This is new to me!

But i hade big success playing WAV (which is noit necessarily = WAV 
;-), AIF, AU
and MP3 as sounds and "AVI (even DivX) and MPG as video files on Windoze
without QT being installed (= NO QT ;-)

But i also cannot understand why some pcs do not install QT, but wanna 
have FULL
"multimedia" experience... OK, it is not MS...
