Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: MusicDish - February 14, 2002

Apple's QuickTime 6 software with full support for MPEG-4 is now ready for release. But you won't be able to get it (officially) until "MPEG-4 video licensing terms are improved," Apple says.

"Apple agrees with paying a reasonable royalty for including MPEG-4 codecs in QuickTime, but does not believe that MPEG-4 can be successful in the marketplace if content owners must also pay royalties in order to deliver their content using MPEG-4," the company states.

"MPEG-4 is the best format for streaming media on the web, and QuickTime 6 is the first complete MPEG-4 solution," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. "MPEG-4 is poised for great success once the licensing terms are modified to allow content providers to stream their content royalty-free."

However, Apple has announced the immediate availability of QuickTime Streaming Server 4, Apple's open-source, standards-based streaming server, now with MPEG-4 and MP3 streaming capabilities. QuickTime Streaming Server 4 does not require a MPEG-4 license and is therefore immediately available. QuickTime Streaming Server 4 features include: full MPEG-4 support, allowing MPEG-4 content to be streamed live or on demand; ability to serve MP3 files or playlists to standard MP3 players, such as iTunes, QuickTime player or WinAmp; enhancements to the web-based administration tool; and quality of service and skip protection enhancements. It's available free from www.apple.com/quicktime/products/qtss.
