I'm now doing what you say - but I am not clear where this leaves the 
idea of a video clip or movie played directly, i.e. not in a player 
object. Maybe I should simply forget about it. As far as I can see, 
my player object is playing a QT file (external to the player) not a 
clip - is this right? Also, is the player object the only way to play 
a movie? I didn't read this into the Transcript dictionary's entry 
for the 'play' command, which doesn't mention player objects at all.

Still interested
