Correct. It's a proprietary format licensed by Apple and it's not
supported by MPlayer. Basic version is included with QT4 and up.
The Professional version costs 400USD. But:

Is the QDesign Music technology available for licensing so I can include it
into my application?

Yes. The QDesign Music technology is available for licensing directly from
QDesign Corporation. Please contact QDesign for details: enquiries at qdesign.com.

So maybe someone should ask them about it? Has anyone tried?
