Has anyone heard of QuickTimeAlternative or RealAlternative? They are a set of codecs to play QT or Real files without using the official but bloated QuickTime Player and RealPlayer. It uses DirectShow and Media Player Classic to play the files, but I have some questions on it.

I noticed that the QuickTime control panel is the same in QTA as it is in the official QT from Apple. But what irks me is that the QT pack that comes in QuickTime Alternative is that it has a QT Pro Registration code, registered to "Apple."

So, is the person behind QT/RealAlternative breaking the law by using a QuickTime pro key to distribute a free QT alternative pack to the masses?

Of course. Hacking or reverse engineering the Apple code in order to create the alternative is also illegal, in part because you have to accept a user agreement when you download QT.

You can accept it, but that doesn't mean you have to follow it.
