Change absolute link to relative link

Hi Steve,

I suppose you have a number of QT players which have absolute link paths.

Put all the QT Mov files in the same folder as your application.

Then in your openStack handler:

set the filename of player "myPlayer1" to ""
set the filename of player "myPlayer2" to ""

If this doesn't work correctly, it might be because your players are 
already assigned the filename. In that case try:

set the filename of player "myPlayer1" to empty
set the filenmee of player "myPlayer1" to ""

this 'cycling' of the filenames forces the player to load correctly. Of 
course, the QT mov may automatically start, so you should take care of 
that with a stop command.
