We may have figured it out. My client is audio-proficient and made
several different mp3 files to test. I'm not sure what wrappers he used
exactly but we found three types that work in Windows without QT, so we
aren't totally stuck after all.
The down side is that mp3 doesn't support cue points (he says) and we
need those. I didn't think LC callbacks depended on the file encoding, I
thought the player would just check its currentTime on its own. But no
messages are being sent, so I must be wrong (does anyone know for sure?)
I could write a script that does the polling, but it seems to me
callbacks should work.
