qt

qt - a QuickTime player for the Amiga

Overview

qt is a QuickTime player i wrote for my A4000 because I wanted something for my new 68060 to chew on. I then added CyberGraphX capabilities to give my new CyberVision64 something to chew on. Then I released it, and people started using it. Which of course prompted people to start nagging about features they wanted added. Some of these I have implemented, and today the status of qt is something like this:

System requirements
68020 CPU or better, AmigaOS 2.0 or better.
Supported animation formats
RLE, Cinepak, Road Pizza, JPEG, SMC
Supported sound formats
RAW, TWOS, IMA4, MAC3, MAC6

Screenshots

I realize this is kind of silly as you won't be able to see anything move or hear any sound, but nevertheless I've prepared a screenshot of qt playing a movie on a Workbench screen for you...

qt 2.0

News flash!!! qt 2.0 has now been submitted to AmiNet. It is available in the gfx/show drawer of AmiNet as you read this. Check out the final specifications and a nice screenshot on the qt 2.0 page.
