QuickTime 6: 25 million served

Today Apple announced that more than 25 million copies of QuickTime 6 have been downloaded in 100 days — very impressive.

I hate to be a Negative Nelly, but the press releases avoids discussing QuickTime 6’s wonderful Sorenson Video 3 codec, which offers far better quality than QuickTime 6’s MPEG-4 Video codec. This suggests that this is the last Sorenson codec for QuickTime (but not for Flash, hopefully).

It’d also be really nice if Apple would answer the question that makes most in the non-Mac press dismiss the news…how many of these 25 million downloads are QuickTime for Windows? Link
