An AppleScript to open iTunes videos in QuickTime

No, iTunes does not use WebKit in any way. iTMS uses a specially designed XML format to build the pages. So in a way, you can say iTunes is actually designed to play movies.

Perhaps you've heard of XSLT.
It's stylesheets to display XML in any way, and it's fully supported by WebKit.

So yes, iTMS does use WebKit.

Actually, *no, it doesn't*. Here's Dave Hyatt, a chief engineer of Safari (and WebKit) saying it doesn't. My guess is it's something using some of QuickTime's abilities - I once saw an iPod campaign site by Apple where QuickTime was used a bit like Flash.
