Thanks. The Mac won't play it, which is odd (usually in Finder a media
thumbnail will play) and the Mac suggests QT as a default app, wbich is no
longer supported officially.
I will try it on mobile when I get farther along, but for now I'd like to
debug on Mac during development. The LC player is blank when I set the
filename, presumably because it doesn't support QT either.
