I think DirectShow was part of DirectX at one time, but it is now part of
the main windows SDK (which might be called the Platform SDK by MS).

That is the really shitty part.  Some PCs, like ones from Dell, have all of
the DLLs installed by default.  Other PCs do not have them.  Also, the
versions of various DLLs and libs might not play well together.  The idea
that every app distributed should include all of these files it idiotic.

The end user will have to either install iTunes or find the QT only download
from Apple.  They hide the latter, but hell everyone and their dog has an
iPod now right? ;)
