the long name of me OR the long ID of me?

Josh,

The "long name" includes the object specifier, so I don't think you need to 
use the object with the long name, like "enable btn tLongName" but do 
instead "enable tLongName"

As to why 'set the filename of tPlayer() to "blahblah.mov"' isn't working, 
I don't know.  If you use "long name" instead of "long ID" does it work 
more reliably?  You might want to put the return of tPlayer() into a 
variable and make sure it does contain what you are thinking it should in 
all cases.
