Do not ask about those codecs. If you try, you will be shot. Survivors will be shot again.

LOL! What the heck is QDM2?

Holy crap! Is this for real? Does it even play these formats at decent speeds?

If I remember right, not even Linux supports Quicktime.

Must be one of those formats that needs a $5000 license to allow support for. Greedy developers most likley.

Its a codec the new quicktime uses, what chip does a amiga need to decode mpeg2 ( or do you need a ATI card to do it on a towered amiga)?

Frogger rocks. I am not sure whether this will be fully licenced to play those formats thought...

Frogger works great on my towered A1200, 68060 50Mhz, 96K ram, with a mediator board and Voodoo 3 card. I have tried various formats (Avi, Mov, Mpeg) and i could play them all at fullscreen with no problem, even in a window stretched to fullscreen (in my case 800 x 600). It uses the Vlayer capability of a graphics cards to allow scaling with no overhead on the CPU, the CPU is used soley for decoding! To answer one question Mpeg (video and audio) is decoded in software and not hardware.

The only problem for people who are going to download frogger is the shareware restriction, it only plays the first 30% of the file. If you want it all you have to register, just under £10 in UK money. There are only two sharware programs i have ever registered 'WHDLoad' and 'Frogger', both of these have had a lot of work put into them and are worth every penny!

This definitely sounds like software worth buying (if you have a spec machine that supports it, natch).
