You did indeed, sims, and your good offices were the sole reason that I
persisted. There are, however, fundamental functional differences in ability
to play, let alone ability to control, different movie formats between the
RevUI, the mcUI, and a standAlone (where rev and mc obviously coincide). I
have bugzilla'd this as #6672 with a checklist summary of findings at
What really surprises me is that a player object in the RevUI cannot display
a JPEG whereas the mcUI has no problem, and that the RevUI is able to handle
MWV (albeit handicapped without a controller) but the mcUI cannot reference
such files at all.
All most frustrating and not a little contradictory in delivery.
