Your Mac Life to discuss MPEG-4 licensing debate
April 3 - 15:05 ET Your Mac Life , an Internet-based Mac radio show, has announced its lineup for tonight's broadcast (21:00 - 23:00 ET), which will feature Larry Horn, Vice President of Licensing for the MPEG LA group, who will discuss the issues surrounding MPEG-4 licensing, which Apple has accused of holding up the release of QuickTime 6 and other MPEG-4 compatible products. Other special guests will include cartoonists Nitrozac and Snaggy of GeekCulture and Alias|Wavefront President Doug Walker. Host Shawn King will also announce the first leg of his Mac User Group Tour.
Tune in, turn on....you know the drill...
I just hope we get some definitive answers and a timeframe...
QT6 will cost $4million in licensing fees to MPEGLA - just to distribute...Originally posted by j763
Does anyone know much about what MPEG LA are proposing? It sounds like we'd have to pay for QuickTime 6 if they got their way... And does anyone know whether QT 6 will be able to play DivX movies??
