QuicktimeMovieComponent quality issue on windows


#1

Hi Jules,

I'm using QuickTimeMovieComponent for mp4 movie playback. I observed that the video quality is not upto par compare to Apple QuickTime player application. In Apple QuickTime Player, lines and text looks smooth compared to QuicktimeMovieComponent. Have you noticed this before?  Is there any settings to remove aliasing? 

 

I tried SetMoviePlayHints(movie, hintsHighQuality, hintsHighQuality) with out any success.

 

Regards,

More a question for Apple than me.

But bear in mind that the whole Quicktime system is deprecated. I need to replace it with the newer Apple codec APIs.

Does this mean we will get a new Component that will show a video but that's not a "heavyweight" component? That'd be a dream!

No.. it'd still be an OS NSView object, it'd just be using a different back-end.
