If this is only being called when you click the mouse button then I
wouldn't think that it would cause a problem. Are you using the
QuickTime controller to display controls to the user? It appears
that you have your own progress bar from the code above and it seems
odd that you have a progress bar that isn't being updated by some
code somewhere. Is "myProgressBar" being used to show playback
status? If so, how is it being updated?

Just set the fileName of the player to the path of a still image.
You can load any media type that QuickTime supports. By the way, is
your player object using QuickTime or did you set dontUseQT to true?
If you aren't using QT then there may be other issues at play that I
am not aware of.
