QT movie address in player

The movie isn't ever "embedded", it's always referenced to a movie file
on disk. The main thing you want to do is make sure that the fileName
property of the player object is a path that is relative to your
standalone, and not an absolute path. For example, if you had the
standalone in a folder, and there was a subfolder called "movies" that
had the movie "test.mov", you would set the player object to have a
fileName of "movies/test.mov".

Hope this helps,
