Which versions are you using of Rev and QuickTime on the PC?  My 
understanding is that the latest version of Rev/QT doesn't support 
the click-to-pause/click-to-continue method.  This is a change from 
an earlier version of Rev/QT which did support this method. I display 
the control bar in my apps so the user can stop/start/rewind QT video 
clips.  Alternatively, I provide a separate, non-overlapping 
graphic/button for stop/start.
