[opendtv] Re: Can't stream HD?

This is my experience with this EVIL application as well.  It's a
non-starter to download the "newest" version just to determine the frame
rate of the video Craig pointed to, since I would have to redo all this
again.  Just to stream the video!  And, since Craig isn't paying attention,
I already have QuickTime (free version) for Windows loaded and installed.

John Willkie, who knows more than he needs to about QuickTime for Windows'
'media architecture'  (isn't that the same argument that caused the EU to
remove Windows Media Player from Windows platforms?)

It has been my experience that, at least on Windows computers, the free 
version of QuickTime has the full screen option under the view menu grayed 
out.  Perhaps you do get access to full screen on Macs, I don't know.

In order to enjoy full screen, you have to pay to upgrade to QuickTime Pro.

The other thing that bothers me about QuickTime is that it is always trying 
to take over being default player for all media types.  I tell it no, check 
the box to never ask me again, but it still comes up with "QuickTime has 
detected it is not the default player for some media types..." every time it

opens.
