Tried playing an embedded movie with Xfmedia:
set the videoClipPlayer to "/usr/bin/xfmedia"
play videoClip "OINK.mov"
[ Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V from the keyboard pasted into Mozilla
The videoClip started playing (admittedly only the music because I don't
have the codex / codecs installed)
and then the whole of RunRev 4.0 crashed. Whether the carsh happended
DURING the time the videoClip was
playing or subsequently I really couldn't say.
