The latest book in Morgan Kaufmann's QuickTime Developer Series,
"QuickTime for .NET and COM Developers", is now available - http://
book was written by John Cromie, one of the architects of the new
QuickTime 7 ActiveX control and COM library.
The publisher describes the book thusly:
QuickTime for .NET and COM Developers is a practical guide
to the use of QuickTime for application developers using
popular Microsoft component-oriented development tools such

and C#. A general introduction to QuickTime features and
their potential application is followed by a detailed

Additionally, the book also includes chapters on scripting
QuickTime Player and using QuickTime in MS Office applications so it
is not just for application developers.
I enthusiastically recommend this book to anyone interested in
using the new QuickTime 7 COM controls.
