More information on videoclip problem.  When I went back to try this 
again, I WAS able to play the QuickTime .mov clip both in the 
application browser (by double clicking on the clip) and from a script.

However, the .mpg  (mpeg-1 compressed) file still does not work. I did 
try opening the MPEG file in QuickTime player and it played just fine 
that way.

The only other difference between the two files is size: the .mov file 
is 1.6 meg, the MPEG file is between 9 and 10 megs. Is there a size 
limit on imported videoclips?
