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.
