WOW!!! I can't believe that I'm watching QuickTime on my Mac in
Squeak!!! Way to go, Jim!!
Some experience reports:
- The "QuickTimeMoviePlayer getAndOpen" did nothing at all. I had to
open by filename.
- I tried opening an MP3 (I do have QT4.1.2), but nothing happened.
AIFF worked fine, though.
- I did encounter a crash, or rather, a hang. I had an AIFF and big
(6.5M) QT movie open (with video and audio tracks). I had another
window on top of the big QT movie. I'm not sure the very last thing I
did, but Squeak stopped responding, and so did the menu bar.
Apple-opt-shift-esc killed Squeak and I got control back.
But nevertheless...WOW! Thanks, Jim! This really opens up some new
possibilites for us!
