Default .mov Panoramas on PPC

(I've searched for a Topic like this but I didn't found something)

Hello,
I need a player which plays Quicktime's *.mov Panoramas.

Please Help

Unfortunately, there is no 100% compatible QT viewer because the Sonrenson Video 3, SVQ3 codec is not supported by any player.

Please see http://discussion.brighthand.com/sho...hreadid=117348 and http://discussion.brighthand.com/sho...hreadid=111612 on this.

If you, however, don't want sound, BetaPlayer may work.

If you have access to a desktop computer before playing, you may want to convert your .mov files with, say, the Xilisoft Video Converter.

Unfortunately you won't find a player that can do it as there are two major problems, firstly all the panoramas i've seen use the Sorenson Video 1 codec which is unsupported on PPCs, secondly they use the QuickTime VR format which is also unsupported on PPCs.

The MOV file format is not a simple (comparatively speaking) Audio/Video container like AVI or Matroska but instead can include interactive content which makes it more closely related to Flash or MP4 files. Even if the codec was supported in Betaplayer all you would end up with is a huge single frame crammed onto your PPCs screen.

I suppose you could extract the panorama with something like Cubic Converter and re-author it using a Java based panorama viewer like PTViewer though I have no idea whether this actually works.

Many thanks to all for this help an tips.

First I installed the Betaplayer to show the .mov Panoramas and...
well, there is a small stripe on the screen in which the player plays the Panorama as a video.
So I can't move the Panorama on my own and its not the real size.
But its the first player which opens .mov files.

Next I'll try OddbOd's Idea...
