[Eric Santiago] "DNxHD/HR is also in my workflow to date but can that ultimately replace QT on the Windows side?"

That's a codec and can certainly exist in a .mov (Quicktime) container (as well as .mxf of course). Whereas ProRes only exists in .mov container. Just making sure people understand the difference between codecs and containers. BTW .mov container is not limited to use in Quicktime. H.264 .mov files play just fine in Windows Media Player.

I'd also add that Quicktime Frameworks is deprecated on Mac as well. You can't sell anything in the Mac App store that depends on it. Apps have to use AVFoundation (Core Media). Regarding codecs, try opening an Animation .mov in Quicktime X and it'll convert it to ProRes 4444 (to preserve alpha channel) for playback.

For whatever reason there's no news about Quicktime 7 vulnerabilities on Mac OS though.

It's really about building decoders in the programs rather than external dependancies.
