As I’ve said before, we continue to work on a number of commercial projects, which means we continue to refine the OSX client.
Today, I finally got movies to work in OSX. What you see below is a screenshot of a movie streamed from the Web (from an Apple Quicktime .mov file), but it also works for H.264 movies. “H.264” means we can play movies from YouTube without use the Adobe Flash player which fundamentally just sucked from a performance standpoint.
We also refactored movie support a bit, which will make it easier to use other encoder/decoders, like ffmpeg, for example.
P.S. I’ll put up a longer, more technical post about this later. While there’s lots of QuickTime documentation on the Web, it sometimes leads you down rabbit holes, and in the end you seem to always say “Wait, that’s all I had to do?”
