Before I try to hard I thought I would check: Should I be
able to play a remote .mov stream (with mov123.exe decoding)?
I searched the archives but did not find a clear answer.

A sample URL would be:

http://www.cbc.ca/livemedia/cbcr1-toronto.mov

Alas, not yet. Unlike MP3 streaming, QuickTime streaming requires a
different protocol handler to decode.

Kind of figured something like that. Out of the box QuickTime
and RealAudio streams would be nice at some point in the future.
Of course so would native FLAC, etc. :-) Perhaps you need to
keep on hiring. ;-)

Back in 2004, it was requested here that *.mov files (quicktime streaming) be supported as well as Real Audio (*.ra) and FLAC. It seems that by now, Real Audio and FLAC are supported. But it also appears that quicktime is not yet supported.

Am I correct in that supposition, or am I doing something wrong?

(trying to stream www.wcmu.org/wcmu.mov which is Central Michigan Public Radio's streaming option).
