Description (last modified by curtis)

When attempting to save using the Motion JPEG-B codec, there is a failure within the QuickTime for Java code claiming that the codec is not present, even though QTJava reports it as available elsewhere:

curtis@monk:~/java$ java MakeQT ~/data/ome-tiff/curtis/time-series.ome.tif

For now, we can leave the option to save as Motion JPEG-B commented out, since such support is not a high priority.
