You can display it in Ciscos open source MPEG4IP mp4player, but not in Quicktime. The only reason that comes to mind is that many mp3s come from Napster etc and shall be useless in future without reencoding. Sort of "conditional access"... Well, I like freedom, and although AAC might be better for new content, reencoding isnt. With Ciscos MPEG4IP mp4creator, you just do something like mp4creator -H bla.mp3 bla.mp4 and you have the timeline. Anyway, whatever the reason was, there is a problem, best, H. http://www.uni-bonn.de/~uzs106/ -- many ways lead to Rome. _______________________________________________ quicktime-talk mailing list | email@hidden Help/Unsubscribe/Archives: http://www.lists.apple.com/mailman/listinfo/quicktime-talk Do not post admin requests to the list.
