The Xiph QuickTime Components are Xiph.org's implementation of the Ogg container along with the Speex, Theora, FLAC and Vorbis codecs for QuickTime. This allows users to use Ogg files in popular applications such as iTunes, QuickTime Player and any other application that uses QuickTime for audio and video file support.
XiphQT replaces other QuickTime Ogg implementations, such as qtcomponents and Arek's OggVorbis QuickTime components.
Note: Xiph QuickTime Components will play FLAC only if in Ogg container - file suffix .oga. For native FLAC support - file suffix .FLAC - Arek's FLACImporter.component is required. Using FLACImporter.component, QuickTime Player playes native FLAC fine, iTunes might have issues - see FLACImporter.component information.
Famous quotes containing the word components:
“Hence, a generative grammar must be a system of rules that can iterate to generate an indefinitely large number of structures. This system of rules can be analyzed into the three major components of a generative grammar: the syntactic, phonological, and semantic components.”
—Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)
