Please see DelegateOnlyComponent in the current QuickTime sample code archive for an updated version demonstrating concepts outlined in this original sample. This sample component pretends to be a data handler. But, all it does is delegate to the real data handler. This is a useful component sample to start with if you are writing a component to overide the functionality of another component. However, since this component relies on being installed after QuickTime is loaded, if it is used to overide a standard QuickTime component, you may need to combine this component with another installation method to have it install properly. See MyRegisterComponent. Also, see develop article in issue #15 on Manager Component Registration. Requires: QuickTime Keywords: QuickTime
