I think you can get access to the Software Developers Kit. Check the Apple Developers Connection for documentation. Here's
a conceptiual outline about QuickTime 7 from last year. You can find more on specific topics under the parent URL. Another source of information could be the Apple Mailing List for the QuickTime-API
Macs can use AppleScripts and, under OS X 10.4 (Tiger), Automator workflows, and they do make things easier. To join AAC tracks, you select/highlight the entries and then select the option (JoinTogether, iTunesJoin, etc.) from the drop-down icon for AppleScript menu entries. I usually handle audio and video file work on my Mac, although I did finally do a Windows install of iTunes last fall to check out some problem issues in this forum.
