Quicktime 4 Linux 2.0.0
This program is intended for content creation and uncompressed movies.
It has improvements in colormodel support, bit depth, accuracy, reliability and codecs. It includes several front ends to encoders and decoders which are used by applications directly. Included in Quicktime for Linux is a front end of the libdv engine. An IEEE1394 front end is implemented in Quicktime for Linux. This front end tries to work around problems in raw1394.
A parallel JPEG engine using libjpeg is implemented with a front end. This uses 2 processors for field based JPEG compression and 1 processor for frame based compression. A general colorspace converter implements colorspace conversion with nearest neighbor scaling for the large number of nonstandard colorspaces that Cinelerra uses.
