The Roadmap already includes a new internal cross-platform
Multimedia player (replacing QuickTime, unsupported by Apple)
This change is not a trivial matter.


In this mail list and forums, the names of mPlayer, VLC and other
media players appears whenever there is a discussion of playing
Multimedia file formats. Then...

Why not use a modern and updated multimedia open source format
as basis for this new internal Multimedia player?

Now, webM looks plain and simple compared with all the
capabilities of Quicktime, but who knows if it evolves in the future
and could assume many of the QuickTime Multimedia features,
like Panoramas, Midi playing, script controlled sprites and navigation
and Transitions...

Hopefully, many Livecode users and developers will join the discussion
in the Quality Center. :D
