you can also just check the version of the os rev is playing under on 
startup and then if its windozs then set dontuseqt to true. this avoids 
creating different apps/players for separate platforms. i lothe to 
split code on a project as when you are in bug fixing stages you have 
to versions to do each fix on and can get confusing and open to 
mistakes quickly! the few mac/pc differences ive ever had to deal with 
ive just set an os flag then where ever there is a problem deal with 
the platform specific thingie there. works well.

note if you turn off quicktime on the pc you will not be able to play 
external movies or audio files with the player object. docs say it 
should work, but it doesn't.
