Is Quicktime API calls inside JavaFX?

Hi Phil,

What happened is when I submitted my app package it 
uploaded and Apple ran a check and pointed out the issue but did not 
suggest a solution.
There are other solutions for video out there but
 not sure Apple would approve. I will find out soon with my next app but
 for now trying not to throw too much technology at them at once.

Oracle may be interested in what I am up to and why I think it is very important I get my app approved for the Apple App Store.

Best Regards,

Thanks I read it. I also added a new issue regarding Apple now needing a pinfo file for the jdk plugin inside the bundle created by JavaFX deploy.

I presume that Apple now want you to use AVKit which is new in 10.9.
However I don't understand how you can develop an app that targets 10.8 
if its
unable to use QTKit since that's all there is on  10.8 or earlier.

Does the AppStore  really disallow targeting something like half the 
installed base ??
