A library for reading and writing quicktime/avi/mp4 files

libquicktime is a library for reading and writing quicktime files. It
is based on the quicktime4linux library, with the following

  * Sourcetree upgraded with autoconf/automake/libtool and all the
    other stuff, people like in "standard" linux libraries.

  * All 3rd party libraries (jpeg, OggVorbis) were removed to reduce
    download size, compilation time and code duplication on users harddisks.
    Instead, the sytemwide installed libraries are autodetected by the
    configure script.

  * All codecs have been moved into dynamically loadable modules.
    This makes it possible to distribute closed source codecs (or codecs
    with an incompatible license) as separate packages.

  * Unlike other quicktime libraries, we are source compatible with
    quicktime4linux. Programs like cinelerra or xmovie can be compiled with
    libquicktime (if the build system is modified, see our web page for more

  * The codecs themselves are also source compatible with
    quicktime4linux, so porting codecs between quicktime4linux and
    libquicktime requires only little brain load.

  * Special API extensions allow access to the codec registry.
    Applications can get important information about the codecs, their
    settable parameters etc. at runtime.
