Thanks. I have been using the handler you describe above, but there
was never a picture that responds to the setting of the currentTime.
Although the movie would "start" at the currentTime.
I'm not sure I know what you mean by "when the QT controller is
visible." Is this a feature of RR?
I haven't taken the plunge into 2.7 as yet. Waiting for things to
sort themselves out.
But I would appreciate it if someone would let me know whether RR has
fixed the display problem in OS X. That is, whether the following
stack runs as expected:
go url "http://home.infostations.net/jhurley/DisplayProblemsOSX.rev"
Does the graphic move evenly across the screen or is the motion
herky-jerky? Same for the banner display?
