Links To Quicktime Players On Different Platforms

Aaron Swartz was nice enough to download one of my files and test it on Windows, Mac OSX and Linux.

Here are links to the players that could run the files.

Thanks Aaron!!

The scoop:

Aaron downloaded and tested it:

Mac: Works in QuickTime.

Win: Should work in QuickTime and VLC

Lin: Works in VLC

Use mplayer on Linux. If you install the Win32 codecs it supports EVERY format I have thrown at it including Sorenson and Quicktime. Amazingly smooth fullscreen quicktime on Linux. YES!

yes, that's the way it has to go, though I still have sound-problems on some of lisa's clips.
.mov is just not the right format for cross-OS-compatibility.
