Introduction to QuickTime Guide For Windows

QuickTime is perfectly at home working with Windows code. But because it grew up in the Macintosh world, QuickTime uses some Mac OS features that don’t exist in Windows.

The event-loop structure of Windows programming is remarkably similar to that of the Macintosh, however. The differences lie in the implementation details, not in the basic approach. The major differences that affect QuickTime are discussed in this document, along with sample code illustrating usage.
