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...

yeah... but he didn't quite answer my question -- he might not know the details...

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.

oh well...

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?

Yep, QT6 should read DVD quality (MPEG2) files directly... MPEG4 files should provide the same quality at lower bitrates however...

I hear you. All those $20 charges add up, but if you actually use some of the editing features it's worthwhile.

But I got all kinds of serials here.. Cheerios, Bran Flakes, Life, and EVEN Kix!!! Someone pass the milk!

QT6 should rock.. I just hope they clear up the full screen performance issue.. Why is it that Quicktime full screen performance is great in other people's products, but the actual Apple Quicktime Player itself drops frames! Hopefully they'll fix this major problem.. that and it should have controls during full screen--even minimal controls like DVD Player--which allow for pause, fast forward, and reverse from the keyboard. Someone would think Apple was trying to mimick Minimalist theory in their code or something! I'm not thrilled with Divx, but I love the idea of MPG4 as long as it's a one time fee and not Screw per View!.

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.

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...
