Quicktime announcement at MWSF?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
What is the possibility that any software announcements on Monday will tie into either QT 5, MPEG-4 or even (however improbably) QT 6? Or for that matter, given QTTV's slow death by attrition, would Apple offer some other service or outlet for content? I'm just thinking this is one area people might be ignoring.

    I sure as hell hope so. QuiickTime on OSX is pathetic. The QTP's interface needs serious work to at least get it up to the functionality of the "standard" QuickTime interface. QuickTime in OSX is horribly slow when using large files. Streaming (from heresay, not experience) is also a lot better in Windows Media Player.

    Maybe MPEG4 can help? :confused: <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

    QuickTime Player for Windows is also in need of help. It takes about fifteen seconds to fully load up on my reasonably up to date PC. Photoshop 5.5 takes about the same amount of time. RealPlayer, known to be crap, takes ten seconds. Load times that long would be unacceptable even if QuickTime had better and more widely-used streaming support.
