Quicktime X doesn't do SMIL but does text tracks

Hi Jorge,

Quicktime X can, however, handle text tracks that are embedded in the video as opposed to SMIL's external text tracks.
You should have been prompted to download QT 7 the first time that QT X runs into something it can't (yet?) do.

hope this helps.
