Turn on the player's alwaysBuffer property.

This is off by default for performance reasons; when it's on it draws 
the movie into Rev's offscreen buffer so Rev can overlay objects on top. 
  When off QT blits directly into the window as it does in most apps.

Because of the overhead involved in buffering the controller will not be 
enabled while the alwaysBuffer is true.
