    iTunes Incredisize

    Wow, just watched the Incredisized version. Full screen but uses iTunes 4.5. Streamed well over broadband. One step closer to movies on demand!!!

    itunes

    Why iTunes to view the full screen trailer? That makes no sense.

    HuH?

    I'm not on a fast enough connection to test it, so can you clarify what you mean, Andrewhicks? Are you saying it plays the movie through iTuens? Is something going on here I don't know about?


    Also: good trailer.

    Re: iTunes

    Have you guys been under a rock for the past month. iTunes 4.5 has a section on the Music Store that lets you see full Music videos and Movie trailers.

    Other new features:
    Look up your local area radio stations and see what their play rotation is, and if iTunes has the songs you can buy them, so if you hear a song on the radio and wonder what it was, you can check the rotation and buy the song if you want.

    You can also publish your "iMix" a playlist of music to the store and people can purchase from iTunes your particular list of music (no, you don't make any money on this)

    Not under a rock, just not interested enough to learn all about every Mac development.

    Not under, On!!

    Not under a rock, but on a rock in the middle of the Atlantic.

    Also, in Europe, we still don't have the full iTunes experience, so I don't browse very often.

    I knew they had introduced movie trailers through iTunes 4.5, but had not yet tested the feature. It took me a little by surprise, but this played much faster on full screen than I had seen in quicktime.

    Incred-Sized but...

    Funny I was really hoping the Incredisized version would be in Pixlet format, but no... just Sorenson 3

    Has anything been done with Pixlet? I mean it's on Apple's Panther page, but who the h*** uses it? If not Pixar then who!?!

    Pixlet isn't designed for internet delivery, but rather for in-house production. Incred-Sized indeed, the file would be huge.
