On Macs, yes, because that's pretty much the default technology available,
and it is true that the player object is optimized for QuickTime.  But on
Windows it is possible to use whatever default media technology is installed
(usually Windows Media Player) by setting the dontUseQT to true.  The
drawback is you don't get as much control over playback as you do using
QuickTime.  Note that you can also import video into a stack as a videoClip.

If you have specific questions about QT, you might ask Trevor DeVore, one of
the QT gurus on the list.
