Hi Ro and Chipp,

this is an excerpt from a conversation i had with Mr. Scott Raney,
concerning "play ac..." an players...

It may help...

> 2. (windows only)
> One cannot use quicktime(-players) and "play ac xxx" together.
> Of course not together at the same time but you can't mix them.
> Multisounds with QT or single-sound with "play..."
> Even the (system) "beep" command does not work then.
> Right ?
>> Right.
> Looks like QT is taking over the universe ;-)
>> QT *will* play most sound files with "play vc xxx" and will mix when
>> required, though you can only have one ac playing at a time.

Hope this helps.
