Re: [-empyre-] interactive video software

around the 6/3/05 Barbara Lattanzi mentioned about Re: [-empyre-] interactive video software that:
I don't know the answer to that last question of yours. I have wondered it myself in relation to online annotation of video (quicktime, flash, realMedia, anything that streams).

Recently I picked up an O'Reilly book called "Quicktime for Java" that I hope will give me a few clues. I may have to finally learn Java for real. Or maybe it is something more straightforward... dynamically changing an external xml file with perl??? (in which case you would need another small window interface in addition to the quicktime player)

yes you can. There was a custom QT client written by a design firm in Sweden which allowed live chat over a live stream all done in QT. QT reads XML files, and you can modify behaviour, or add text layers, on the basis of the xml. obviously the xml can be generated on any basis you wish.

Matthew Peterson's book on Interactive QuickTime has a very useful chapter on this.
