Action Essentials - No more Quicktime on Windows

Postby BamaBleach on 05/5/2016, 8:46 am

Our IT team let us know that we would be losing Quicktime because of Alert (TA16105-A). Is there a recommended file format to transcode our .mov files to and still retain the alpha channel? I know uncompressed avi is an option but I was hoping to use something that wouldn't result in huge file sizes.

Thanks!

This "alert" bullshit is - well - bullshit. :?

The alert was triggered by a flaw in Quicktime player streaming off the web and the Quicktime browser plugin - the thing is, though, the browser plugin is disabled by default, so if you don't activate it, it's not an issue. Secondly, who the hell are using Quicktime player to watch streams off the web? Like ever?

Either way, looking to keeping codec compatibility, the best solution is to tell your IT people to uninstall then reinstall quicktime without the player. Then you can still load any mov files you need.
