This is called palindrome looping and is possible using QuickTime  
though Revolution doesn't have built-in support for it.  It you don't  
mind using an external then you can use the EnhancedQT external to  
set the loop type of a movie in a player object to "palindrome".  The  
command you would need is qtMakeMovieLoop.  You can find the  
documentation for this at:


Click on "Movie Properties" in the frame on the left and then click  
on qtMakeMovieLoop in the list of handlers.  The external is  
available here:
