just wanted to add my two cents worth re Quicktime 4: QT4 (QT5 is out in a
few weeks) is free (both server and client) for the software as well as for
streams. it is also open source, using real time streaming protocol.

i spend a lot of time watching streaming quicktime on a 33.6k modem on a
four year old computer and the results are good. obviously, on the leased
line in the office, it's even better.

while real has an undeniable market share, i feel compelled to support
opensource initiatives and will be working with quicktime alongside other
media in the spirit of keeping the network as open and collaborative as

2c over ;-)
