So you can encode mpeg-4 video with this?  Hmm, wonder how it would compare with xvid or divx.

Yeah, no mp3?  Apple couldn't afford the licence, maybe?  Personally I think one would have to be insane to use quicktime as a standard media player anyway.  But possibly its improved I suppose.  Still I will likely not bother trying;  Quicktime has hosed my system in the past...

It plays MP3 perfectly fine, CBR and VBR. (Never tested MP1/2 though)

But it doesn't encodes MP3 due to some kind of bizar agreement Apple has with Qdesign. (I.E: Offer better support to Qdesign's proprietary encoder)

Anyway, you can encode QuickTime .mov using MP3 as audio. All you need is Discreet (Terran) Media Cleaner + MPEG charger. ($$$$$$)
This .mov will play on any QuickTime 3.0+.

>AAC (MPEG-4 Audio)

So can it play files encoded with the Psytel AAC encoder? (Thinking it should but asking anyway)
