iMovie Video Store?
There seems to be quite a bit of discussion that with the release of Tiger and QT7 (and it's new 264 video codec) that Apple seems poised to create an online video store in much the same way as the iTunes music store. Some have suggested that it would be integrated into iTunes somehow... but why? iTunes is designed to work with audio files and would be a horrible platform for playing movies. You'd need something more robust like iMovie. It's perfect. You have your categories of "clips" "effects" "photos" at the bottom, and pretty soon, the iMovie Video Store will be another one you can select from. It'll organize your downloaded videos in much the same way that iTunes organizes your music. Why else on God's green earth would you put HD support into a consumer editing program when any HD camera is going to cost at least $3000? If this is the year of HD then it has to go beyond cameras, right? iMovie went HD to support a new online video store. The only question really is when will it become available? I'm guessing shortly after the release of 10.4. Naturally you'll have to updgrade if you want to use the new store (and watch all those people who were happy with Panther start shelling out $129 for an upgrade).
