    So no one in the world has created a quicktime plug-in/codec for windows media player?

    And some one has yet to make a real player codec too?

    Nope. The quicktime codec is a proprietary codec to Apple's quicktime player. There are front end players that can use the codec, but to get the codec you still need to install Quicktime player (frontend/codec)

    Real player codec, another proprietary codec.

    -crontab -l

    Intellectual property and proprietary systems are lost on you...

    Its the same reason Burger King can't have Arby's special sauce or KFCs blend of spices on their chicken (not that they ever wanted it - just using it as an example).

    Its similar to why Mac programs don't work on a PC.

    Why a Honda ECU probably won't work in a Ford.

    On that note, who the hell cares are the quicktime and real player codec? How about the Vivo codec?

    -crontab -r

    And why the fuck is WMP any better than QuickTime or RealPlayer (well, I can see RealOne I guess)? I don't really like any of them (especially on Windows)...
