Re: vogroll complaint (requires QT)

This is an interesting point since there are varied loyalties to a variety of formats. What's it gonna be? Real? QT? WMV? My personal desire is to support Flash Video and QT for web streaming/portable content, and WMV for exclusively portable media center content. And Real can take a flying leap for all I care. (Yet, if I have to deal with Real, I will) This has always been, and will always be, the issue with file formats, and I'm not convinced ANY efforts of open formats will ultimately solve this problem. Because in 10 years, I doubt any of this will matter. It'll all be different. E --- In videoblogging@yahoogroups.com, "M.

The user doesn't want to install additional software and said, why do I need to install QuickTime, the site used to work in Windows Media.
