I don't want to use propritory crap.

I know i misspelled it, but unless kinoma can play native DIVX/XVID like MMplayer then i will never go back. Wow native jpeg support, you know that this free movie player can do that and more

The world will end in 2006. Just as it was predicted in the bible along with the release of Microsoft Longhorn.... :p

When I have Kinoma 3 encode movies for me, it spits them out as MP4s. Hardly proprietary.

VR Quicktimes are great and all, but what about MP3s?

Pretty much every piece of video compression software uses proprietary technology. Unfortunately there are BS software patents on most everything these days. I think DivX (it's DivX not DIVX) is proprietary, they just happen to have an open source player for it.

I don't think the free player you linked to does anything with jpegs.

Good idea

The use of QuickTime VR is a good idea. Good for places that could use Palm units for a self-guided tour. The QuickTime VR image could have labels marked on the image so the viewer can have a legend as to what they're viewing in real life. But without clickable links to extract more information that might be a downside.

How many people actually use QuickTime and/or RealPlayer (I know Kinoma doesn't support RealPlayer videos, but i added it in for the heck of ti). If so how much?
