Hi Xavier,

Thanks for the suggestion.  That would probably do it for many cases -
unfortunately I want to be able to tell when the sound is finished, and
possibly also to dynamically fade the volume.  So if I can get a player
object working in Rev, that would be optimal.

My current situation is that on one Windows XP machine, without QuickTIme,
this works fine; on another machine, running Windows XP embedded, it does
not (although Media Player 9 is installed on that machine, and working
fine).  I'm trying to track down the critical difference.
