    However, doesn't run on Windows 2000 :(

    Great con they managed to keep it out for so long.
    All those people that paid for the full version for this feature.

    Well Dawn M. Fredette anyway.

    Apple is forcing windows users to upgrade to Vista :smoker:

    Sorry, just thought I'd get that in.

    Guess it's almost time for me to stick QT back on my system, since I have a paid license and all that :p

    all these years they expected us to PAY for fullscreen playback, let alone a buggy, ugly, intrusive, out of place mess of a video player? unbelievable.

    their h264 codec is one of the worst too, wonder what the "updates" are, not interested until there is at least a 50% increase in decoding speed and high profile support (the latter of which they really should've had long ago). and don't get me started on the speed and quality of their encoder...

    Apple didn't develop H.264. :ermm:

    I'm pretty sure he knows that. :)
    If I understand correctly, I think he's referring to Apple's implementation of H.264 in QT.

    precisely :)

    x264 and nero both are capable of high profile encodes. yet quicktime, which has the most resources behind it, not to mention a lot of business and likely the largest userbase, only supports up to main profile.
