Unfortunately, this is not working for me. When I tested on Windows
2000 with Rev 2.6, the Start Player command did not work, even though
your tests showed it works under Windows. I get the same response as
on the Mac--the player tries to connect and never does. Then, when I
try using set the playRate to 1, Rev completely hangs and I have to
force-quit. This was completely repeatable.

Why would I be getting such different results as you?
