Is Quicktime API calls inside JavaFX?

Therein lies The Problem, and why we had to go with QTKit when we supported 10.6... Every two releases they seem to deprecate half-baked APIs in favor of some new half-baked API. At least as of 10.8 that seems to have stabilized somewhat, as we transition more and more to an iOS clone.
We had issues with AVFoundation not working the way we needed and it wasn't available on 10.6. It's supposed to work correctly (never had time to confirm) on 10.8 but that still leaves 10.7 out in the cold. So we'll likely have to stick with QTKit for older releases and move to AVFoundation in 10.8 and later. Ideally, the QTKit component would be separate so it could be removed allowing MAS apps to still support A/V playback. I think the QTKit component can be dropped completely in FX 9 but it needs to be there in FX 8.
AVKit is a high level component that sits on top of AVFoundation, it doesn't look useful for our purposes at first glance.
