QuickTime Update Corrects NOLF2 Sound Issue
8:08 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story

Apple has released a small update to their QuickTime software, bringing it to version 6.5.1. The changes are mostly related to general audio handling, but an astute IMG Forum reader noticed the update also appears to have fixed the audio playback issue plaguing MacPlay's first person shooter No One Lives Forever 2.

The bug made it hard to play the game using OS X 10.3 Panther and on Jaguar with QuickTime 6.4 or later. While no official word is out from MacPlay, it has been tested on an IMG staff computer with successful results.

From the update's readme file:

QuickTime 6.5.1 delivers many important updates, including:
  • Apple Lossless Encoder, a new lossless audio codec that retains the full quality of uncompressed CD audio while requiring only about half the storage space.
  • Significant improvements to AAC encoding, resulting in high-quality sound over a full range of audio frequencies.
  • Enhanced support for iTunes and other QuickTime-based applications.
  • The update is currently available from Apple's QuickTime download. It should show up on Software Update shortly, but until then you can find the download below.
