Quicktime 6 with some new possibilities
The most popular streaming tool Quicktime from Apple will soon be available in a new version 6. Among other things, it will be possible to play MPEG4 videos. Apple cannot yet release the software due to license negotiations.
Yesterday on the 'QuickTime Live' -Conference in Los Angeles marvel at the new version of Quicktime. Because the MPEG4 codec is integrated, you can look forward to even better picture and audio quality. Flash 5 is also supported by Quicktime 6, among other things. However, since the patent holders are asking for money to distribute MPEG4 content, Apple has not yet released the program. The company is still in license negotiations and wants to ensure that MPEG4 content can be broadcast free of charge. Thus, the distribution of Quicktime 6 would be secured again. As already mentioned, Quicktime 6 itself is not yet available. But you can already download the QuickTime Streaming Server 4.0 from the Quicktime page .
