Depends on the control you require (basic video playback control can be done
with Windows Media Player) but also how strict you plan to be with regard to
the media technology.  The user needs *some* kind of media technology to
play video -- just because the user has a Windows system doesn't mean
they're guaranteed to have a media player.  If your users cannot use your
software without media technology, you'll have to specify your system
requirements: QT for both platforms, or QT for Mac and something like WMP
for Windows.
