Recycled press release found at ZDNET: "This move marks a significant reduction in the amount of bandwidth
required to run audio and video through the Windows Media Player
application, and could give Microsoft an edge over rivals such as
RealNetworks and Apple's QuickTime technology. It also comes at a
time when broadband technology is becoming accessible to more
users, and streaming media to mobile devices is a possibility. "
