Why it doesn't work and how it could be fixed
Authored by: DrLex on Aug 20, '05 12:05:33PM
To avoid confusion: with "acts like a real Audio Codec", I don't mean: "acts like a RealAudio codec" :)
I mean that the current plug-in is a weird construction which seems to 'import' the whole file when it is opened, and then feeds the audio to QT, or even directly to the sound output. That explains why opening a file always causes an annoying delay, streaming is impossible, and why iTunes can't use the visualizer, sound enhancer or equalizer on Ogg audio. With a decent Audio Codec, written to Apple specifications, these problems should be gone.
