Apple Announces Public Preview of QuickTime 6

Apple today announced that the public preview of QuickTime 6 is now available as a free download from Apple for both Mac and Windows. QuickTime 6 is the industry's first mainstream MPEG-4 solution for streaming media to all MPEG-4 compliant players. In addition, Apple announced the public preview of QuickTime Broadcaster, which captures and encodes QuickTime content in MPEG-4 for live streaming over the web.

Haven't seen much MPEG movies around. It's mostly RealPlayer or AVI format. If Mpeg is a standard, how comes we dont see it much around? Is it the size of files, quality of images, marketing, licencing fee? Can anyone enligthen me on this?

MPEG-4 is the technology they want to charge per play basis right? Little too late for that I believe however I will download the preview just because im sure it has more updates to offer than that.
