One of the major peculiarities in my book is that the two blue colors in
the video sample description and the white background are THREE colors
together. Not exactly what I would call 1-bit video. I have absolutely
no idea what they are doing in QuickTime, since this stuff is totally
undocumented, but obviously they use three color indices in order to be
able to provide this white background.
