"We've began preparations for the real release: this pre-release is the RC1.
There are quite some features about it which make it the player supporting
all modern codecs of the world today. No other player can boast with support
for all of RealAudio/Video 9, Windows Media Audio/Video 9, Quicktime
Sorenson 3, QDesign Music Audio."

Might need a newer version ;)

"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "We're all mad here. I'm mad.
You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
