ALTHOUGH - when you use the 'set the filename to' and quicktime, you can
play any file that quicktime handles, especially MP3 compression --- AND

there's a big gap between the two technologies here...

regardless of the politics (and perceived reluctance) surrounding Quicktime,
it's still the first and best technology for this purpose. They've been
doing this for a long time.

The new Quicktime is leaner and meaner, and should be an improvement.
