Zinc vs Apollo, mdm is kind of off

I noticed an article on MDM’s website where they are comparing Zinc to Apollo. Now that in itself isn’t a bad thing, but I should point out Apollo is in alpha. Interesting that they forgot one of the most important points which would be the price. Why can’t Apollo play external video? I mean it can load files locally, so what gives? I also know developers are experimenting with SQLite support so that point isn’t 100% true.

Figure from www.multidmedia.com

Basically I think mdm is pushing their own product and that isn’t the best way, especially considering how much you have to shell out for Windows, Mac and Linux development kits so you can make it “cross-platform”. Just my 2 cents. Thanks for reading.

    it does make sense that they post this because there are many who have no idea what solution is better and currently zinc is still the better solution, but they are comparing themselves to an incomplete product. =)
