You have to set alwaysBuffer to true so QT doesn't draw direct to the 
screen but you will see a serious performance hit by doing this.  If 
you are only displaying the button while the video is stopped then you 
will be fine but if you want a button that appears while video is 
playing then you may want to consider adding the button to the QT movie 
directly using a tool like LiveStage or GoLive.
