If i could find some good documentation on quicktime, i'd probably give it a 
shot... since i already have most of the infrastructure already for 

I had a look a few times for detailed info on quicktime, and it all looked 
pretty painful.

Not to mention all the base media handler code provided for the sdk, says 
not suitable for bitrates greater than like 32kpbs which is useless to most 
media plug-ins, so it looks like you have to get down and dirty to get 
anything non-trivial done.

But it's certainly one of those things that has been on my really long 
like-to-do list. Since i primarily use iTunes (under windows) for audio, it 
would be nice to be able to put my various .ogg files in the same playlist 
as the rest of my music.
