QuickTime 4.0.3 Update Tweaks Streaming Performance -- Apple has updated QuickTime to version 4.0.3, adding new content provider links to the QuickTime Player's Favorites drawer and fixing a handful of bugs. The maintenance update improves audio and video synchronization in live streaming events, fixes a rare crashing bug while receiving streaming content, includes QuickTime for Java 3.0.1, and resolves a problem between QuickTime VR and the Grolier Encyclopedia. If you've already installed QuickTime 4, running the QuickTime Updater program will cause it to connect to Apple's servers and download the updated components. Otherwise, you can download the 380K QuickTime installer. [JLC]

Press Control-Shift-Eject and your monitor sleeps without engaging the screen saver.
