Apple Ends Support for QuickTime for Windows…

I am wondering if this will change things in Videohive since most footages are coded with
photo jpeg (mov) format…
Here’s Adobe’s answer on the issue:

Wow, this is big hit.

I was thinking about this the other day: why still be insistent on .mov file format exclusively, when even some of the upscale cameras record different formats?

Its just very clever Apple trick to shock the whole Windows world.

I don’t understand enough coding to know for sure, but I have seen just as many people linking to that site as an example of ignoring a problem as people who say that the content of that article is true.

Adobe still uses parts of Quicktime and my understanding so far, from several (german) sources is that the security issues are also present when After Effects is opening an infected .mov.
I wouldn’t rely on that website just because it is the most comfortable answer and feeds the everyday conspiracy theory of Apple vs Windows.

If there wasn’t a problem, Adobe wouldn’t have already reacted and stated that they are working on not using Quicktime anymore in their programs.
