Reader: QT MPEG2 expires

A MacNN reader located in the U.K. reports that Apple's (which retails for 20) "times-out December 15th whether you just bought it or not." There is nothing on the Apple Web site to explain this behavior.

    Hmmm

    I know they had some licensing issues with MPEG-2, wonder if it will only affect UK users though.

    From the FAQ..

    http://www.apple.com/quicktime/products/mpeg2playback/faq.html

    "My MPEG-2 Playback Component has stopped working. What should I do?
    A new version of the QuickTime 6 MPEG-2 Playback Component is now available. This new version includes performance enhancements and is required for compatibility with QuickTime 6.3.

    Nope.

    Re-downloading is NOT the answer. Before you chastise our intelligence, you should be SURE you're right.
