It will even be automatically mounted if needed when the folder is browsed in Silver Screen. To make the alias, mount the server or other disk in the Finder, locate the folder containing the movies and Command-Option-drag the folder's icon into your Movies directory.

QuickTime 4.0.3 Update Tweaks Streaming Performance

Send Article to a Friend

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]
