This sample code demonstrates how to use the new QuickTime broadcasting APIs. These new APIs are designed to allow you to create standards-compliant RTP broadcasts. This means that non-QuickTime clients can play back your broadcasts. The new APIs comprise part of the QTSPresentation API related to broadcasting and the QTSSourcer component API. (Note that these new broadcasting APIs currently work only on the Mac OS and on Mac OS X.) Basic broadcasting support of the following is included in the QuickTime 5 release: - Audio and video streams from the Sequence Grabber. - Stored movies, i.e., audio and video. - Text and URLs. Requirements: QuickTime 5, CodeWarrior 6 Keywords: QuickTime, broadcasting, QTSPresentation, QTSSourcer
