Roger,

This is fantastic news!  Thanks for reporting this.  I never ran into  
this player during my searches.  Looks like support for version 6 and  
below of QT is available.  This could be the second best thing to have  
QT for Linux.  My only concern is that their is a price.  Our end users  
would have to have this installed on their systems and pay the price  
for Rev video features to work.

The best solution would be for Rev to support this and a free option as  
well.  mplayer will play QT content for free!  Not sure how mplayer  
handles streaming video though.

With xanim, we do not have most of the features of the player like the  
controller, and properties like formatttedHeight and width of the  
player.  Options are among us though.
