Sacha QT is all over the place. It is mostly unseen, I have some
video on my website in QT but I use QT heavily in video editing. The
main reason you see so much Flash for video is YouTube, it has taken
over video on the web but it is vastly inferior for the most part but
it has 99% market penitration so it looks like it has won for the
moment. It seems like the buzz these days is for youtube like video,
even though most of it looks really crappy. I have been putting video
on my websites for about 10 years all in QT.
It is unfortunate that Apple has dropped the ball with QTVR support
and interactivity, most all of it broken in the current releases of
QT. It looks like flash is going to be the huge winner with
interactive apps. With faster computers flash is getting to be the
real gorilla for interactive web stuff, flash for so long was
terrible for the end user since most developers couldn't optimize it
properly and it took forever for it to load and sucked so much
