-voice sound file...Originally posted by mymemory
Man, I like quicktime a lot but.... they have to really impruve the sounds of the Quictime Midi Instruments, 15 years later an my Atari 512 ST sounds better than my QT 5 in my G4.
If the Quicktime people had some vision, the QuickTime midi sounds could be an standard for internet as Flash is now days.
The only problem is to build intensive midi files, you would need some one (a musician better) with a sequencer to compose for your web page. But imagine to stream a 45k song! that is nothing because the sounds would be in your computer already.
