Thanks. I have been using the handler you describe above, but there 
was never a picture that responds to the setting of the currentTime. 
Although the movie would "start" at the currentTime.

I'm not sure I know what you mean by "when the QT controller is 
visible." Is this a feature of RR?

I haven't taken the plunge into 2.7 as yet. Waiting for things to 
sort themselves out.

But I would appreciate it if someone would let me know whether RR has 
fixed the display problem in OS X. That is, whether the following 
stack runs as expected:

go  url ""

Does the graphic move evenly across the screen or is the  motion 
herky-jerky? Same for the banner display?
