Referenced control

I want to put a large movie (126 Mb) onto a CD and play it from a Rev 
standalone file. Part of our school yearbook...

(Rev does not appear to want to build a standalone with an imported 
movie of this size. Is there an optimum file size not to exceed when 
building a standalone?)

It was simple to reference it on the Mac and it works well in the Rev 
stack building environment. Next, I built a standalone for the Windows 
platform, half expecting the movie to be in the data folder. It isn't. 
Where should I put the movie, and at what point?

If I am to put it on the CD, together with the standalone, but not 
inside the data folder, is it enough simply to have it in the same 
folder as the Rev stack while referencing it?

Baie dankie uit Kaapstad.
