Lost PlayStopped Message

Mark, there is a series of problems with QuickTime in standalone on Mac 
OSX -- I also had a case last week where things worked ok in the 
development environment, but would not work in the standalone.  The 
guys from the RunRev team are aware of it and working on the engine 
solution, but they suggested in the meantime  a workaround that forces 
the player to refresh...  I don't know if this will solve your 
particular problem (i wasn't having problems with onPlayStopped), but 
it may give you an idea...

local isplaying

on playstarted
   put true into isplaying
   send refreshme to me in 300 milliseconds
end playstarted

on refreshme
   if isplaying is true then
     set the opaque of me to not the opaque of me
     send refreshme to me in 300 milliseconds
   end if
end refreshme

on playStopped
   put false into isplaying
end playStopped

all best,
