Bah, Quicktime sucks on Windows.

1) I can't figure out how to encode anything it will play without paying
Apple. Last I tried, it refused to even play plain old MPEG1.
2) The updater constantly insists on installing iTunes. I chose the
Quicktime only installer for a reason. I DON'T WANT ITUNES!

I installed QT so I could play the CSI thing, and I'm really regretting

gstreamer seems to be very broken in, and from what I
understand its been broken for a while. I took a shot at fixing it but
it seems its an arcane threading issue with glib and damned if I know
how to fix it. I really want to work on using it to get audio streaming
in OpenAL but it's b0rked. Should I Jira this?
