I've always thought is was a little ridiculous to charge $20 for that QT "Playback Component" software, but I'm wondering if it's going to be included for free now? The reason I think this is because I never purchased it, and it appeared in my Software Update today! Could it be they are now including that functionality? Does anyone know what the situation is here? I do have QT Pro, and FCP, but to my knowledge they DID NOT included that MPEG-2 playback ability. Before I could not play my MPEG-2 backups I was making with compressor, and now I can.
