On XP and RR 1.5 and 2.0 beta

set the filename of player 1 to "C:/"
works fine.

set the filename of player 1 to URL "file:C:/"
crashes the environment. is a progressive mov. I would like to be able to:

set the filename of player 1 to URL
"" and have it begin to
playback almost instantly (on a fast connection).

but this doesn't work either. do you stream video from the web to a
RR/MC client?
