API Notes: QTKit framework


An introduction to PyObjC describes the general method for translating Objective-C calls into Python calls, including the handling of pass-by-reference arguments and buffers.

This document describes where the PyObjC bindings for this framework are different from the general rule, such as mentioning APIs that are not supported or where the interface is different than expected.

API Notes

  • Functions QTMakeTimeWithTimeRecord and QTGetTimeRecord are not supported.
  • The integration with classical Quicktime API is not properly tested at the moment. Furthermore that API is deprecated by Apple, and not available in 64-bit code. Use the QTKit API where possible.


This framework is deprecated in OSX 10.9, use the AVKit and AVFoundation frameworks instead.
