Currently Quicktime movies with Apple Pixlet video can only be played as
long as you have a Mac running Mac OS 10.3 or beyond, and QuickTime 6
or beyond. No other single player, no other PC and no other OS will play
them.

Because of that, as of now, everything encoded in Pixlet video format is at
Apple's stake and might get outdated whenever Apple changes its mind to
support it.

It'd be nice to have an alternative free player that could handle them.
