Player Progress?

I have been messing around with a QT external based on Tim Monroe's 
example.  It supports the GetMaxLoadedTimeInMovie QT API call which 
will give you the amount of the movie downloaded in the movies 
timscale.  You could use this with the duration property of the player 
to show percentage downloaded.

You are welcome to have the external code I have so far in order to 
create your own solution.  I am not a C programmer so there are 
probably some things that could be cleaned up and some better error 
checking but thing work in the tests I have done so far and it would 
show you what needs to be done.

Let me know if you are interested.
