Set the dontUseQT property to true, and it should revert to using Windows
MediaPlayer which should play MP3's and MPEG files in a player object. Also
depends whether you want to play short embedded clips or full movies/sound
recordings from files.

Looks like you should sit down and do a full read of the multimedia docs, if
you haven't already. There is lotsa stuff in there.
