Dan,

I just wanted to mention that you can add password protection to 
QuickTime movies using a QuickTime sprite track.  You can add logic to 
a QuickTime sprite track that will keep the movie from displaying any 
audio/visual elements unless a variable in the movie is a certain 
value.  This method does require a tool for authoring wired sprites and 
you would have to use the EnhancedQT external to set the sprite track 
variable but it is doable.
