iTunes Could Use CoreVideo

The iTunes Music store employs a lovely little reflection on its videos in preview mode, but the video loses the reflectivity when playing:

Music Store Reflection

What a great opportunity to use CoreVideo! I mean, c'mon Apple, put some effort into it! The videos in the store would look so much better with that lovely little reflection.

  1. Probably Apple did not do it because iTunes is cross-platform nowadays. So I guess the rendering engine for the store content does not use OS X-specific technologies.

  2. iTunes looks more Windows-like now with the freakish corners and odd user interface features. Adding something too Mac-like would ruin the expectations of Windows users who want the generic and crappy uniform look for their OS of "choice." 😉

  3. Also, it'd run quite slowly on older Macs.
