- How about a plugin to support encoding/decoding QuickTime files (extension = .mov)?

That's video. This is a music converter...

he might of meant any quicktime file with audio in it. No t necesarily the video part, but the audio track. You need QuickTIme Pro to extract the audio track in QUicktime movies, and not all movies work, especially the copyrighted ones.

Apple's little QuickTime thing, is a very proprietary invention, and chances you will never see QuickTime 4+ support in any other programs than Apple's own or programs with specific contracts made between developer and Apple.

Well, the dBpowerAMP products do support AIFF which is the Apple audio format (and playable in QuickTime) - is that any help?

AIFF ( Apple Interchange File Format ) is an ancient format originating in the 80'ies I think, that means it's not protected like QuickTime is. Besides, there isn't much use of protecting it, as it's much like WAV or PCM - very simple audio format, which uses no compression.

QuickTime 1.0 and 2.0 are supported in Windows Media Player.
It wasn't until QuickTime 3.0 that Apple tigthened the control.
