access to text track in jit.qt.movie
[from back in 2002:]
my big thing is i would like to get the text out as
This sort of access to the text track is not supported.
So is this still the case? Is there still no way to get access to the content of a quicktime text track — as text?
If there still isn’t any way to do it, I would like to put in a formal request for it. It would just be incredibly useful to be able to annotate quicktime clips (there are simple tools for this like Macaw – http://www.whitanderson.com/macaw), and then to be able to use those annotations as a database to access different parts of the clip.
As far as knowing how the data is formatted, here’s the description from Apple’s QuickTime File Format document:
“The format of the text data is a 16-bit length word followed by the actual text. The length word specifies the number of bytes of text, not including the length word itself. Following the text, there may be one or more atoms containing additional information for drawing and searching the text.”
And as far as what the text actually looks like, there’s Apple’s QuickTime text tutorial

At the risk of sounding impatient: is this still the case? A way to get text from a quicktime movie would be great. At the moment I save a directory together with my movie file that contains text files with all kinds of metadata.
Would it be a workaround to copy the text track of a movie to a new qt.movie, save it to disk and open that file with coll?

This is still the case, but you’re just going to have to wait for it

Ok, that’s clear. To currently get a text file back into a movie shouldn’t have to be so much trouble though. I can simply copy a text file to a new track in qt.movie and it recognizes it as text track.
It’s still not very handsome of course.

How much posts until one gets a classified email with the url of “the list”? ;)
No, honestly, I understand there’s not much future in people spamming you to change a priority. Good to know that you’re monitoring all feature requests so closely.

I think it might be possible also to create new video track, lossless, with
I once stored text data in quicktime movie, but accidentally I compressed it
